If you’re thinking about getting a puppy do some research first. (A good book to read is “Before You Get Your Puppy” by Ian Dunbar.) All puppies are not created equal. Some are shy, some are bold and some start out shy and then become bold! Think about your lifestyle and try to choose a dog that matches it. If you adopt a pup from Downtown Dog Rescue, the dog generally has the benefit of learning how to play and interact with the other dogs in the pack. Travis is a great example of this. DDR got him after he was attacked by a house full of Chihuahuas. As you may have read in Mia’s blog post last week, she nursed him back to health and now he’s benefiting from being socialized with the pack downtown. It’s a good thing too because Travis is a bold little puppy that isn’t afraid to take on the big dogs. Travis needs a strong, experienced adopter, but until he finds his forever home, he will continue to learn from Lori, Clancy and the rest of the pack. Exactly what every young pit bull needs!
