I'm a fur mommy!!!

The DH and I just adopted a beautiful two year old Pit Bull Terrier!

Her name is Tia and she was brought in as a stray with her brother Cash. As much as we wish we could take him too, we need to start with one dog as she is our first. She was house trained before so it's been smooth sailing so far, she has the greatest temperment! I mentioned her in another thread and I was asked to post pics so here they are, enjoy:













She just got back from the vet in these pics so she is tired and getting adjusted to the new house. But this morning she has had tons of energy. She played fetch in the back yard and went for a walk with the dh. We couldnt be happier!

She is too beautiful. Make sure she gets plenty socializing, so she doesn't get tempermental. She will continue to be happy and loving that way. My dogs, are not sociable and would bite anyone that came in the gate. Because of the bad rep of that breed of yours, it's essential that she is comfortable around strangers. I have been around 3 pits in my life and all 3 were loving and fun to be around, even with strangers. Good for you being a new mommy, lol, it's so much easier with furries, they love you no matter what, hehe

Since she's two and she was with a good family before (by all appearances I mean) we think she'll go on being a sweet heart. She thinks she's a lap dog <3 But we will certainly keep her social, we love her that way. Thanks! We're totally in love with her!

Sp, congrats. New baby in the house!
She looks like she's understanding, or trying to, in the last pic.
Have fun!
I have to ask dina, how or other baby is doing now. Thanks for
reminding me.

Oh yea... Can't wait to see them. (We went picture happy when we got Binks!) And also want to say blessings to you for adopting a 'pound pup'. They all need homes and a second chance. She looks like a lovable sweet girl. I'm sure Tia is happy to have a new family!!!

Awwww, she's beautiful and so adorable!!! I just want to rub her belly and kiss her! We have a miniature doxie that is a year and four months old...and SPOILED rotten! She kisses everybody that will stand still for more than 2 seconds...we're working on that.

Congratulations on your new baby, but be careful! You will find yourself buying boat loads of chew toys that will overtake your home if you don't
stop yourself! Yea...we're working on that too!

Nice poochie. I feel sorry for Cash, but ya can't save them all.
My next dog might be a pittie, they are very outgoing dogs and always in tune with their owners. Give me a strange APBT to take care of any day over a Min Poodle or Min Pin.
