What You Should Know Before Rescuing A Pitbull

Pit Bull Rescue What You Should Know

As a professional dog trainer, I personally love to work with Pit Bulls. Why?

Because they are smart. Because they really want to please. Because they are truly lovers.

Yeah, yeah, there’s some bad press about them. Guess what? Many, many times that’s out of “they want to please”… some people are just plain not cool when they show a dog who is trying to please to fight. It sucks for the Pitbull dog. They get used on this one and they really don’t intend to sign up.

In fact at one point Pit Bulls were actually known as the Perfect Nanny Dog until the media went wild with those that were not doing good with these dogs.

Here’s a story of a Pit Bull Rescue And What You Should Know (Huffington Post)

They said, “He’s strong, about 67 pounds, and he’s a puller but with some training he’ll be great.” Okay, I thought. Easy enough. But what they should have told me was something entirely different. What they should have told me was this:

This is an adventure.

 

Welcome to the best years of your life.

Where misconceptions, stereotypes and judgments are now personal attacks against not only someone you love dearly but you, yourself. And how you will feel like it is your personal mission to show the world how his “kind” is completely misunderstood.

 

Then you will read up on all the facts and statistics about Pit Bulls and realize half of what people believe is completely false or terribly misconstrued. Like pits having lock-jaw? False. Pits are born aggressive. False. Pits have stronger jaws than Rottweilers.False. Pits don’t make good family pets. FALSE.

 
Also, in the midst of being accepted into his pack, you will learn what loyalty really means. You will also know what it feels like to be scared half to death every single time your doorbell rings before explaining to your mailman, “He’s nice, I swear! Sorry… thanks for the — sorry again.”

 

Then you both will laugh, well, you will and he will look at you proudly, expecting a treat.

You will also walk with a little extra bounce in your step because this powerful, gentle giant stands beside you. You will feel a kind of pride you’ve yet to experience because you know you’re not only doing your baby justice but you’re part of the millions who are pleading for the rest of the world to give these amazing creatures a chance.

 

But sadly, your heart will break every time you hear about a Pit Bull who has landed in the hands of a wrong person or found himself in an awful situation. Whether it was dog fighting or an abusive owner or left tied to a park bench with nothing but a blanket. Your heart will break because you will come to understand the heart of a Pit Bull. Your heart will break because you will experience the love they, without question, give and with every tear you cry from hearing these awful stories, you will wish you could end it all.

Then you will feel incredibly grateful. Because this guy is yours and you are his and that’s something that can’t ever be taken away. Even if you don’t believe in a God above, this bond will feel like it was magically planned many moons ago, where the stars aligned perfectly and placed you two exactly where you needed to be to find one another. And you will be so blessed.

You will learn the frustration you feel when he is destroying your kid’s toys or eating food he’s not supposed to or barking when you wish he wouldn’t, fades quickly. That snuggling has now taken on a whole new meaning called: all over you, all the time, no matter what. And now you make it a point to never appear to do anything that could look like you’d be hitting him because seeing him duck his head out of fear hurts. You will also learn when he’s sticking his big head out your car window to expect one of two responses — a dirty look or a smile and nod.

 

You learn you’ll smile in both cases.

Nobody tells you your heart will change. But it does. You judge less. You care more. You learn how to accept life a heck of a lot better than before. You learn how to forgive and how to let go and how to live in the moment.

 

They should have told me I was going to learn how to love better. That loving this Pit Bull was going to change my whole life. And that he would make us so so happy!

But chances are I wouldn’t have believed them anyhow. I guess it was something I had to learn on my own, with this guy.
