Yeah maxipoo it was the same thing. I have to admit that i did get interested in one breed of dog though. The caucasian mountain dog. I looked it up and found a good breeder up in NY. It will be 1,800 for a pup so it will be a few years before i can get one.
shiggs` not only do I know very well of the breed you are speaking of, but I also know of the breeder in NY you are talking about too. I hope you realize that the CMD is a dangerous breed to expose other people to, and other dogs too. Is that part of your draw to them? This IS NOT a breed that you want to put on a chain in the back yard and if it gets into a fight with one of your pits you will probably be burying your pit. They are dog aggressive. You would never be able to have a male with you male pits. The is far, far too much dog for even most experienced dog owners.
If i got one it would be a female first off and second it wouldnt be on a chain in the yard because how would it protect my house? Besides my yard is split between males and females with fencing in between. My front yard is split from my backyard. Ive been researching the breed all day. I know about its temperment. What drew me to them was first that they are gorgeous. Second thier personalitys. If you truely understood what kind of neighborhood i lived in than you would understand what draws me to them.
Well I highly suggest that you spend more than 1 day and research both the sides of opinions on owning this breed as a pet. They are recommend as estate guardians, not 1/2 acre lot guard dogs. Did you know that it wouldn't be unheard of for one to jump through your living room window to attack someone or something that he would view as an intruder or someone standing outside purposely aggravating/teasing him? The way you describe your neighborhood, couldn't this happen? How sturdy is that fence of yours? I just hope you realize someone, maybe an innocent child, could become seriously injured or killed by accident by this breed being in the wrong hands. This breed does not belong in town, in neighborhoods, etc.. What if it got loose by accident? It would not only be a threat to other people's pets, but PEOPLE as well.

It will be a few years before i can afford one of these dogs. Next summer im suppose to go to NY to visit family so i was thinking of going up to meet the breeder and see the dogs. I have plenty of time to research the breed. I know its not something to jump into. Thats the reason you socialize the dogs. My fence is plenty sturdy. I should know i put the thing up myself. Im not worried about owning one. I think it would be an amazing dog. I wouldnt have to be afraid to walk the road at night. Or of people trying to break into my house. I wouldnt have to be afraid of people stealing my dogs.
Oh come on we all know what drew shiggs to this breed of dog. And why would it not be tied up to an axel in your yard you already admitted that is how you keep your pits "with game", what ever that means.
You like their personality, huh? Then tell me a few things about their personality. Save the $1800 cost for the dog and use it to MOVE if your area is that bad. And since your area is so terrible, why on earth would you even WANT to walk down the road at night? You must be a pretty big and strong girl. You put up your own fence, and it's sturdy at that. You "sink" axles in the ground to chain your dogs ( by the way "sink axels in the ground" is male terminology - most females would say "bury", I don't know that I believe you are a female) you cover your dog houses with sheet metal, you work in a junk yard. I'm going to be honest with you - something about you just does not add up. You are hiding something. Maybe you are not who you say you are or whatever. I don't know what it is but you are hiding something that is bad. Spare me the "oh I don't want to say to much because where I live you have to keep your mouth shut blah blah blah". Nobody has asked you your social security number for crying out loud. If the people around you are as you portray then I imagine they steal and sell computers, not use them. So how would they be spying on you here? I have even spotted one indiscretion with you that I just ignored but now I'll mention. Once someone posted some links for site pitbull poster graphics and you commented that you would use some of them yourself. Well where would you use them? Remember, you don't have a website? How old are you?
