Page and Booker: Pit Bull Puppies

page_may_13_2018 (11)ps Page and Booker are lovely three month old pit bull mix puppies.
They landed in the shelter at no fault of their own but because their owner landed on some hard times.

Page is a pretty brindle.  Booker is a reddish brown with cream.
Booker has the reddish coloring of his dad.  We don’t know who the mom was but did get to meet the dad.
The dad is about 50# and incredibly sweet.

These pups were well loved and it shows.  They love to cuddle, especially Booker.booker_may_13_2018 (3)ps
Both are great with other animals and will make fine family pets.
They are partially house trained and it won’t take much to complete the process.
They are not crate trained as they are in a kennel with some potty pads due to their young age.
Please note that adopters will be expected to participate in a dog obedience class.

There are many reasons why taking your new puppy to a dog class is a good thing:
encourage bonding, increase pups self-esteem, learn new things or new ways of teaching those old things, meet new people who love dogs too, have resources to help solve those doggy behaviors we don’t want, and maybe, just maybe, get involved in the world of doggy sports because today, there is a multitude of doggy sports for everyone!
Here are a few: Rally obedience, agility, musical freestyle, lure coursing, barn hunt, hose work, conformation, herding.  Your wallet may be lighter when you go out and compete but your life will be fuller!

page_may_13_2018 (4)psA Note about Pit’s and pit mixes: It is important for potential adopters to do their research about the pit bull breeds – both the good and the bad. They have been used for nefarious reasons and because of that there are often city ordinances, home insurance exceptions, etc. that need to be researched and considered before adoption.

Pit bulls make excellent family dogs and are very loving when raised properly. Part of that proper raising is keeping them socialized. You want to make sure you have time to spend letting your pitty meet new people and animals throughout his life.

It is also very important that you have the time to teach your pit obedience commands; beyond the simple sit and shake. Pit bulls need to know that their owner is in charge and that he needs to listen when given a command.

A badly behaved pit bull is an easy target for those who are ignorant of the breed – don’t let your new baby become a target. You should want to be a part of changing society’s negative view of them, not part of the problem.

That said, they are very loyal, loving dogs and make great companions.
