    She is still a pup and was rescued from my daughters home in town. The neighbors were afraid of her because of her breed. She needs to be with a family who will love and exercise her.

    Thank you fellow chicken lovers

    I would charge an adoption fee of around $100.00. Because labratories will take free pets and use them as reasearch, and dog fighters will take free pitbulls. Especially because she is young.

    I hope you find a great home for her.

    I agree with sundown- you gotta be careful when you say "giveaway pet".

    Thank you for the replies. I guess I am naive because I never thought about them trolling a site like this. I don't really know why that little cash would make a difference though. Why is that? I guess I always think people think like I do and that they would love a pretty dog like her and take care of her.
    Thank you for being so patient with me.

    It's because it is more than they would get selling her to a lab and dog fighters take them when they're free to turn into bait dogs. With so many free dogs out there, they're not going to pay for something they're gonna let another dog KILL! [​IMG]

    It helps to insure that the person that takes her seriously wants her, and that they can afford proper pet care. Good luck finding her a home... she is very pretty [​IMG]

    edited to add..... there are a few people out there that even pretend to be rescue no-kill shelters in order to obtain free animals..... you'd be very surprised where they show up.

    Thank you for answering that. Now how do I redirect my heading for this post? That makes sense. I sure wouldn't want anything like that to happen to her. No animal deserves that.

    You can edit it by editing the original post. You'll see your heading listed above the post box.
     
  10. I would also ask for references, and tell them that it is your policy to check up on her at any time,since you want her to have a good home. They are great dogs, my son used to breed and sell them and they would not sell to any one wouldn't give them references and agree to unscheduled visits. He was very careful and knew the background of the dogs he bred,Ihave agranddaughter of one of his pitts so I know what she is.
