Arrival Story:
the owner brought her in at 7 weeks old, nearly comotose suffering from Parvo virus the breeder/owner finally signed her over to me when she could barely hold her head up a day later . With all the advice of all of the veterinarians at my hospital we saved her. All the other nurses joked that she would be the smalled pit bull in the world because she stated out at 1kg at 7 weeks[ see the picture below 1 day after I adopted her]. She slowly gained weight and health. We took her home on IV fliuds and antibiotic injections. I kept her in our bed under the covers once she was off the IVs . She had diarrhea in the bed:( , butwe fell in love with her so tolerated all her "mistakes" on the sheets that she could not help----at the time I thought I was going to lose my Rhodisian Ridgeback/pitt bull cross to Myasthenia Gravis ,so I thot I'd at least save Petunia's life , but with all of my nursing care he survived 2 courses of aspiration pneumonia and is still alive today and her buddy --they both have the exact same markings on their coats :)

Today she is a very "emotional woman" a --and that she is! she is very motherly and affectionate [great with our new puppy Ferris} but she is the alpha dog of all 5 dogs who share our large dog yard just for them! [some dogs belong to the renter]. She is very obediant to me and sticks close to home . She is cautious around strange people but if I introduce them to her she does good. With other dogs she does good. For example, at the beach where all dogs are allowed off leash and run like the wind.
