My names Tevita, I'm 19 years old and I'm going to be the owner of a half English staff half pit bull puppy that I've named Atticus. I've been a long time dog lover yet have never owned a dog before making this my first. I've heard about the bad rap a lot of these types of dogs get and have always believed that any dog is capable of being a loving companion regardless of breed.
Atticus is currently one week old and has, what I think, is a blue brindle coat (correct me if I'm wrong).
I'm looking to get as educated about the breed as possible before Atticus leaves his litter in 7 weeks time and hope that this forum, as well as many dog training and pit bull breed related books, will help me in raising him properly.
