    Good morning. Quick story. . .
    My family has been a dog family for quite some time. Usually only one dog at a time though. We have a little female mutt dog - Roux - who is sweet as can be. For close to a year, my wife and I have discussed adopting another dog as pet and companion. We talked about adopting a larger dog because there just seemed to be so many at the local SPCA all the time. We also realized that any larger dog we adopted would likely be some type of pit bull mix. We (wife, kids and Roux) met several dogs at the SPCA. Finally we met the big fellow we ended up adopting - Gumbo. He is amazing. Seems to be a APBT/American Bulldog mix, but who knows? He is 5 years old and, we were told, was given up by a family because they couldn't have a large "bully" breed in their rental house.
    Gumbo came to us completely house trained - zero accidents in almost 3 weeks! We found out that he is crate trained when he tried to get into Roux's crate, and wasn't that entertaining. We got him his own crate the first day. He loves going for walks - pretty good on a leash, but needs to work on pulling when he sees a cat. Not to say he went crazy, just wanted to see what it was, I think. He doesn't jump on people and is fairly well mannered. He and Roux get along fairly well. He sometimes likes to play a little rough, but she lets him know to mind his manners and he listens. Having a 74lb dog is taking some getting used to, but we are excited to have him with us and he is quickly becoming part of the family.
    Well, not so quick. Sorry that was long.
