I thought it was #15. The one indicated to be a pitbull was too long in the muzzle and didn't show the muscularity that one would want to see.

Great point, PB.

Any dog can bite, any can be deadly.

As my sweet, loving dogs grow old, they ache, are stiff and sometimes are enduring pain that they cannot communicate to me. Twice my most gentle dogs bit me or my daughter (who fell on one asleep) bit a human. It was not their fault but our responsibility.

I know! As it turns out, my two pups must be Dogo Argentinos (Dogs of Argentina?) It sounds better than "pit bull" anyway. Now I can be a snob. ;-)

Both of my pups have the eyes of the Dogo Argentino. My boy, Buddy, has the stance and the muscularity of the Dogo Argentino.

I wish I could find a "job" for Buddy. He would make a fabulous working dog. He loves to find things, he loves to jump and he loves to pull ANYTHING. IF it's big, and looks pullable, he'll try. He has a whole collection of large limbs he's pulled together from our side yard. They are his treasures, so he keeps them all in one corner of the yard. It's nice and neat. When we put him in the side yard as his home, I was concerned he would tear up my plants and the pond. It was the opposite - he's cleaned out all the underbrush and low-hanging limbs. He sweeps the sidewalk with his tail. His little kingdom looks really nice now! The only plant that has suffered is our small palm. Buddy chews the big ones off at the base and carries them back to the front and side of his doghouse. He's just doing what dogs do, which is building himself a place to sleep under the stars.

We've learned Buddy spends more time sleeping in varying areas of his little park rather than in the doghouse we laboriously put together for him. He only uses the dog house in the winter, when we put up his heat light, and in the summer when it rains. Instead of drinking from his water bowl, he drinks from the pond (the pond has a good filter, so the water is always clean.)

When we bring him his dinner, he doesn't eat it where we place it. Instead, Buddy picks up the bowel and carries it throughout the yard until he find a place he likes. Then he puts it down and eats the food.

Buddy has definitely gone native.

Whenever I take him for a walk, he always enjoys it, The only tme he pulls the leash is when he knows we are on the way home. I feared early on that Buddy might not like his "park at home", but I was wrong about that, too. Everytime I unhook his leash, he runs right in with a big smile on his face!

I suppose I could hire out Buddy to clean up yards that are cluttered with stuff - yards that have vines to be pulled and dead tree limbs to be removed. And he's really good at sweeping walks and trails. I could rent him out on a month-by-month basis.

I'll start him a business: Buddy's Yard Care or Buddy Does Neglected Yards. Children should stay in the house, because Buddy would rather play with children than anything! He loves all children. Small dogs, too - Buddy will lick a small dog to pieces, then experct the poor dog to get up and play Lickie again.

PB be very careful that buddy doesn't get any Sego palm, as they are poisonous to dogs. You coulld get him a backpack for walks and carry water bottles, etc. in it. They have a pack on each side and are available at Pet stores.

Thanks, G4P. I do have one sago out there, but it doesn't appear he has touched it.

THANK YOU for the idea about the bookbag! I think he'll really like that. He'll feel purposeful when I start calling him to get things out of it.

He is such a sweetie, and sometimes it breaks my heart that he can't stay inside with his sis. However, she's the Alpha, and she doesn't tolerate him playing with Jim. There was one time Molly thought, with good reason, that Buddy was hurting Jim (they were both engaged in rough play outside.) Molly jumped on Buddy and took him down. I cried for days. Neither were seriously hurt, but suddenly my pups had transformed.

That said, Is is sooooo gratifying to know that Molly will never fight, and Buddy will never act as a bait dog in the rings in the northern part of the county.

It was either re-home one of them or separate them, so we separated them in the most humane way we could. Buddy loved to stay outside anyhow, and most of the time he seems pretty happy out there. Sometimes I think it hurts me more than it hurts him. Hubby said I should get a tent and camp out with Buddy. Sad
