Hi everyone -
Brienne (the Beauty) is snoring at my feet at the moment. My parents had a dog during my later childhood, but she's my first (I've always had cats, and still do). She came into my life via the CEO of the nonprofit my girlfriend and I teach for - she's an angel who rescues/rehabilitates strays. She found Brienne in October of '11 tied up to a stop sign near her house with a shoestring looking like this:
She came home with us two days ago having been transformed into this:
She's taking VERY well to being the only dog in the household but is confused as to why the two 7-year-old cats with no dog experience don't like her very much, but since she has cat experience she's gentle and doesn't chase. It's a great situation and we're thrilled to get to the business of spoiling her!
I'm sure she's at least mostly pit, probably APBT if my googling is accurate? She's 50 pounds on the nose and LOVES to please. No idea what else, if anything, may be in there - obviously the initial "owner" is not available for comment, which is good, as I have several "comments" for him. Our boss, though, who rescued her, is a saint, and has placed many happy critters (and keeps many more!).
