Hi there! My name is Kelly, I'm a 22 year old juice enthusiast/freelance model living in Long Beach, CA. About a month ago I bought a puppy from a woman on craigslist advertising for "English Staffordshire Puppies" for only $50. He was a little less than 4 months old and weighed 25 lbs and the lady hadn't got him any shots or anything, got that all taken care of. My puppy's name is Sir Basil Robert Peabody, or Basil for short. My first puppy ever! He's the sweetest most calm lil guy ever. such a lover and a player. He greatly enjoys playing with my roommates 2 year old Siberian Husky (she was a runt and a female so she only weighs 25 lbs... basil has now surpassed her weight haha), they can go at it all day long.
Sir Basil is now about 5 months old and i weighed him last week he was at 36 lbs, I'm assuming he's nearing 40 at this point and time. I'm here because i really want to know what breed my puppy is. He's giant so it makes me think he's not just a pit bull or staffy. his paws are huge! I'm also just interested in having a place to come and discuss stories/issues i have with my pup as he's the first dog i've ever owned on my own. I think doing really well though! he's essentially totally potty trained, waits by the door when he needs to go out, he's only peeing in my roommates rooms to mark territories (I'm assuming, its rare anyway) they both have pets of their own. he's already learned a few tricks (sit, paw, lay down) and follows me everywhere and won't run away from me.
i don't know much about being a pit bull owner and i know it comes with some trial and tribulation so I'm basically just a noob hoping to get some knowledge on this special breed!
the day i got Basil
jolene and basil
basil has light green/blue eyes, they're like the color of a slice of a green olive if that makes any sense haha. he has a blue fawn coat, its really silver actually and sometimes looks purple in the sun. but he has a red nose and pink lips and a pink belly. he's absolutely gorgeous. i can't wait to meet other awesome pups!
