Hi everyone!

Greetings from Nebraska! I first learned about this site in a recent uproar on another board that has nothing to do with pit bulls. I decided to lurk for a bit and read up on the topics and decided to stay. LOL My name is Mandy and I've been married for 6 years to my husband, Rich. We have 3 kids...5 yrs, 2 yrs, and 1 yr. He also has two boys, 11 and 8, from a previous marriage.

We got our first pit bull from a guy my husband worked with. She was about 5 I think at that time. We also had 2 other dogs, so we thought it would be a great addition since she was in need of a home. It lasted about 3 weeks. She started a fight with our female Newfoundland and then came after me, even though I had just came outside and was across the deck from her. After she latched on to my ankle, I decided she had to go. Luckily, she found a home with no young children and no other animals. A month later we got an American Staffordshire Terrier. We named him Bowzer.

I can clearly tell they were not the same breed of pits based on the difference in size and weight. We purchased Bowzer from Lion Heart Kennels in Montana. Apparently the parents do weight pulling. I just remember thinking they had huge chests!

He's now 4 years old and doing great. Loves to run and dotes on the kids. He always has kisses for them.

I'll try to get some updated pics of him taken soon. I never seem to take pics of him for some reason, not sure why though.

Anyways, I hope you'll let me stay even though I'm from the "other" board! :))

Welcome atteberry, just to confuse you, the American Staffordshire Terrier is the same breed as the American Pit Bull Terrier (depending on who you ask). You can have an AKC American Staffordshire Terrier registered as a UKC and/or ADBA American Pit Bull Terrier. In fact, the same dog can champion in both the AKC as an Amstaff and the UKC as an APBT. My Savvy's sire is both a UKC Grand Champion American Pit Bull Terrier and an AKC Champion American Staffordshire Terrier.

Can't wait to see the pics!

Oh Dawn you just had to confuse a girl more eh? :))

Bowzer is AKC but we never sent in the paperwork for him. I still have his papers but I didn't see the need to register him since we got him fixed.

Welcome!

Sorry about your first bad experience with the female! I think its neat that you were willing to give the breed another chance, unlike so many people.

Can't wait to see some pics!!
