I am so blessed by my pitbull babies! Just reminiscing back I can remember getting my first pitbull (Choppa) and yea I have to say I was a little bit nervous because we were hearing so many negative things about them, but I was drawn to him and just had to have him. Not long after having him he got sick & vet was almost 100% it was parvo. We didn't know if he would make it or not, but he pulled through and that was a bonding experience for sure. Choppa was and still is amazing and taught us so much, and I knew right then we had found our breed of dog that we just click with. We had owned lots of dogs before, but we had never owned a dog with such a heart of gold and so intelligent it was unbelieveable! I am very thankful that we gave this breed a chance. We will always own pitbulls & they are so not what the media makes them out to be. After Choppa got about a year old we decided on getting him a play mate so we looked around and found Kadie and she was just so sassy yet very sweet. They are best buds now. Raising the two of them was so much fun! Never a dull moment with Kadie and Choppa LOL, they couldn't be anymore like kids than they are LOL! They produced a litter of 10 beautiful pups. Everyone said Kadie would want to be left alone when she gave birth, but that was not the case. When it was time she climbed up in the recliner by my husband to have her pups. He realized she was in labor & took her into a big closet in a spare bedroom & he helped her deliver all 10 pups. They were perfect & all of them did just fine. When it come to finding homes for the pups we didn't know just how hard it was to find good people, but it was awful. You wouldn't believe the people to come up and bluntly tell you that they fight their dogs & also there were the not so obvious idiots, like the ones carrying around huge amounts of cash that you knew something wasn't right about. We didn't sell them to make money though, it wasn't even about that. It was about them finding good homes. So we took our time and screened everybody that got a pup. Two of our pups are on my pup pals on here Zeus and CJ. My friend looked at the pup to pick her one out & he ended up choosing her LOL! My other friend was puppy sitting CJ and I saw how much he loved her and I made the best decision that I could have and I told her that she was his new mommy. We ended up getting Kadie spayed because we realized how hard it was to find good homes and didn't dare want to do that again, instead we had rather just get one from a shelter and help out there. We wanted a pup that would be a part of Kadie and Choppa, but at least there are enough babies out there that they had that who knows we may end up with one a part of them one day. We almost lost Kadie when she got spayed, but luckily baby girl made it through. Going through raising Choppa and Kadie and having pups was such an experience for us. Just when we thought we had finally learned everything there was to learn about pitbulls along came Chevy. We surely wasn't looking for another dog, but there he was on the side of the road looking lost, scared and hungry. Of course no way we could have just left him there. We knew he would hesitate to come to us not knowing us and it took three long hours of disappointment until we finally got him. Our initial plans were to get him healthy and try to find him a good home, but nope it didn't work that way at all LOL! Just seeing him bond to us and knowing he had been through alot but through it all he could still learn to trust and love us was just heartwarming. So no way we could let him go, he had done stolen our hearts. I really wish more good people would take the opportunity to open their hearts and give a home to this wonderful breed. We love Choppa, Kadie and Chevy with all of our heart and they are absolutely amazing! We are blessed to have them in our life!
