Fresh meat, Rocky and me.....

Postby Lemontrucker » Wed Sep 24, 2008 7:46 pm

hey all. I am a 24year old from upstate NY. I got rocky 6 months ago as a rescue, he was 5 months. So he is about 11 now. He is American bulldog and APBT. He loves going to the park to play and isn't much of a swimmer. His best friend (other than me) is our cat, Boo. He loves to drink a lot of water and then lick her with a sloppy tongue. I can't type too much more because I'm doing this from my phone. But I love art, music, movies, and animals. I have a limited social life, so most times, I am just hanging out with rocky somewhere.

And here he is a couple days after I got him. A puppy still, but not small.

Thanks guys. It's funny to compare these pictures back to back, he grew up so much in like 4 months. But he still knows how to make that puppy face.

I am not allowed to post on anything else yet, so I will talk a little more about myself and Rock here. He is a big weenie. He was terrified of EVERYTHING when i got him, I could barely walk him down the street. Since then, he is no longer afraid of cars, things that move and most people. He is a little shy with people he meets for the first time, but eventually warms up well and becomes a pain to that person (leaning, begging to be pet, licking). He is still pretty scared of kids, being that they run and scream, etc. If they are moving slow, he will be curious, but the other day at the park, and unsupervised child chased him until he hid behind me for the proceeding 15 minutes. I am working on that. He does love other dogs though, we go to the park frequently. But he is big and clumsy, and has knocked over a few people who were chatting instead of watching their dogs. I always keep an eye on him, even though we have never had any incidents. He does tend to play rough (tackling, body slamming, jumping, etc.) but is always the submissive one. But his method of play is not always well received by the Pomeranian, poodle, and even Laborador set. They sometimes give me dirty looks for bringing him there. I grew up with Labs that were very well behaved and when I was looking for a dog, I assumed it would be just as easy raising any kind of dog. I fell in love with Rocky's big face and took him home. He was good for about a month, but eventually started pushing the limits of dominance, I quickly read everything I could about the breed, dogs in general, dominant behavior, aggression, etc. and managed to turn myself into a pretty successful Alpha dog. People are always surprised to see a "pitbull" being so well behaved on a leash and not aggressive :/
I love Rocky and he is tied for being my best friend with the cat.

Rocky ROCKS! :headbang: He's a great looking dog. I have a foster with a patch over his eye. I'm a sucker for that, and brindles! ;)
