They told me to give him a day, so I did..and I told them how he reacted and they just figure it'd be safer on my personal dogs and less stressing.


Des, is this your first pit bull pull?

I also mentioned on another board that intros were rushed and this dog needed some time to decompress.....

I think that it's unfair to the dog that he was given a day after being sprung from the shelter, to acclamate to his new environment.

And he hasn't been Temp Tested or had an evaluation. Thats pretty basic stuff....

I know your heart was in the right place, maybe you can still get some help....Have you contacted SOL?

arnt you supposed to be fostering a puppy and english bulldog? So what are you going to do with him..? Take him back to the shelter? Do what syris said take him back ADOPT him yourself then find a foster home?!

I've seen quite a few folks reccommend that adult foster dogs not have any interaction with resident dogs at all for at least two weeks, and then only gradual interactions for several weeks afterward, like through baby gates and x-pens and possibly brief leashed encounters outside of the home.

I know that rushing things can really set a dog up for failure. This doesn't have to be a death sentence for Pepsi if you take a few steps back and start over, provided you're able to do that. It can be a lot of work integrating a new adult pit bull foster into a home, and it's understandable that not everyone can do it.


agreed. rg is right on.
intros take time and patience
especially above all for a dog
that has been shelter stressed.
and intros on neutral territory
are a good idea before home intros.

As I had stated in my previous post why I canno't take him in as my own adoption. And I was going to foster the EB, but he has been put into an EB rescue..and the puppy i'm not sure what happened to it, I never got contacted back after several attempts.

Yea, it's my first pull..the first foster was found as a stray and she got a home..but this is my first time dealing with a rescue.

yeah I figured.....Please don't do it again until you know exactly what your doing and you have the knowledge and resources to pull a dog from the shelter, foster him with you, interview prospects, do home checks, vet checks,,, etc etc etc.....and it may take a LONG time to find a home for pit bulls, as you well know.

There is SO much information on this forum and the other 20 gazillion boards that I am just baffled by this quiet frankly.

I think shes already made her mind up about that one!!
Rescuing is stress there is no way around that. I feel you may have bitten off more than you can chew at this point and thats too bad because you have been given lots of good advice on different ways to deal with it and you are very headstrong that bringing him back is the only option. You were given advice about slow intros by several people but choose to listen to a Boston Terrier rescue instead. Please next time you want to surf petfinder and babysit a shelter pup and pretend you are his saviour for a day, leave us out of it! I was really hoping for this gorgeous boy that his sad days cause by peoples poor choices were over. I thought you were really going to try, but your excuses prove that you are not ready for what you are trying to do.
