WA..Looking for a young pit bull

Why buy from a breeder when there are plenty of homeless pups in shelters???

WA..Looking for a young pit bull

Postby pitbullgrl » Tue Mar 09, 2010 6:19 pm

Hey everyone, a good friend of my husband's is looking for a male pit bull puppy. my husband talked to him about me finding him a rescue instead of looking at local breeders. the one thing is though is he wants to have a pup with cropped ears, he is open to adopting a pre-cut dog or taking an uncropped and taking it to a vet. he's done all the research. he just prefers the cropped look and there's no arguing with someone's preference. he wants the dog to be young, not a half grown or adult dog. I'm not sure if rescues allow adopters to crop or not but i thought i'd put feelers out and see if something's available and where to direct him to. I can atest that he will take good care of the dog. oh and cat friendly is a must as he has a cat.

If he would be willing to adopt an older puppy, we have two 10 month old males with cropped ears.

To add to Violet's suggestions, in addition to her rescue there's a number of local ones including Bullseye. Just google 'Pit bull rescue seattle' & you'll get a bunch.

I have a fabulous 5 month old red fawn with white flash but he will NOT be cosmetically altered. There is no reason for it - it's a breed that can be shown cropped or uncropped. If one is not showing AND it's a rescue dog, there is no need. If he's interested in NOT cropping, Amos is a nice prospect.

Good on them for rescue, no matter their preference of ear style.

Yes, unfortunately i don't think he could be swayed regarding the ears, I am hoping he will show interest in one of the dogs that is already cropped, the two dogs violet has suggested are gorgeous dogs that I can't believe could be passed on, i'm really hoping he'll go for them even though they're a bit older than what he was talking about. Regardless if I find a dog or not for him, he will get a dog and it will be cropped, so I'd rather get involved and have him save a dog then go out shopping for one and support our crappy breeders around here, they're a dime a dozen around these parts. He will take good care of the dog, he has a son that will enjoy taking the dog for walks, plus being a good friend of my husband's I will see the dog on a fairly regular basis. and that could even go into whatever contract there is that I will check up on the dog.

I guess the alternative is finding a GOOD breeder within decent distance of Wenatchee, but I have never looked for one so wouldn't know where to start (i just know of many bad ones) I'd rather not go that route but like I said he's gonna get a dog not matter what.

I hope he goes for one of the cropped dogs Violet has. 10 months really isn't that old. Just old enough to be through the really annoying puppy stuff IMO. Then again I think puppies are cute, but I don't ever want to have one again lol

I personally think 5-7 mos is the perrrrfect dog age. I hope he is interested as well!
