Proud of my Pup

Postby AngelLuv » Sat Oct 27, 2012 6:53 pm

Hello. My name is Debi. I recently adopted a Pit Bull from the Humane Society here in Arizona. It was love at first sight. I walked into the kennels and she was the 4th dog to my right and somehow I knew she was the one. Her name was Bella, a 9 month old with a white face and black body. She sat there looking at me waiting for me to put my hand up to the fence. As soon as I did she licked it then pushed her body up against the fence for me to touch her. I had the volunteer take us to the meeting area. Within 10 minutes I was filling out the paperwork to take her home. What a good girl! After being home for about an hour she happily went with me to pick up her doggie door. It was not a short trip and about half way back home I told here she was such an Angel because she did exceptionally well so far! That was when I decided on her new name. So now I call her Angel. I guess you could say she is (a) Bella-Angel. :angel: :angel:

We have been together a week now and I was right on my choice, or maybe it was her that chose me.

The only concern I have had in the first week is when after a couple of days (maybe less) I noticed her gums and skin around her mouth was very red as was around her snout. Around her eyes and her ears were also red. I got real concerned when I saw her exposed skin on the belly was also red. I was feeding her the Science Diet that I was sent home with so I did not figure it was food allergy. So I got to thinking about the water. I won't drink the tap water at my house but I gave it to her. I won't even make my coffee and rarely cook with it with it! So I washed out her water bowl and put the water that I bring in from the filtered water station. She readily drank almost a half a gallon. The biggest surprise to me was that within minutes the redness around her snout and inside her mouth was turning back to a healthy pink! The rest followed shortly after. :nana:

Welcome! Thank you for adopting and giving her a chance! I hope you enjoy it here. Please check out the "2 weeks, give em a break!" thread in training section. You are in the hunnymoon phase right now, and you want to set her up for success. Take things slow :)

Welcome to PBF, and thanks for adopting :thumbsup:
I wouldn't worry about the water, but I would take her in for a vet check. Here's a link to the thread that many of us find useful when bringing a new dog into the home. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
