    LOL!!!! I'm sorry I'm LOLing- that is terrible what happened but "now I'm known as the crazy whiteboy with all the tattoos on the corner..." Man, I woulda kicked that guy in the junk or cut his balls off if he tried to steal my dogs. I am not confrontational what so ever but if you mess with my family including my dogs you're dead. Luckily the kind of neighborhood I live in most people are terrified of her... I'd rather them be afraid for no reason and their own misconceptions than have someone try to steal her for other purposes.
    I happen to live on a street where my close direct neighbors are all cops.... Lol

    I am a very new user. Ive only had my boys for a total of 5 years . I jave been a dog owner my whole life, but i know this breed was mislabled often, and around here no one understand the temperment of these dogs. I came here to hear from people who have gone through what i went through. The first few reaponses were curt. But i did get a response that was direct but postive. I would have to make changes but i could do this. Then positivity flowed after that and truly helped me. There is so much to learn i havent been able to classify my boys yet. But i am confident now that any questions i have i can find answers and help. That why ill stay. Bc people truly wanted help me. I have yet to join a debate. But for a first time user i found the answers i needed through a simple forum.

    Im new i tried to read some threads to get more information see if some one went through what i went through if there was really only a couple of options. I dont feel anyone was rude but im sure it had been addressed before. But talk about information over load. I needed a more direct answer and i got it. Im sure repeating yourself is annoying. I can tell you that if someone directed me to a thread that could have helped i wouldnt have taken offense. There is a lot to navigate. I appriciate the patience the ones who did answer showed me. But like in any advise teaching situation patience is key. This forum can be overwhelming. The misinformation out there can overwhelming. I was brought to this forum from googling about bully behavior i read 6 articles before i read the 10 threads here before becoming a member and posting a question i felt i couldnt find direct response to. I guess i did exactly what you suggested but i can understand the exhuastion of reading and reading and just wanting someone to directly say....blah blah blah... hope that helps.

    Thanks for your feedback! From my own experience, I have found that bully breed forum members tend to communicate more - shall we say - direct and to the point? I am glad that you took the time to read and to listen ... I am sure that it will make a big difference for you and the dogs.

    I believe one must approach new members who are new and inexperienced with much more patience and tolerance to make them feel more welcomed and at home.
    My alter ego Saiy would surely disagree with this approach but that is his opinion and not mine. LMAO

    Well I'm not exactly new but I haven't participated much and was away for a long time, but I'm amazed at how few new posts there are. I got my pitbull from a shelter 11 months ago (she's now 7 years old) after my last companion (in my avatar) passed on last summer after 15 awesome years I had with her.
