Next, the boys...

born: April 13, 2012
adoptable: June 8, 2012
what comes with them: they're neutered, microchipped, wormed, vaccinated, socialized and LOVED

   

That done, Copper gets a little extra face-time, showing us those puppy CURLS --

-- how PRETTY you are, little man -- !!


Here, Pearl.

We love her innocence, and also, we love the fact that we can let her keep that innocence, along with Steph's help --

-- so, Pearl can stay in her "happy bubble", not seeing the nastiness of being dumped in a kill pound as a baby --

-- what she'll get INSTEAD is the BEST of homes --

-- PROMISE!!


Here, more CHUNKINESS and BEAUTY at the same time -- !!

Uh oh --

-- here comes the white princess!

Just LOOK at her PRETTY markings -- !!!

Her face says she's all BUSINESS, but her FUR says she's just plain all FUN -- !!!


We love the little beauty-mark below Ivory's left eye --

-- you can never have enough CHARACTER, right princess??!!


And then, the wild-card, baby TIGER!!

He looks like a baby tiger cub, in a littttleeee way -- !!!


Then, little Jasper has his way with my shoe --

-- that's allowed, for NOW, little man -- !!


And INCOMING, yet AGAIN, is tank COPPER --

-- blub blub blub --

-- we love you, pretty boy!!


And here, the reason everyone's all here --

-- momma ONYX, who's very ADOPTABLE herself -- !!!

Such pretty eyes you have, little girl -- !!


As you can see, she's HAPPY as a CLAM, too --

-- now who wouldn't want such a little lady in their home??!!


Next, back to Pearl --

-- striking her prettiest of poses on her brother's BACK -- !!

Her eye color --

-- hmm --- like hazel??

PRETTY PRETTY!!


And then, what every baby wants --

Momma Ony, just PROUD as a PEACOCK here -- !!

Haha --

-- Copper shows his DISDAIN for being compared with his SISTER -- !!!


Sweet little man --

Just LOOk at those EARS -- !!!

We can definitely say momma Onyx is a pit bull --

-- and poppa??

Well, he was a ROLLING STONE --

-- that's for SURE -- !!!


Happy, belly full, loved --

-- who could WANT anything MORE??!!


And then, pretty boy Jade --

-- so we think!!

It may be JASPER, too --

-- but we think it's JADE -- !!


Haha --

-- with her rear-quarters looking more like a BUNNY than a PUPPY!!


And FINALLY she shows she's not all BUSINESS ---

-- pretty GIRL, you ARE!!!


Thump thump thump --

-- beauty GALORE here, missy!!!

As with the others, LOVE your NOSE!!!


As with the others, Ivory shows she's born with a sense of HUMOR!!!

Momma Onyx gives the big OK --

-- you can NOW pet her BABIES!!!


Aww --

Love you Ivory!!


And yet again, love abounds.

That's all these babies really need --

-- and that's what they get here in Steph's little pit bull paradise -- <3


OOohhh --

-- big YAWNS for BABY!!!


So, there we go --

-- another round of BEAUTY and SWEETNESS!

If you're interested in ADOPTING one of these LOVES, fill out the adoption application at the top of this page.

From there, we'll review the application, and if it's GREAT, we'll contact you for further steps!!

We think these loves will make GREAT family-pets --

-- nice and loving ones!!


So again, a big THANK YOU to Steph and pals for making these moments possible --

-- while these actions don't necessarily change the axis the earth spins on, they certainly make the lives of these little souls a whole lot EASIER --

-- and really, on a daily basis, who could ask for a more rewarding task??!!

GREAT WORK, all!!!

Their VIDEO at 5 weeks!

Things I like in an application:

- Applicants who join our pit bull forum, at www.pbsmiles.com. There, you'll find a small army of pit bull lovers -- 4,500 at the present -- !! For you, the adopter, you can learn about canine diet, pit bull temperaments, multi-dog households, and you can meet a nice group of people. For us, the rescuers, we can see your baby as they grow with you, hearing your stories about them and seeing pictures you post of them in their news lives -- win-win, right??!!
PLEASE DON'T IGNORE THIS PRE-REQUISITE -- it means a lot to us here -- !!
- Adult adopters, ready to be adults. People aware of the responsibility of a puppy, and aware this puppy will become an a medium-sized dog, with its own temperament and personality. Adult adopters who are ready for a 15 year commitment. This puppy does not have a depreciating "useful life" that is over when it becomes an adult -- instead, this dog's whole life is useful -- !!
 
- Owners who are aware of and who respect the pit bull temperament. This means people who know you can't "love" dog aggression out of their dogs -- instead, owners who are RESPONSIBLE with their pups -- crating them when unattended, supervising them with children, never leaving them outside unattended, and those who are ready for licks and lovin' in return! For more on dog aggression, click here.
 
- Adopters who treat their newest addition like a member of the family, realizing that this isn't a "dog in the box" and that its little life must be encouraged to go the right path and that obedience, socialization and training will get her there -- !!
 

- Financial commitment. Adopters willing to spend money on their new investment, including premium foods (like Candidae, Wellness, Nutro or raw food), plus adopters who will invest in pet insurance or a "dog fund", lest vetting be required, which may get expensive.

The adoption fee is $325 per dog. This is reasonable, considering the premium services that each pup gets. Each dog, before placement, is examined by a licensed veterinarian, spayed or neutered, wormed with premium wormer, given vaccinations on a regular basis (not just a one-shot deal), microchipped with a premium Home Again chip (made by Schering-Plough), fed premium raw food (not 'Ol Roy, or some other filler-laden junk) and has spent it's puppy fosterhood in a wonderful, attentive, CLEAN environment. Also, each puppy is accompanied by a personal home visit to YOUR home at placement, to ensure they're going to have the life of a king or queen -- !! If the home visit doesn't pass, puppy doesn't stay. This isn't some parking-lot-of-a-pet-store adoption scheme, instead, it's the highest-quality service I can provide for these young souls, as they journey off in to their lives. Note, too, we have had a recent increase in adoption fees, due to increased veterinary surgery rates.

 
- Smart and informed adopters, who research this breed and who realize that these pups are not for everyone. Pit bull temperament can be Googled, and a great start can be found here.

 

Things I shy away from in an application:

- Youth -- sorry kids -- this is a living being, not an iPod!! Young peoples' lives change a lot, and the first thing to get dumped is usually the dog, whether it be on their parents, a friend, etc., who are oftentimes ill-equipped and disinterested in this four-legged life -- then, the dumping or neglect begins.
- Renters. I get calls all the time saying, "Please take my dog -- I moved in to an apartment that doesn't allow them." Ummm -- did you fall asleep in an apartment that allowed them, and then wake up at a new address, in an apartment that doesn't allow them? This isn't magic here -- it's responsibility, and dogs come first. Please don't lie on the application, either -- this will show up in the home-visit -- !!

- Multi-dog households. While I love having many pit bulls, quite a few people aren't ready for the commitment and responsibility it takes to sometimes crate their dogs, rotate them out of the crates and generally own them responsibly. When that happens, I get calls saying, "I have to get rid of one of my dogs ASAP." I can never understand why these people think their lack of planning is all of the sudden my emergency.

- Busy households. Sure, puppies are cute, and they're cuddly, and after they're bathed, they smell nice. But when they grow up in to dogs, and the busy household moves on to their new obsession, the dog, now needing obedience, love and affection, is dumped in the suburban sense. The dog may even live "out on the porch" -- people mention that to me like it's acceptable -- dogs are social beings, and will not flourish in situations of neglect!
 
- People that call me sounding like gangsters. It happens a lot -- and they never want a spayed or neutered dog. Sorry folks -- this is rescue, not a puppy mill, nor the "syndicate". Also, please don't bother me with requests for "papers" -- last time I checked, no people I knew had "papers", and that didn't make them any less a "person" -- !!
