Hi, I'm Carmen
This Is Carmen, One Of My Pit Bulls
I'm making this page about my pet Pit Bull, Carmen, because she's a breed that a lot of people are afraid of. I want to maybe get rid of some of the myths about her breed.
Carmen just turned 4 years old this year. She was bred by a reputable breeder of Pit Bulls. We don't have her papers, but we wish we did. She's beautiful, and very much the breed standard. My husband insists that he wants to breed her, because she would probably make some beautiful puppies, but we have to find a male that's just as exceptional as she is to do the job properly.
How we got Carmen
We got Carmen from one of my sister-in-law's friends. She was not raising her in a good way, and was about to get taken to an Animal Shelter. We already had one dog, but we agreed to take on another one. We wanted to save her. To this day, we have never regretted our decision, and we probably never will. I don't think I've ever seen a more loving dog.
I love Carmen because...
She's gorgeous, she has a lot of patience with my son, and she's just an all around great pet. She just loves to give everyone hugs and kisses, and she's as protective of the people in the house, as she is the other animals in the house. She has her mischevious moments, but what pet doesn't.

What's Your Opinion?
I think any breed of dog can be mean if it's not raised properly. Yes, Pit Bulls are somewhat dog aggressive, but the were bred specifically not to be people aggressive. They used to be used for fighting, so you didn't want your dog to bite you when you were trying to break up a fight. Besides that, she's great with my son.
Is it the owners or the breed?

This was an interesting blog post I found. It talks about a "Pit Bull" mix, that nobody wanted.

And another thing...
I wouldn't trade my Pit Bull for anything in the world. She's a great pet, and she's great with my other Pit Bull, and my cat.

She Went Over The Rainbow Bridge
On March 21, 2011, my Carmen went over the rainbow bridge. We had her for five years, and we all wish it would have been longer, but cancer takes over, and it takes over fast.
Thanks for all the love you gave us for five years Carmen, and we will miss you. In honor of her passing, this page is going to stay just the way it was on the day I created it for her. Rest in Peace "Baby Girl."
