I think you are amazing. I love big dogs and it breaks my heart to hear about the bad rap pit bulls have gotten because of neglectful and cruel owners. Keep up the good work!

Please help me to find homes for my two babies. Last Sunday I did something stupid...my dog was on a leash and another dog ran up on us and I picked up my dog and he juststarted biting in the air and got my face. I know now that I should not have picked him up but I did and now I have to get rid of him. I have had him since the day he was born and he is nuetered and the biggest baby you have ever seen.

We need help finding a home for our 1 year old pitbull. He's very social, and gentle with people, incluing children. Unfortunately he's outgrown our small space, and needs a place where he can run.

We'd like to see him with a family that loves him as much as we do.

Please help.

please help. I have a male pitbull that will have to be put to sleep if I cannot find him a home. he is an excellent obedient dog who loves people and other dogs. He is about 8 years old and has a lot of life left in him. I cannot have him here where I live so he must go within the next couple of days. His name is Tugger and loves to walk and play tug of war. He is an indoor dog and I really don't want to put him to sleep but he needs to go to a good home. Please call Dan at 503-757-5578 if you want a pitbull with a gentle kind soul.

I have two pit bull mixes, Ollie & Cylde, that are seriously the best dogs ever. They are brothers that get along with every dog they have ever come in contact with and love kids and people. They are loyal, loving, and perfect, but they are making it impossible for me to find a place to live. I can't just give them up because it would smash my heart, but if anyone knows of anyone who will love them as much as me and won't separate them and give them the time and love they deserve, please email me at Marialea84@aol.com. THanks and have a great day!

looking for someone to help. my female pitbull named kymber needs a new home. aside from her i have a female black lab and a large male german shepard/husky mix. kymber and the male have teamed up on my lab and the behavior is unacceptable. kymber is a very friendly loving good natured pit. she was a rescue and was doing quite well with the other dogs and the baby but then she started getting very territorial. she needs to be relocated immediately. on the medical side of things, the only thing that i can tell about is that she is about three years old, has littered at least one set of puppies and has her shots. the other issue is that i am moving into a park and they do not allow pitbulls and i would rather not take her to the pound. please help!
