|Hello everyone! This is Kisses (short for HibisKiss) my newest case of being a massive sucker. His original owner bought him off craigslist, and so of course he had parvo. The owner's mother agreed to pay for the at-home treatments if the son would actually do them and he accepted this. However, when I was getting ready to charge them out I overheard him say it seemed like a lot of work, and that maybe they should have just euthanised the puppy.
We'd had a day full of death that Saturday and I point blank told him we would absolutely NOT euthanise a happy, active puppy. I then said that I would take the pup on if they paid for what had already been done medically to him.
And so now I have a 9 week old pitbull puppy who is active, healthy, intelligent, people driven to the extreme (and the tag along separation anxiety issues), and really quite wonderful.
And I can only keep hold of him for the next few weeks.
So, some advice would be appreciated especially on what questions to ask potential adopters to make sure they will treat this pibble as he should be treated. He is NOT of a sort that would do well as either a 'guard dog' or a backyard dog, and that's what most folk around here get pitbulls for.
