Before we put Oliver in bunny ears, we put this sweet old guy in them. 🐰 Nothing cuter than a pitbull bunny!
We adopted Chewy when he was 5 from a no-kill group. I had started volunteering for dog rescue about 6 years ago. Prior to that I had never really been around a pitbull and was even sort of scared of them.
However, I met so many wonderful pitties, that my mind was totally changed. They are a big dog, with the same risks as any other big dog, or perhaps even less because on temperament tests, they score very high- right under a Lab and above a Golden Retriever. If you are prepared to properly care for a large dog and watch them carefully around children (not just pitties, ANY dog, especially any large dog), they make AMAZING family pets.
I’d also encourage potential adopters to consider a middle aged dog...their temperament is largely set by 4-5, their puppy energy is much lower than a younger dog, and they are actually easier to integrate into a busy family! Older dogs and senior dogs RULE!
When I met Chewbacca, my heart was opened. I knew he had to be my dog. We have never had a more loyal, well-behaved, and sweet natured pup. He is my shadow and my heart-dog. He listens and obeys immediately whenever I ask him to do something, he has never caused a mess, eaten anything he shouldn’t, jump up on people, and he rarely barks. He is soulful and calm, deep and gentle. He is my perfect gentleman.
When I was pregnant, he would curl himself around my belly. With Oliver, he is and always has been gentle, calm, and extremely tolerant. He loves and adores children. Our family wouldn’t be complete without our ‘Bacca’ as Oliver calls him. Please consider rescue when you bring in a furry family member! •
At Tails and Tags it is my goal to use modern, scientifically proven, force free, pain free, and fear free training to help you and your dog build a better bond. A lot of times I am told that Positive Training doesn’t work on rescue pitbulls. Well here is Odin to tell you all that Positive Training saved his life.
The cats were there first, and now this Blanket Monster is deeply offended that she doesn’t have first pick of which blankets to nest in and will be filing a complaint with the management about the utter indignity.
