Greetings from Kentucky

Postby batink » Mon Sep 15, 2008 3:21 pm

Hi everyone. My name is Burt and I'm the proud dad of 3 dogs. Buddy is a lab mix, Bailey is a cocker spaniel mix and Belle is a pibble.

Belle competes in disc dog competitions and is pretty good at it. My 12 year old son also competes with her. He's actually won more medals than I have! We have recently started fostering pit bulls with a local rescue here, we placed our first one in a forever home and are working to find a home for "Nuxy" right now.

We are very active in promoting a positive image for pit bulls and look forward to seeing what's going on here at the forum.

Here are a couple of photos:

This is Nuxy, our current foster dog. He's 6-7 mo. old.

Thanks very much! I actually just got an email from the director of our local shelter. She's interested in working with me to find pibbles a forever home. Although there is no BSL in our county our shelter does not currently adopt out pit bulls. Hopefully I can help change that situation!
