Yeah, we think she'll do just fine. I'd been holding off on too much training the past 2 weeks since I wanted her to get settled and show her true personality so that we could provide accurate feedback to Violet. Now we're starting training; she's got sit, am starting to work on the rest including w...

ok... weekend update: I AM NOT A WALKING CHEWTOY G**^&^&MMIT!


fine print: yes, we're working on the mouthy puppy part, she & Cody were just playing at my feet and apparently my feet looked good to nibble on.

And one more update with pics! It was sunny out so I could take some pics showing the weight she has gained (and some healing). When we gave her a bath the first day we noticed she had some chew marks on her face - presumably from her neglected condition - they are healing quite nicely and the fur h...

Sorry for the multiple replies, but I remembered one more funny thing about this girl that was noteworthy. She's more scared of big dogs running at her... now let me qualify that statement: Cody and she play great... they get wound up, zoomie all over the house (not good, but eh...) play, etc. Get h...

Haven't actually weighed her but yes, she is putting on weight. Her spin is now no longer pronounced and her hips are almost covered. I'd estimate she's put on a pound or two easily. We're feeding her 3x/day plus the play time and walks trying to make sure she's staying healthy :) Edit to add galler...

Violet - Cool. Keep us updated. A few more things I forgot to mention: She's picking up Cody's habits a little. We allow him on the couch with us when invited... she hasn't figured out the 'invite' part yet so we try to keep her on the floor in a pillow right next to the couch, but sometimes that ju...

Ok.. time for the just over a week Bella update. I'll be posting pics in the gallery later today for anyone who needs their puppy fix, but figured I'd use this thread to discuss my observations of her in hopes of adding more info to anyone who might be interested in her. So... her personality has re...

Thanks... we're glad to have her... wait until tomorrow or shortly there after; it just turned into joint zoomies around here & I got some funny pics.

Edit to add: Violet - I completely agree, it made sense to have the tech take the little red girl given the situation.

She's beautiful! Who has her sister? From what Violet told me the Vet tech who had been taking her home decided to foster her. Sorry, this is not about bella, but your black&white dog. What breed is he? He looks just like our Simon, with a very slightly different pattern, and we have heard pit,...

Meet Bella; our new foster

Well, you may recognize Bella from this thread: http://www.pitbullforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=114053 We are fostering her for Violet and brought her home a few hours ago. She was a bit timid at first but has opened right up. Cody is playing very nice with her :peace: We'll post more pictures as we fin...

Timeline of pre thanksgiving or pre christmas? I'll be out of town for both, but xgiving is shorter (so less expensive kennel costs).

How long had she been fostered for? I ask because I might try to convince my better half to foster, but with the holidays coming up we have lots of travel plans. Also, with regards to the crate, what type did she bust out of? The thick plastic travel kind or something of thinner material? I work fro...
