Just adopted a pit

Postby cathyd » Wed Nov 06, 2013 6:40 pm

My name is Cathy and my husband and I adopted a 7 year old female american staffordshire terrier/american bull dog mix from a local no-kill shelter two weeks ago. I used to volunteer at the shelter and developed a bond with Matilda over the 3 years I walked dogs there. She is a super sweet dog but doesn't realize she weighs close to 80 lbs! She was in the shelter for 5 years before we brought her home. Due to her long stay at the shelter, she has a lot of behavior issues that we are trying to correct, some successful, some not. I will be posting questions in the other forums once I am able to. Another point, we already had a 13 year old beagle that has been with our family since she was 8 weeks old. We "fostered" Matilda for two weekends with her going back to the shelter during the week to help get our Charlotte accustomed to the new, much larger, dog. So far, all I can say is they tolerate each other. :)

If someone can tell me how to upload a picture I will be happy to.

Hello,

Yes, I never received a response to my intro, but just kept trying and one day, I was able to access the rest of the groups. Unfortunately, I haven't received any responses from my post on behavior suggestions. Thanks!
