Re: FABULOUS- Pit Bull Mixes in KANSAS CITY, MO

Knowing there are cats in the house is causing Sully a lot of stress. He is also stressed because I keep pulling in fosters and our time together is growing shorter. Good news is that Sully will be going to live with his forever family on Sunday to be an only child. I'd love to keep Sully, but reali...

Re: KCMO Shelter Pit Bull Thread

Kentucky is ADOPTED I'm going to speak with our rescue coordinator about pulling for out of state rescues. Right now, the shelter is at capacity and we are paying approved local rescues $25/dog with full vetting. Let me get with her and our director and shelter manager and see what we can work out w...

Hi guys, expect to see a lot of these from me, so I just made my own thread. I work that the KCMO shelter and we have several exquisite pit bulls and pit bull mixes looking for homes. We are a high volume kill shelter but we try not to euthanize unless all of our options are exhausted. These dogs ar...

Re: FABULOUS- Pit Bull Mixes in KANSAS CITY, MO

Since Sully would do best in a sporting or working home, I'm posting him here as a last ditch effort to get him into one. It's not going to break my heart if he doesn't leave me, and I'm sure he wouldn't mind either. He's got a strange story. He's the first foster I've had since my ill-fated Sally, ...

Re: FABULOUS- Pit Bull Mixes in KANSAS CITY, MO

I want to see pictures, but I think the albums or pictures are set to private? I am so curious to see Sully!! Sent from my ATRIX using Tapatalk The puppy album should be public. Here is Sully's courtesy listing via Missouri Pit Bull rescue. He is with me via foster. The bio is a little old. He is l...

FABULOUS- Pit Bull Mixes in KANSAS CITY, MO

Sully Sully is a very high drive pit bull mix. He has the coat and wrinkles of a shar pei, and looks kind of like a rottweiler with his coloring, but don't be fooled! He is ALL bully in his attitude. I would prefer this dog to go to a working or sporting home, NO EXCEPTIONS. He is extremely toy mot...

Got her out in the front yard today and the street with a flat collar. I let her sniff and sort of drag me around and get used to the smells and noises. I moved her over to my side and took over from there once she was comfortable. I started off at a walk, and then I picked up the pace a bit, and sh...

When dogs refuse to walk on a leash, it's often because of hip pain, or else stress overload, or else plain old boredom, so they shut down. First, have a vet check her hips and her pads. Second, please get rid of the prong--it's now associated in her mind with lying down instead of walking, so what...

Oh, and her sits are most excellent. Prompt, eyes on me, and very enthusiastic. But when we start moving... different story.

Well, I just posted in general about her becoming a foster again instead of a keeper. We are still going to continue her training, though. First, when we walk with the prong and she stops, I DO NOT continue pulling. I immediately walk back to her to relieve the tension on the leash. I don't want to ...

Sally won't walk!

I have Sally in a beginner class and we are learning to heel and sit when stopped. She wears a prong collar and does well with it at home when we practice in the yard or the house. She does great, actually. Now, when we are in class or walking in the street, she will abruptly stop, lay down and refu...

There is a Presa breeder that says not to use ace (or some other drugs) in that breed. If its the same presa breeder I know she lost two pups cropping on ace once :-/ I think it might be if she is the one in IL. She is a nice lady. I've been wanting to get out and see her dogs work for a while but ...

I have thought about doing the raw thing, but I don't know too much about it. I try to stick with kibble, because for me its more convenient. I just can't afford $70 a month on dog food, no matter how good it is. I don't want to slack on quality, but that price is just absolutely outrageous! I would...
