Newbie Puppy/Pitbull Owners

Postby pelorick » Wed Jul 30, 2008 6:33 pm


We recently rescued a puppy that we found in front of our house in Phoenix, AZ about two months ago. We turned him into animal care and control because he looked like he could belong to someone (well fed, nice coat, not aggressive, etc). However, he didn’t have a collar, so we think that someone abandoned him. We have been told that he could be a full-bred blue pitbull (approx. 4 months old at the time we found him), but we don’t know and don’t care if he is mixed. Because we found him, we were listed as finder/adopters - which gave us priority over anyone else to adopt him. We had inactively been looking for a dog for a long time, but never found the right one. A little less than one week at the pound and nobody came forward as the rightful owner. We believe that things happen for a reason and felt like adopting him was the right thing to do because this pup found us. We found out the day that we picked him up that he was going to be euthanized had we not rescued him. It was then that we decided to name him Chance.

The day we brought him home from the pound, he was neutered. Additionally, he came home with kennel cough and a parasite. We took him to several vet appointments and the little pup is back to full health. We have had him for two months and have enjoyed every minute of it. He is a very sweet, affectionate, and playful dog. He hasn’t shown any signs of aggression towards humans or other dogs. We are looking forward to a life-long companionship with him as a new family member.

He's most definitely the color blue, but the American Pit Bull Terrier and American Staffordshire Terrier are not color-breeds. So, no such thing as a Blue Pit Bull breed - many ignorant people will try to argue this with you. (Also, no such thing as Blue-Nosed Pit Bull Breed or Red-Nosed Pit Bull Breed. - if you haven't heard these names yet, you will- the nose color is simply the nose color.)

Did I make any sense? Its late, I may not. If not hopefully someone can explain it better.

ANYHOW, I don't care what you call that pup, he is the cutest dern thing I've ever seen!!! How precious :inlove: I want to squeeze him and kiss him and theive him. I joke, I joke sorta. muwhahahahaha!
