I'm Emilee and I'm from SC and a proud mom of two pitties
I had never been around pits until I met someone at a dog park, who would become my best friend, who had a 2 yr old female pit that I absolutely fell in love with. She changed my entire outlook and perception on the breed. I now have a 2 yr old male light chocolate brindle, who is the first love of my life. I found a post online from a woman that had 6 week old puppies under her shed and needed people to come get them. I was recovering from a bad car wreck and was learning how to walk so my friend went and got him. He was the dirtiest, big bellied boy! I got him all cleaned up and healthy while he stayed by my side and lifted my spirits while I recovered. He use to ride in a sling bag on my walker
Three weeks ago I came across another add for 8 week old puppies that needed a home. I'm not a fan of BYB, but if a puppy needs help it doesn't matter where it came from. I drove an hour to get her. When we get there, there were 7 pits on 4 foot chains all around her trailer. My heart broke. The lady brings out a tiny all bones girl. My heart dropped at the sight of her! It took me and a friend over an hour to get all the fleas off her tiny body. This was later at night so the next morning she went to the vet. She was 2.2 lbs at 8 weeks, very anemic, filled with every worm and parasite, eat up with coccidia, thin hair with bald spots, and very malnourished. 10 days of meds later she was parasite and worm free and no longer anemic! After two weeks she was then 4.5 lbs! She's looking so much better and full of life and spunk. She's a great eater and is learning command fast. Her hair loss was from the fleas and is clearing up. We are now facing another issue. She's "knuckling over" so I'm looking for any advice one might have for me!
Finding the love of a pitbull was one of the greatest things I've found. Their love is unconditional. I am without a doubt the love of my dogs' life
They are too smart for their own good and can sometime outsmart me
. Im new to forums so I'm looking forward to reading people's experiences, getting advice, and just learning and sharing with people who have the same passion as I do
