Oh I definitely didn't automatically assume they were going to be bad owners, I just figure I should share the knowledge, you know... help set them up for success with her. I met her today and OH MY GOD SHE IS ADORABLE. She may be a mix, but i mean who knows. She definitely looks pit bull even at such a young age, so I'm excited to see how she progresses.
He said that she was living in a yard with two or three full grown male dogs and she wasn't able to get to food often and so on...he said it was kind of a "thug" place, and she may
have been stolen originally, (you never know how things get distorted through the grapevine) but they have no clue where she came from, or anything about her... someone they know was able to get her out of wherever she was and they adopted her. They have already been getting her socialized with some well-known dogs which I told him was of utmost importance since she was probably taken from her mom early. I don't think she looks any older than 10 weeks... and that's a generous estimate... I've never had a puppy so I really don't know, but she is small, and very "young puppy" looking.
BUT, she is an absolute JOY!!! I was peeking over our fence and she was so excited to see me, she was trying to climb the fence to get to me, and she just frolicked around like adorable puppies do, haha. I held her for a few minutes and she just licked my ears and my face all over.
They have been using the bathroom for "her space" and he said she is really good about being in there... I ordered two new crates today so I told him they could have Harlow's current one whenever they get here.
He is just going to get a tie out for potty time, so he doesn't have to hover over her. She was trying to sneak into our yard to play with Boss, so I think that's a really good idea until we are able to fix the fence.
He was saying how great and well behaved she is and everything. I was glad to actually talk with him about her and everything. I'm excited because he definitely seems open to any advice or info. Anyway, Here is Sassy, my new adorable neighbor:
She was being super squirmy trying to play with Boss so it was SO HARD to get a picture of her... it doesn't even do her justice when it comes to her sheer adorableness.
