Hi, I’m Joseph. And I’m Heather.
When a friend came to me about 7 years ago, asking if I would be interested in having one of his pit bull puppies, I immediately said no. I had heard so many bad things about pit bulls. I was afraid of them even though I had never met one.
I decided to do some research on the breed. Almost everything that I found on the internet was negative stuff. After seeing countless pictures of the breed, I started to fall in love with the look of pit bulls. I kept wondering how such a beautiful animal with such soulful eyes could be so dangerous. So I kept searching for something, anything positive about these dogs.
That’s when I came across Pit bulls and Parolees on Animal Planet. I watched one episode and was sold on the show. I binge watched the entire season. After I was finished I knew that I had to have one of those dogs. I called my friend and went to meet the puppies…
I fell in love with the whole litter. I got to handle each of the puppies. Each one was adorable and sweat, but I didn’t feel a connection with them. Finally I got to hold this little black and white male…. he was the one. I had to give him a name (Trago) and wait until he was old enough to come home with me.
Since I had other dogs in the house, I thought it would be a good idea to bring them to meet the new puppy before I brought him home. The meet and great went amazing. When I brought him home, he fit in like he was meant to be there.
I have had dogs most of my life so I thought training and toys and such would be a breeze. I was so wrong. Trago was a wild and crazy dog from the start. He loved people. He loved to jump on people to kiss them. He thought he was a lap dog. He loved to play.
I could not find toys that would last more than 5 minutes. I never had this issue with any of my other dogs. I could not get him to learn any commands other than “sit” and “shake”. I could not find any good training tips that I hadn’t already tried. So, Trago continued to go through toys like no tomorrow, and he continued to be a wild and crazy lug of a dog…
Hopefully, I will be able to help pit bulls by breaking stereotypes and giving information about them as a breed. I hope to help people understand the dog. I hope to be able to send people to the right places to get what they need…. such as a pit bull sturdy toy, or that training tip to get your dog to sit….
