Well..I am a middle aged female.... single, I have a demanding job and I am pursuing education in my field. I have had dogs my entire life. I have purchased a few pedigrees... and I have rescued some mixed or just plain mutts as some people would say. I have learned something from every dog that I have ever had. The unconditional love and the determination to adapt to obstacles that life has thrown at them shows me that they are much more intelligent and loving than we think. I have been interested in the pit bull breed since the Michael Vick incident and also watching the dog whisperer. I have always been curious about the breed because I could not believe that any breed of dog is that bad of a dog. Yes, the instinct to survive is a trait in that dog, but isn't it in every dog. Put any dog in a survival situation, they will fight to survive. It is the human that has caused this breed to get it's bad rap. I met over 30 pit bulls a few weeks ago at a private rescue in a small town in Rougemont, NC. I did not meet one aggressive pit bull!!! That is why I am here! I want to start helping this breed!! It will probably be very small at first because of my work and education but this is a passion for me and i want to see changes and help these sweet misundersood babies! I hope others will join me!
