I registered tonight. Little bit of background.....Chyna 3yrs black/white mixed breed non Bully girl, HS adopted, Shela 2.5 yrs Aussie mix girl, HS adopted. Kobi 2.5yrs Red Nosed Brindle AmStaff Fostered then adopted from HS. Chester 6.5yrs Tri Color Beagle, prone to seizures, Fostered then adopted from HS (Humane Society) Jamall,Diablo,&Simmon male neutered felines from HS. One big happy family living in a small town
Our local Humane Society has very good programs in place for rescue/foster but as we all know the Bull breeds have a difficult time in cages with the canine closeness and the human contact limited. I will not go on about that. Now I will tell you about INDIA, picked up from a back yard tied to a tree, no food, no water....owner taken to lockup in another state and roomate did not want her. India was probably bred in her first year, she is a small 36lbs, tight black/white American Pit Bull. Staff at HS loved her but no one tried to adopt her in June or July and the HS got full and I decided to Foster her to save her. She has been with our entire human and above listed family since then. I love her, she is gentle, quiet, playful, very good with all of the dogs, not trusted with the feline group, her prey drive kicks in when they run. Obsessed with chasing sunlight spots reflected on the wall and will look at a flashlite longingly until you give in and turn it on so she can go in circles to chase the light.
I have been wondering what she would do with a Disco Ball
. Seriously, I have been practicing clicker training with her and will run down all of her knowledge if anyone is interested. Now for the problem:
It is not India, it is my first adopted AmStaff Kobi who is my daughters soul mate and our first experience with a Bull breed. After almost two years with her I am still reading everything I can to understand her. Kobi without any real reason has initiated an attack on India 4 times in 5 months. The first three were broken up quickly with Kobi sustaining surface puncture damage. The fourth was last week at 6 am, I was putting on my shoes, India was staring at the wall looking for light beams, Kobi and Chester was doing their morning wrestling routine (the beagle LOVES Kobi). They wrestled past me, then India and Kobi just turned and attacked her at the shoulder. I was home alone. Bull breeds do not quit when the drive is on....
Kobi is fine, India had lacerations to her front leg but has healed up, loved up. My home is not safe for her, I can not take her back to HS (love her too much). The Director of HS is trying to find a rescue but I need a miracle....she would make a great companion. House trained, crate trained, responds to commands and I can go on and on. She can be seen at www.hsop.org
, look under Our Pets, she is on the last pages. Her pictures are from when she came in skinny and have not been updated. She is plumper and glossy. Get this out to the community. She still belongs to the Humane Society so anyone wanting to love and be loved will have to qualify. I will deliver her.
