Hi first I wanted to say hello, this is my first time here in your hub .
My favorite breed happens to be the American Pit Bull. The reason I pick this dog is I never liked the bad rap they are given and I am a sucker for an underdog. I've had many different breeds of dogs in my life-time but my very first Pit Bull I got only about 3 years ago. With their reputation for being a fighting dog, people breed them to fight and then once they don't meet their expectations or a bigger dog comes along they are finished with them and throw them away. Our SPCA's and other pounds here in New Orleans are full of Pits and they are the #1 dog being killed. I fell in love with a fawn color 4 month old beauty and I am so happy, she is the sweetest most loving dog I've ever had. She came into our lives while my daughter was pregnant with my first grand-baby and our dog loves that little girl like she is her very own. Every time she comes over my dog can't wipe the huge smile off her face. :) We had a stray cat come and have kittens under our house and our dog became the protective nanny for them. She would have a fit if any other cat came even close to our gate. She is super protective, loyal, loving and the best bed buddy ever! lol We loved her so much we went an Adopted another Pit a little less then a year ago. This time we adopted a black pit, since the SPCA told us that for some reason the dogs that get adopted the least are Pit Bulls and Black Dogs, so we knew she had 2 strikes against her so we wanted to rescue her. We did bring our old dog with us and let them get to know each other first to make sure it was a match. We were lucky, because they seemed to like each other right away. I am so happy we picked the black pit bull, because she is the funnest dog ever! We have so much fun with her, I love to watch her get excited and do her cartoon looking run on the wood floor. lol It's the funniest thing ever. Now that I've got to know a Pit Bull make that 2 Pit Bulls I'll never go back to any other breed unless it's a dog that really needs us. I love that we don't have to get them groomed too. :) Sorry for writing so long, I just LOVE my Pit Bulls!
Have a great day,
