Arrival Story:
I was looking for a pit to do therapy work with and found a wonderful breeder in Flint, MI at Blue Coral Kennels. Apollo was the only puppy left of the litter and was 4 months old already. I walked out in the back yard where he was playing with his brother that they were keeping to show. It was love at first sight. He was so beautiful and soooo sweet. He came home with me that night after a long contract and some checking by the breeder as it should be. They breed for conformation and weight pull but most important health and temperment come first. They have some of the most beautiful pits I have ever seen and they are all sweet as pie. Apollo is now 10 months old and 92 pounds. He is a beautiful example of a pit not only in looks but in temperment.

Bio:
Apollo is a sweet dog with a wonderful temperment. He lives with an 8 yr old Springer, a 2 yr old chihuahua, and a 4 month old female American Pit Bull Terrier. He is very gentle and loving with them all and is in training to become a Therapy Dog. This breed gets such a bad rap in the media. I firmly believe there is no such thing as a bad dog just bad owners. Pits are wonderful, loving, loyal companions. Of course there are some shady humans out there that think fighting them and making a quick buck are the cool thing to do. Its not cool and this breed is not here to make you think you look tough. They have feelings and need to be treated with respect and love. If you do not have the time and commitment to train this breed please do not get one. There are to many in shelters and rescues and in the wrong hands already. These babies did not ask to be here. Dog fighting is awful. It is not a sport its plain torture. Apollo is everything good in the breed. His temperment is wonderful and I could not ask for a smarter more loyal dog. Of course I have worked with him daily to make sure he continues to learn and remembers all that is taught. There is a pitbull movie on this site that says it all best. When you go to this site look on the left side and look for CH 6 pitbull movie and click on it. Its worth watching but some parts are graphic. http://www.apbtconformation.com/ Sadly Apollo passed away on Sept 2,2009 do to his bad joints. He fell and shattered his shoulder and because his hip on the same side had already had surgery we were unable to fix it and had to have him put to sleep. We are heartbroken and although I held him in my arms when he took his last breath I still see him looking at me with the goofy I didn't do it face. He was everything a pit bull should be and more. He will forever have a place in my heart.

Its been almost 3 weeks since my surgery. The doctors says I looks great and I can take my walks agains. Well, short walks anyway. I am sooooo happy. Mom has been a bit stressed out cuz some stupid lady said I was aggressive to her and mom had to get checked out. I hasn't seen this lady in a year and I have never been mean to anyone but ya know how it goes with us pibbles. The lady works for the vets office I used to go to but they were awful there so mom takes me to a good vet and has for a year now. Mom had to get statements from my vet and have me temperament tested 7 days after my surgery. Boy was she and my vet mad. I of course passed my test even though I was in pain and still having trouble walking good. Sometimes I don't understand humans. They let the woman down the street abuse her pibble and make him mean (not his fault) and they let the womans little dog attack me and I do nothing back but yet they say I am mean. HUH!!!! Anyways, I am doing better and my leg doesn't hurt so bad anymore. I gets my massages and stuff and I hope this is my last surgery ever. I can't wait till I can run with my brothers and sister again. That will be tons of fun:)

 

BAD DAYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!

Yesterday was bad day for me. Since I got surgery mom has to take me out in the front yard to potty cuz right now our backyard is muddy and mom is afraid I will slip. Anyway, she took me out on my leash and I was just about to pee when the irresponsible neighbors schipperke came running at me. Mom looked fast and of course the owner was not there and the dog had no leash. Mom said lets go so I started to walk towards the house but I am slow because of my hip surgery. The Schipperke ran up behind me and bit me on my bad leg. Mom was yelling at but it would not stop and finally she kicked her shoe off at it and got me in the house. She checked me out and it didn't break the skin but now I won't use my bad leg again. Mom was mad. I mean really mad. Then she went to take the others out to the back yard to potty and the irresponsible neighbors pit bull was loose to. We all feel bad for the pit bull because they leave him outside 24/7 no matter what the weather and he looks so sad. Sometimes he goes for days with no food or water. Anyhow, the cops came but they didn't do anything as usual. Mom said if the little demon dog bites me again she will take it to the shelter herself. I am glad my mom and dad love us and take care of us. I am glad they always make sure we are safe and secure.
On a better note I spent all day today laying on my mattress in the livingroom with Levi. We chewed a bone together and took a nap. Then mom laid with me for a while and rubbed my belly and ears. That is always the best.
