I found this forum while trying to find out what happened with the proposed BSL in GA this week. This site is the first and only place I found that could tell me what happened.
I have two dogs, a red-nose pit mix named Stuie, and a Shepherd mix named Cookie, both female.
Stuie followed me home about four years ago. Her pittie grin and incrediby hyper personality grew on us and we wound up keeping her. She's much calmer now, very definitely the "Boss" over Cookie. Her little bag of tricks includes opening doors and walking Cookie. She also loves to problem solve. Her favorite time of day is bedtime - she snuggles between us - and if we are five minutes later than normal in going to bed she just sits there with her chin on the edge of the mattress, staring at us (she isn't allowed on the bed until we say so).
Cookie was abandoned by our tenants about a year ago. We had evicted them and they opted to leave her behind. We found her three days after they had moved out, one scared 5-month old puppy. She had been abused and still has a few health issues from the cat food they always gave her. She is the biggest teddy bear, and the laziest, dog I have ever seen. Her energy level has greatly increased since we started feeding raw though, so maybe I cannot call her lazy forever.
I am a graphic artist who works from home, and my husband is a special education teacher. We just moved to Georgia from hot and humid central Florida - we definitely like it better here!
I am a learning advocate for pit bulls. Stuie was our first brush with these great dogs and since then, I've had six pit bulls or pit mixes show up at my door, skinny and looking for help. I'm happy to say they all have great homes now with people who understand and love the breed.
