Just found out about this site from a friend and I am pumped!
It is awesome to see that there are so many people out there w/ genuine concern and care for this breed. I get so tired of all of the negativity on other forums, the news, etc....
Anyway, here is a pic of my two babies and there story.
Left is Jeffers and right is Athena.
I adopted both dogs from a rescue here in Houston. I initially looked on their website for a white, stocky pitbull. But when I read the story on Athena, my heart broke and I immediatly said that if she was nice I was taking her home. When she was nine months old her old owner came home drunk and beat her over the head w/ a board b/c she wouldn't stop barking. This fractured her skull and ruptured her eye, causing the vets to remove it and close it perm. I also got a copy of all of her medical records and she was infested w/ several kinds of worms. She sat in this shelter for about 2 years and I have now had her for about a year and a half. When I first saw her, she was somewhat timid, but who can blame her. Now she is one of the best pets and companions I could ask for!

Well, I only intended on getting one dog b/c I lived in an upstairs apt at the time. But when I heard she was caged w/ her "boyfriend" Jeffers, I wanted to see him as well. He greeted me by standing on his hind legs backwards and licking me in the face. Can you say SOLD!!!!

The first day I could only take Athena home b/c Jeffers had yet to get snippy snipped. I didn't pick Jeffers up until 3 days later, and let me tell you, this showed how much they really love each other. Athena was very mellow, but the day I brought Jeffers home, she was the happiest ever. They both played for hours!

Now that is the best reward I could have asked for. They are awesome to me, my friends, family, and even my 9 year old cat Guera. And yes, they are all spoiled rotten! My queen size bed is not big enough for all of us, but we manage! :thumbsup:

Thanks everyone!

Quick question...
I have been trying to post in other threads and it won't let me. Only in this intro part.
Is there something else I need to do?
