The How To Evaluate & Pick a Puppy
There are a few main things are that are looked for when an eval is done then other factors that certainly come into play when making final choices.
Most reputable breeders will eval and put the pups in order accordingly after looking at these factors as related to the breed standard of the org the pup is registered with, they are in no specific order here:
-working drive and ability.
- overall health
Other important things to consider:
- what the parents are like

Dating is hard. Dating with dogs…is interesting. In addition to the normal questions that run through every single person’s mind (What should I wear? Am I showing enough boob? Too much boob? How’s my breath?), a dog person will probably also have some, if not all, of the following thoughts:
- Will my dog like my date?
- Will my date like my dog?
- Will my date like my dog more than me?
- If my date has a dog, would our dogs get along?
- How does my date feel about dog hair?
- I sure hope I don’t have any dog hair in awkward places.
- What will I do with my dog if my date comes back to my place?
- More importantly, what will my dog do if I bring a date back home?
- Will my date be turned off by the copious amounts of photos of my dog I have?
- Should I have hidden said dog photos?
- How slowly should I reveal my layers of dog crazy?
- Can they handle the crazy?...
I could really use some advice because I have no idea as to what's going on with my Pitt and I'm worried he might be very sick. On Friday night, he was asleep in between my boyfriend and I. We thought he was dreaming, because I was gently petting his back and he began to growl. At first it was a low growl, then he lifted his head and began to bare his teeth at my boyfriend. My boyfriend has had Davis since he was a puppy, and Davis has never reacted this way, especially not to him. My boyfriend was able to calm him down and he suddenly seemed to "snap out of it" and was back to his usual happy self. The next day, Davis got very sick. He threw up enormous amounts of his solid dog food, and had diarrhea in his kennel. When we went to comfort him and make sure he was ok, he began to growl again. We figured it was because he was not feeling well. Lastly, this morning (Sunday), as we were heading to leave for work, I sat down to pet him as I always do. At first he was happy...
Well.... I am not new to the forum, but Nala is.
Few weeks after loosing my Katie (will miss her forever!!) - we got a call from a rescue we know and they got a call from an adopter. The people pretty much said - pick up the dog now or something will happen!
We were close by - so we picked her up.
Nala is not even a pit mix of any sort. So I am wondering, if I can stay with you guys?
Her mother is Akbash and her father Karabash. Her story is on the legacyrescue.us webpage.
Nala is about a year old, she was tortured, lost her tail to a machete, has big scars on her hind legs and all her siblings were beheaded, but her mother survived also.
This happened in Turkey - close to the Iraq / Armenian border. She was adopted in the US, only to be chained up, not walked, not trained and not fed enough. She came to me emaciated, scared of the leash, the outside cord anyhow, the dog park, the cars - everything.....
We are now working on her nutrition, her fears (and probably fear...
Hi, my name is Taylin and my fiancee and I own a 11 month old Blue Fawn by the name of Chai who is also our ESA. We've had Chai since she was four weeks old and never been separated from her until now.
Due to unprofessional property residential management where racial profiling, harassment, verbal and attempted physical abuse my fiancee and I were forced to relocate back to California leaving Chai behind in MA until we could send for her.
We are asking that you visit our gofundme link below in honors of Chai and hopes that is reunited with us as soon as possible. Any donations such as a reinforced crate helps.
My wife and I are new to owning a pit, however we have both had dogs in the past. I had a Rottweiler who was a great dog and we were definitely sad to see her go after 12 short years. My wife has had labrador mixes in the past. Currently we have a 7 mo male brindle pit who will either kill us or make us invincible...lol.

- Know if your dog can swim. A lot of people just naturally assume that all dogs can swim, but this is not the case. Know for sure, and don’t take any chances. Even if your dog can swim, she might not be a strong swimmer, and the best way to protect her pet is a...
Hi! I posted an introduction a few weeks ago and would like to post a question in the training forum but when I try I get an error message and it says to post in introductions first. Can someone help me figure out how to post in the training forum? I'm not sure if I need further approval from a moderator?
