To Play!!! Tug, chase, frisbee, hide and seek, I love to play with my humans.
Harnesses, Jackets, Boots
Tug, anything you can tug!
People Food - preferably some sort of meat. I also really like cider donuts
Barking out my age and Marching. I know a lot of tricks.
My parents were planning on buying a puppy from a reputable breeder. Mom was convinced they wouldn't find a dog at at the shelter, but often checked the web page of a local humane society just in case a dog that matched her criteria came along. The day after she saw my write up and picture, they brought me home and took themselves off a puppy waiting list.
Since they adopted me at 8 months old I was already past most of the chewing stage, had already been house trained, and they didn't have to guess at what my personality would be. My happy, friendly, I love everyone personality just shone through!
I am big on kissing and over the top on giving affection. I just love it when people say gimme a kiss! I always aim for the lips, after all that is what they are for! I am lucky to live where I do, because most people in the area don't seem to know what a pit bull is. By the time someone has asked what my breed is, I have already shown how much I love him/her. How can you reject the love as pure and innocent as the loyal love of a dog?
I am also a Canine Good Citizen; I've had my CGC since Sept. 2003! I was at a dog party in Shelburne where there was a booth where you could take your CGC. I did very well, even when they went to touch my feet! (The first time my Mom tried to clip my nails she saw I was really worried about having my feet touched - she taught me that having your feet touched is okay. This makes me feel confident about having my nails clipped, and helped me pass my CGC.)
Another hobby of mine is agility. I am very good at it, but my human could be better. I have brought her to classes, and since we have taken so many classes we are now going to seminars. I have brought her to two, and it has really helped. I am sure we will be attending many more in the future! As you can see from one of my pictures, I have gotten a NADAC qualifying ribbon in a novice course - which means I ran it within a given amount of time, and I performed all obstacles safely. I have also gotten second place in a novice tunnelers course - I just love tunnels! Tunnels are my favorite obstacle!!!
Pit Spit is the best! Gimme a kiss!!!

I have been with my adoptive family almost two years now. I had thought life was perfect, until they brought a dog in the house. At first I thought he was just visiting, I have had visitors before - even over night. I did think it was suspicious that he didn't bring his owners with him. I quickly went to work, letting this dog intruder know that he was dog, I am boss! I approached him cautiously, and would say, "grr, I'm in charge." He didn't care, so how could I?
Eventually I found out he likes to wrestle and play chase, just like me! We have had so much fun together that I have decided I really do like him. I have realized it is no big deal, and no longer feel threatened by having a dog in the house. My adoptive parents realize that because I was here first, and I am dominant, that I get everything first. I am fed first, patted first and treated first. Otis is a really good dog, and doesn't care that he is omega.
I sometimes have to remind Otis with a sharp bark of his place – that’s all it takes and he backs off. I’ll use one of my jobs for example (Grocery Bag Security) - when Mom or Dad comes home from the grocery store all the bags are brought in and placed in the entrance. I then carefully check all bags by sticking my head in each bag. I then wait by the grocery bags until they brought into the kitchen. Last time groceries were brought in, Otis tried to take my place as Grocery Bag Security - I gave him a sharp bark, to say I am Grocery Bag security, and no, I don't need any help! He just doesn’t have the experience I do, and it is a very important job!
