Hope to soon be a foster mom

Postby StephNMurph » Fri Jan 21, 2011 2:41 pm

Hi all! My name is Stephanie and I'm 22 yrs old from Milwaukee WI. I do not own a APBT, but I am in the process of becoming a foster parent for one. I currently own an Olde English Bulldogge named Murphy. He is 1. We got him from a rescue last January. I fell in love with bully breeds as soon as I got him. He is an amazing dog and while I thought about getting another OEB, my mind soon turned to helping out pitbulls.

At the end of 2010, Lucy, a pitbull that was used for fighting, was found in a lagoon in Milwaukee. Her story made me so upset and angry that these wonderful dogs were being treated this way. I also learned that a majority of dogs in our local animal control center were pitbulls. I knew then that I wanted to help this breed. I am working with a local rescue that works to end dogfighting in our city and also rescue's pitties and pit mixes.

I have done lots of research on the APBT, but feel since I may be working with some high maintenance, sick, injured, and even abused dogs, I would like a support system. That is why I hope to continue learning from this forum.

I am a childcare teacher. I live with my boyfriend Jon, who is a home theater installer. I am currently in school part time getting my degree in Early Childhood Education. Currently, I have no time for interests other than school , work, dogs and working on remodeling our house.


Here are some pics of my Murphy:
