Hi everyone,
Chris and I are happy to say that we've put in an application with Bullies in Need! We are very excited to help save a pittie from Ontario :) My question is..what insurance companies insure PB owners? We are in Quebec, so does that change anything? Thanks!

You can try this place. Their online application doesn't mention dogs.

Oh gosh!! That is absolutely fantastic!! Thank you so much for saving yet another life! :grouphug:
As for insurance, I'm sorry I can't answer your question. :sorry:

Bullies in Need had a wonderful dog on CP24 Animal House Calls Last week. Her name is Molly and she is 8 months old. Beautiful, well behaved girl. She looks like my baby Copper. I so wish I could have her. :love:

oohh can't wait to see pics of your new addition! Once again THANK YOU!!! :grouphug:

Yay, thanks guys! We don't have a specific dog in mind. We do like Savannah and Annabelle though. We want an older dog, our Monty who just passed away was not a youngin' and we'd like to help an oldie who is having more trouble being adopted. Although they all need help right now, so we are open. We just need one who will be good with Vegas first and foremost.
Here are links to Savannah:

I have State Farm home and car insurance and knowing that they don't discriminate makes me feel good that I am with them.

Nice license plate cover there. I assume that's not your vechicle.

Sweet looking dog. Congratulations and thanks for doing it.

thanks again twodogs! nope, not my vehicle, LOL!! we haven't met Ben. i just saw him on the Bullies in Need site. i'd seen him on petfinder before and tried to get more info but i don't think he was with BIN then. i'm waiting to hear how he is with other dogs and we haven't had our home visit. so we'll see what happens!

Boxerrescue,how could you possibly pick between those three??Although Ben with his wonderful grey face is probably the one most in need,I hope you get him and you are wonderful for saving a Pittie :love:

Thanks Chico! Well Ben is really calling to us, and we've always loved Staffordshire Bull Terriers, but we believe that Uncle Monty will send us the dog who is meant to be with us. So we'll see what fate has in store :) I am such a sucker for grey faces tho..

Whoever you choose will be one lucky dog,as was beautiful Uncle Monty,if only for 10 months :pawprint:
