About Us

JosephHi, 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….

Thanks always,

Joseph and Heather
