New Pitty Mom!


New Pitty Mom!

Postby mgraves » Sat Mar 24, 2007 4:36 pm

Hi there!
I am a new mom of a 13 week old pitty named Sadie.
It is funny how we ended up with her as my husband said that we would never have a dog until our cats passed away.

I have been volunteering at our local animal shelter since June 2006. I figured since I couldn't have a dog or my own (we have two cats) I would go there and get my fix without the responsibility. My husband has never once been to the shelter since I have been volunteering so one Sunday I had to go in for some training and he went with me. I told him to just look at the cats and dogs while he waited for me. He walked up and down the kennels feeding and talking to the dogs, yet I kept seeing him in front of Sadie's door.

As we all know, these dogs are very smart and at 10 weeks she was coming to the door and sitting for treats. We left that day and I heard words that I thought I would never hear..... " I could really see having her as our pup!" Of course trying to play it cool I said that I would look into it on Tuesday when they were open and see if she had gone home with the people that had adopted her. So Tuesday came and I heard that she had gone home with her new people on Monday after she was spayed. I thought, no problem, the door is now open so we will go back together and look again. About 15 minutes later I got another call that she had NOT been picked up and she was ours if we wanted. We went down, did the paper work and 1 hour later we were the proud parents of sweet sadie. Not only is she our first dog, but a pitty at that. We are doing everything we can to get her socialized with people of all shapes, sizes and ages, plus really working on the training and her dog-dog skills. Puppy Kindergarten.... HERE WE COME!!!

My friend told me about this website so here I am. I would love any advice that you can give me. We are in this for the long haul and are going to do everything we can to make sure she has the best life possible.
