Another rescue (Grant L@@K!)

I know i've not been around in a while, the store thing and all.....
but we've had time to adopt another pitty. His name is Apollo and he's awsome. We saved him out of Toronto, we was abused and starved when they found him. Now he's a god, thus the name.
Here's a pic of him.

Hey man! Congrats on your new found friend!
That is one beautiful looking dog!
Its a real shame something that beautiful could be so mistreated.
even more so it being a red nose pit bull.
Not that any dog should be abused, but im bias towards pits.

Im Glad to hear hes doing so well.
When and how did u get it? which organization if any?
how long have you had it?
and how has it been adapting to the new surroundings and the other dog?

Im glad theres ppl like you around to take in these beautiful animals, i know i would if i had the room.

Gvg.
PS. that pink nose on that complete white coat is making me melt! lol

Thanks!

Hey Grant.
We got him Jan. 13th although we've been waiting for him for over a month. The foster family had to ensure he wasn't dog aggressive. He's not. We adopted him from a group in Toronto. They are listed in @ this website. If you go into the "dogs for adoption" at the top and find "Canada and Alaska". He should still be in the second listing down. They have him as "Jacob".
www.pbrc.net
On this website will be things that will break you heart. Pitty abuse the likes you've never known. Dogs having their ears cut off with scissors buy fighters, pups with missing eyes that have been booted out of them buy owners thinking it'll make 'em better fighters. Starved on purpose pitts, you name it, it's in there. There are also great stories of pittys winning and getting the recignition they deserve.
Apollo just needs some discipline and he'll adjust fine. He's a little wild and tries to hump my little female all the time. The bigger male we own (also a rescue) isn't sure he likes him yet, but hasen't done too much except growl and bark.
Who couldn't love the little bugger.
And yeah Grant that pink nose sniffin' you face in the morning is one of the best ways to wake. I'll post pics of the 3 dogs soon.

Damien

Here are my two bandogges....Rogue female is the black one,
Keigan is the brindle male.
The new white is adoreable. Good for you, and there needs to be more good dog people out there.


I hope the pictures both work.

nice job damien, i have a rescue pit out of hamilton, emos oasis was the rescue organization, i don't have a pic of him up right now, but he looks like petey from the little rascals...he was starved and mistreate when i got him, he was 6 1/2 months old and about 20 pounds..could barely walk, had trouble breathing, he's doing fine now though 1 1/2 years old and was weighed yesterday at 54 pounds. i wish there were more people out there like you...too many pit bulls for adoption, it's such a wonderful breed, it's kind of a shame they got so popular...so many idiots out there
