At the vet's today it happened. They said Shadow most likely is a pure blooded pit bull with no lab, or if she has lab, very little (for example, her grandmother was a lab/pit mix). I don't care, actaully, I love pit bulls! ^_^
By the way, the lump on her ear was exactly what scout thought it was. Either a tick had fallen off from there, or it was something that begins with an h. ((forgot the name of it, lol). Either way it will just fall off, and she'll be fine.
As for her leg, her surgery has been put off until the summer. The vet wants her off her legs, and it will be VERY hard for her to walk. With no one but my grandma home all day that would be hard. She's not in pain. We have started to only give her pain medicine if she walks around whimpering and limping. Other then that, she's in perfect health.
Hey ShadowGirlie, glad to hear all is okay with your pittie pup. Hook up True_Pits with your dogster addy so they can have a look at her. They blew me away with their comments with some other pits(that I didn't even recognize as purebreds), so it will be cool to see what they have to say. =)
Here my puppy! Yup, the vet said she has probably 1 quarter lab in her. Not half, but a little bit. Or a pure one. We're not really sure. You might not be able to see it in the pics, but she looks almost exactly like shiny's shadow.
I'll have to disagree that shadow is a pure pit, I think she is mixed quite honestly. Not that many vets are well versed on the fine diffrences between various breeds and such, but a pure pit, no I wouldn't think so for a moment.
Me either, Icy. No to mention she has lots of lab charcteristics. She LOVES water, always carries sticks around, she likes to 'retriever' things, and always chases small animals. I can jsut see the hunting/retriever in her.
I wouldn't say she was a pure bred there is definitely some mix in there. But regardless if Shadow is a pure bred or mixed she is a special dog who is loved very much and that's all that really matters.
Our Shadows do look a lot alike! My husband and some friends were talking today about how they thought that my Shadow might have some lab in him. I was told he's Amstaff, but if I remember correctly he was a rescue, so whatever he is isn't documented and set in stone. I don't know if I think he's got lab in there or not. I am terrible at that stuff. Maybe True_pits can look at mine too? There's a bunch of pics on msg#20 here. http://www.terrificpets.com/forum/17929.asp
I wasn't trying to hijack your thread, but they do look so similar. It would be interesting if they are actually the same mix or both pure. I am so bad at guessing breeds that I couldn't give a good opinion on either one. LOL
I hope her surgery goes well. We will all be rootin' for her!
