New from Ohio

Postby geckogirly » Wed Mar 25, 2009 2:19 pm

Hello everyone 8)

I am 28, and from Southern Ohio. I have one dog, his name is Newton. Newton is a bully breed mix. I'll start off with a couple pics :))

Newton's Rescue Pic:

Me and Newt on Day of Adoption:

Newton is about about 1.5 years (approximate). I met Newton while visiting my vet friend up in Michigan. She's a member of the Mid Michigan Boxer Rescue, and was fostering Newton when I visited. I had been wanting to adopt for some time, but had been waiting to find the right dog. After spending time with Newton (including a training class), I went back home and thought about whether or not I should adopt. Three weeks later I brought him home!

Newton is a sweetie, but has seperation anxiety and some other problems. We are currently in a beginner clicker training class. I hope to some day try agility with him as he is extremely athletic...but first things first! Newt seems to love the water, never a complaint during bath time! I can't wait to let him try out the pond this summer roflmao

I am very new to pits and have already met some opposition, and it just makes me want to fight for them more. It really upsets me when people judge Newt b/c he looks like a pit. I am near Cincy Ohio--I'm sure you guys have heard all the craziness going on around here. Anyway...seeking support from other bully breed lovers!

My other interests include reptiles--I breed several species of Rhacodactylus. I also have an EXTREMELY spoiled Bearded Dragon named Dewi. My occupation is a Chemistry Lab Tech.

Look forward to meeting all of you and discussing our loving companions!

Newton is gorgeous! We look forward to hearing more about you and him, and maybe helping you through some of those separation issues so you can get going in agility (and maybe Dock Diving!)

(we also have some gecko fans here, so you may make more friends than you expect!)
