      well i do believe this is a PIT BULL thread and not a bull dog thread,

      ... and right there shows just how little you know.

      Quote »
      and i have never seen a pit bull look like that unless they are being abused and starved (not accusing). second, I know plenty about dogs, and when i see that the spine is very noticeable like that little guys, it throws up a red flag. My buddy has a bull dog that is extremely muscular, and he doesn't look like that. third, no need to get so offensive son!

      never seen a roach backed dog eh? never seen a dog w/ a luxating pattela? never seen a dog down on its pastens? never seen a dog w/ elbow displasia? well, look at the picture again before you cast blame. like i said- if you dont know what the hell you are looking about, you certainly should not even attempt to comment on it.
      so go ahead and look at these pics and tell me again what i should be doing...







      that dog was found at the bottom of a ditch off the side of the road left for dead-an inhumane way to cull an unwanted pup. we took him in and tried to rehabilitate him so he could be adopted. as off his visit w/ the ortho specialist last month-we are putting him to sleep. he has a level V+ luxating pattela(left rear leg), and severe front elbow displasia, neither of which are repairable thru surgery. over the past 8 months we have done everything we can for him, but now its time to do the right thing for him.

      but if you think that because you can see a dogs ribs or vertebrae that it is malnourished, then you are sadly mistaken

      i keep trying to tell my roomate/ex/whatever that, but she keeps insisting on over feding our oldest male dog, he never gets past the showing ribs and he has been screened for worms, she doesn't get that he's health but old...

      and stealthmk1 i went to petsmart sat for that toy and they didn't have it... i'll have to get ti online.

      wow dude chill the hell out. maybe if you would have posted that info earlier people would have understood, but did you? no. right away you started insulting people telling them how they know nothing about dogs. Your first pix only showed a really skinny dog, not what those other did. The first one you posted didnt show his condition 100%.
      try not being an @$$ hat next time.

      that sux about the little man though. is he in any pain?

      Thanks for the book recommendation, I just ordered it and I'll read it while I'm mulling over my decision. I'm in no rush to buy a puppy this week or this month even. I have to give this a lot of thought, because I really don't want to jump into something without knowning what I'm getting myself into.

      Where did you get your puppy from? I found some at the local humane societies and they seem to charge $250-$300 on average for adoption fees. The requirements are a little more stringent at some of those because I don't live in the same county and also they seem to imply that they would rather have experienced pitbull owners rather than novice dog owners... I'm just wondering how extensive the interview process is.

      Ours came from the local humane society. Their interview process is a little lacking in my opinion, but they do get dogs adapted. All they required is a fenced yard and asked if we had any other animals. The pit bull rescues I looked into had a very intense process. They wanted to interview us, come to our home to check out the living conditions, and to meet our other animals.

      Not rushing into getting a dog is a wise choice, but you seem to have your head on straight. You are already asking yourself some some very good questions, as well as thinking about the dog and how you will take care of it.

      If you do get a pit bull you will not be sorry. They make great companions and they show a lot of love. Ask anyone who owns a pit bull and they will tell you how loyal they are. They also love to play. We have one of those Jolly Balls as well and that is the one toy we have had the longest. She will destroy most toys within a week.

      Ours is the biggest baby in the world. If someone broke into our house she would welcome them with kisses!

      Doggie wheelchair?

      He seems like a happy little guy, is putting him to sleep really necessary? Has it gotten worse since those vids were taken?

      dude that sucks, im sorry to hear........there is no other alternative? operation or something (not familiar with that kind of condition) If he is in alot of pain then its understandable, but hopefully there can be something done?

      & 6wks old Bruno

      both were rescues from philly, maxx has been the best dog I've ever owned, pitbulls are the most loyal & friendliest dogs if treated the same way!

      i helped board that cat and his bro for a stint and my two bulls would let those cats pretty much walk all over them, they'd cuddle sometimes, but at times you'd be making dinner or watching TV and one of the bulls would run into where you were and hide behind me or the gf with that look...

      The advantage of getting a puppy is this will give him time to bond with you. This is the best time to properly socialize a dog with people and other dogs. Pit bulls were breed to be dog aggressive not people aggressive, with socialization and training your dog can be like any other dog.

      How young is young enough? I know that puppies can be had as young as 8 weeks but looking around on Petfinder.com, it seems like puppies that young are few and far between within a 150 mile drive. Obviously the dogs I am seeing now won't be suitable for me since I'm not looking to adopt one for a couple of months but is it ok to adopt one that is 3-6 months old or better to adopt at 8 weeks?

      Is Petfinder the best resource available to me right now? I've gone to several websites for SPCAs in my county and surrounding counties and it seems like they all use Petfinder, it seems to be the standard for online pet adoption. I am familiar with most of these local shelters due to a past job I had in the pet services field[cremation/memorial services] which has allowed me to weed out shelters I will absolutely not deal with. I plan on stopping by these places obviously but that won't come till later when I am ready to adopt...it's not like buying from a breeder when I'll have an idea of when puppies will be available.

      Eli and Piper are best buds now. They clean each other and stuff, but in the beginning Piper would bitch slap Eli and put him in place. Still does from time to time when he gets too jumpy. When we had three cats with my old Pit Luna they would bully the crap out of her too.

      Our cat beats the hell out of Gauge. He's a bit of a momma's boy and doesn't care for the dogs too much. The cat is just getting to the point where they can be near each other.

      That's a good question. I am by no means a pet expert, so maybe some other people here can chime in. Ours was about 9 months when we got her and she has turned out to be great dog. She had a couple of things we had to work on but she was still young enough that I feel her past life has been put behind her.

      Evie again. Ironically enough she loves wearing her coat *inside*. Yet loves playing outside without her coat... to the point where she'll roll around trying to remove it until I give in and take it off. As soon as it's off she runs around full bore for a few minutes like the moron she is.


      And hauling arse through 12" of fresh snow, with more falling. She loves the snow and can't get enough of chasing snowballs. She's a goon.


      edit: I spel & type gud.

      my parents recently got a small dogsled. 18 pounds. my mom hooks up our pit daisy and my sisters husky and has a blast. my dad said he was doing it with just daisy and she was loving it. Theyve done it a few times now and says they have it down like theyve been doing it their whole life. i need some pics and or video.

      greg, i am sorry to hear about your situation. just watching the videos made me sad.
