Newest Family Member!! *pics*

So, after months and months of wanting to get a dog, I have finally aquired one.. I had come across this girl a couple times at petfinder.com and everytime I saw her, I kept considering calling.. Finally, after a couple weeks of debating, I called and arranged to go and see her.. So, on Wednesday, I went out and checked her out.. When I first saw her, she was very well behaved, sat infront of me and let me pet her and such.. She listened well, was calm and beautiful.. I told the lady that had her (foster home) that I would let her know by Friday if I was going to take her or not.. When I got home, I spoke with some friends and decided I had to have her.. I called the lady back just 45 minutes after leaving her house and said I would take her.. So, yesterday I popped out the rescue and filled out the paperwork and picked her up, a 1 year old female Pitbull.. I never thought I would ever own a Pitbull, but she's absolutly adorable and soo well behaved, I couldn't be happier with her, although, she could use a better name.. Here are a few pics..





And here's one of the savage beast!!!


It's amazing how many people will cross the street when they see her.. Today I even had a lady pick up her little yappy dog when she laid eyes on my girl.. It's pretty sad really.. Oh, by the way.. Her name is Princess (she was named prior, obviously)

Thanks for looking!!

-Matt

It's funny when people say, 'what's her name?' and I reply with, 'Princess'.. LMAO.. She's content with the name, and I left all the paperwork as 'Princess'.. IM sure it will grow on me after about 3 years.. LMAO :P

Congrats man, Im glad that after all the BS you finally got your dog. I also thinks its awesome that you were able to adopt one and give it a loving home. Princess isn't that bad, my dog came with his name too. Can't wait to meet her...

I have already started to noticed this in the two short days that she has been here.. She's crashed beside me right now.. If I get up to move at any time, she's right on my heels.. And she loves my youngest Nephew.. Im very pleased with her to say the very least..

Princess is an awesome name! She looks like a perfect little princess, and sounds like one too the way you describe her. If you really hate it though, start calling her princess something, say princess roxanne, then gradually only call her roxanne, or whatever name you want to fill in the blank there. I do like to pick names for all my pets, and when you take animals with names, its hard to keep the ones others have chosen sometimes.

Anyways she is gorgeous! Congrats!

Congrats Matt.....she's really nice. On a side note: Don't be offended when people pick up their small dogs when she's around. It's really hard to tell how a larger dog will react to a small one.....we have found that many large dogs can't stand our little guy but they are fine with everyone else! ...maybe it's because they think he's ugly
Anyway, congrats again...they are great dogs.

Congrats, I know the feeling when you want a dog. For years I wanted one and once I got my own house it was pretty much on my mind even before getting furniture, lol.

But once I was ready I picked up 2 puppies which are like kids in a way. But fiancee says I am not done with kids.........so boids, birds, and dogs and soon children, man I am stressed.

Congrats with Princess.

Cya...

Tony

Oh, im not offended, I just find it really funny watching a lady do the 50 yard dash to grab her dog off the sidewalk and then do the same dash back to garage only to cower in the corner holding on for dear life.. LMAO.. All I could do is laugh and shake my head..

She looks so sweet, Matt.

The name will grow on you. We adopted an 8 year old MinPin 2 years ago. Her name was Princess too. We tried like crazy to name her anything else, even Fergie since she was a bit chubby and still kept the royalty theme, but the old name just stuck. You'll get used to it in a few weeks.
