Does anyone know of any good pitbulls in the ny area

Postby Rivera » Tue Nov 27, 2007 9:22 pm

I live in orange country monroe ny. And i was wondering if anyone that works at a shelter/rescue has any good young pitbulls that are good with younger children. Every weekend for the past 2 months i been going to a couple of shelters and their have not been any good dogs. Well their was one. But the owner picked it up after he got bailed out of jail..

I am not sure if i should be posting this. So sorry if i am breaking any rules.

A pitbull that is good with children and has a nice temperament. Also a pit that likes to play fetch. A playful dog pretty much that has manners. (doesn't jump up on people .. or play bites if it gets to exited.)

Please realize that NO dog comes to you perfect.

You will have as good of a dog as you want depending on the amount of time YOU invest with it.

A pits dispoition is to be good with children. However, you need to realize they are strong dogs and can easily knock a child over causing harm. This is not the dog's fault if it happens.

Pits have a lot of energy (or most of them do)!

Manners, jumping, play biting, etc are all behaviors that you need to work with.

Good luck!

x2 with Usurpers on this one.. i would suggest taking your time to find the right dog, and be aware no dog comes perfectly trained so you will have to work with any dog you bring home..
