My personal introduction to Pit Bulls came in 1998 my son brought home a pit mix puppy, an accidental breeding, a throw away a last of a litter stuck in a basement by itself, of course the story he told me was that the puppy was running loose in a parking lot and "what was I suppose to do?" I told him, well take him in your room and put down some paper, I though could not resist this cute little puppy, when I went to retrieve him out of his room, he had laid paper ALL over the whole room and that puppy lead me on a journey to learn.
My path in life changed and it sent me on a road of education about a breed that I had previously never even heard of. As time went on I learned a lot, I meet a lot of Pit Bull people, I made a lot of wonderful friends and I have had the chance to meet a lot of bullies. I found out how much of an underdog these dogs are. I found out that these dogs are one of the most abused dogs in the world and how resilient they are with an ability to bounce back when given the chance. I also found that they need GOOD people to be there for them and to be their voice.
I joined a Pit Bull chat groups who better to learn from than other pit bull owners, which led me to get more interested and more involved and a couple of years later I ended up as a volunteer for pit bull rescue organization. During those years I have done events, attended seminars, help to raise funds, transported, fostered, home checked, spent years in dog training classes learning about dog behavior, hung out with other pit bull people and talked and talked and talked pit bull.
And here we are, a Pit Bull family, Pit Bull people on another curve of our life with a new journey, perhaps a slower paced journey but hopefully it will be a place where we together can continue to help educate, help raise funds and continue to advocate for the dogs that have become so much a part of our lives.
