I volunteer at our local pit bull rescue and when we received a phone call about a man selling a 5 week old pitty puppy on the street, we didn't hesitate to get her and I reluctantly agreed to foster her. We already had one pitty and wasn't sure if I wanted another. We kept her on high end kibble figuring since she is a foster, she needs to be adoptable and most people aren't keen on raw feeding. And a funny thing was happening - she kept growing...ALOT! All of a sudden it occurred to me that this is no pit bull. I believe we have a Dane or Dane mix. At 5 months, no pit weights 51 lbs!
A week ago a funny thing happened at feeding. Hula was getting her beef heart and Rocy her kibble mixed with some canned food. Roxy took one look at her bowl, then at Hula, then at me. Almost as if to say, "Hey Mom..I want what she has!". So I threw away the kibble and flopped down a chicken quarter. The rest is history. And we have decided to adopt Roxy and make her a permanent part of our family.
