Hi everyone! My name is Alison. I live in CT. I recently adopted a pit bull mix. Her name is Gracie. She is about 10 months old. She was a street dog in the projects of Hartford. She was apparently abused as she has only one eye. The story from the ACO in Hartford is that some guy hit Gracie in the face with something (not sure what) & that is what caused her injury. She also has a scar across the top of her head from a skull fracture - which I am sure went along with the eye injury! Poor doggie! But, she has now been living in the lap of luxury in beautiful suburban Connecticut. :thumbsup:

I have 4 children - ages 9, 7, 5, & nearly 3. They just adore Gracie. :inlove:

Gracie is my first pit bull. I grew up with Boxers. I also had a Cocker Spaniel. I am slowly learning the incredible prejudice against & misrepresentation of the breed. It's really sad.

Well, I am happy to be here.... I'll probably lurk mostly, but I love to read what others have to say!

p.s. how do I post pictures? Can I upload them from my hard drive to this forum? Thanks!

Thanks! I think she is pretty adorable myself! Every day I think about the plight of the thousands of unwanted dogs & cats in this country and I think Miss Gracie is pretty lucky to have made it! Apparently, she was an hour away from euthanasia. :sad:

Thanks for the warm welcomes!
