Hello from Ohio!!

Postby jojo22 » Wed Feb 27, 2008 2:44 pm

Hi,

My name is Joe. I live in N.E. Ohio with my wife, 5 children and 6 dogs.
My children range from 7 years old to 13 months. My dogs are like little children. We have 3 pit bulls, 2 beagle/basset mixes who are sisters from the same litter, and a small min pin. Our pit bulls are 2, 1 and 12 weeks old.

I fell in love with pits when I was single and didn't have any children. I rescued a retired fighter when I saw her tied up outside with no food or water and a dog house that was 2 sizes too small. I went to the door and asked if I could buy the dog and give her a better life. I was told that for $15 I could "Take the bitch" and do whatever I wanted with her. Me and Sasha where a great team for about a year. I took extra precaution to keep her away from other dogs and only walk her at night to reduce the chance of any problems. Well one night on our walk someone let their rott out to pee without a leash. She started growling at Sasha and came over and bit her. After the fight ended (I used a water hose in her mouth as a breaking stick is "proof of fighting" where I live) the rotts owner called animal control and both dogs where put down.

I went several years with no dogs due to living in apartments and such. When we moved into our current house the landlord gave us the OK for whatever pets we wanted as long as they didn't destroy the house. My wife was terrified of pits due to all the media. I finally changed her views when one of our neighbors got a small female staffy. She had no idea what type of dog it was so after I played with the dog a few times I took our children over to play with her. My wife asked what type of dog it was so we could look into getting one since she was so good with children.

So we got a pit!!! And the love has grown from their. Our dogs have changed the views of many in our area with their good behavior and loving disposition.

With that being said here are some pics!!!

:thumbsup:

We don't crate most of the dogs. The 2 beagle/bassets have proven to need it since they potty at night, but all the other dogs are out. Three of them sleep in bed with us.
