True, I just wanted to bring it up in case he had not thought about going the rescue route. I got my Mastiff from a breeder, a year later I got a pit rescue. I doubt I'll go to a breeder again because there are so many good dogs in shelters needing a home. I just feel those guys in the shelter are in more desperate need of a home but you're not wrong. My pit was in poor shape when we got her. Estimated a year old. We've had her about 4 years now and she's spoiled rotten. Something about a rescue. It's like they know you gave them a chance at a better life.
I put a deposit down one a pup Saturday. I did look at the local shelters, but every dog I was interested in had some issues that I didn't want to deal with. The most common being exposure with children.
