Besides this group, I also belonged to a site called Pitbullforum. I went to log on there last night, and sadly got a "Site is closed down, due to economic reasons and other issues".

I rarely went there anymore since I found Pets.ca, but it was a nice place to go to look at the members Pitbull pictures.

So, the folks here with Pitbulls need to start posting lots of pics of em, so I don't go into Pitbull picture withdrawl.

Please :D

Maybe some of the members could join pets.ca?

Hopefully "some" will find their way here, I have no way of contacting any of the PBF refugees to tell them about Pets.ca, but I do know there is a member or two from there here, that perhaps has a contact list that could pass on the info.

Unfortunately the site took on a bit of a nasty tone amongst some of the members there, which is why I went looking for a new online pet community. That's when I stumbled upon Pets.ca, it is by far my most favorite site.

Why do people have to get nasty. We all have our own thoughts and as long as no pets are being hurt, I don't see the need to be nasty. Just my opinion.

Sorry, your site closed down. Hopefully, there will be lots of pictures posted here.

Sylvie, I don't know why ppl have to get nasty, but it seemed more like a clique there anyway. Don't get me wrong, there were many ppl there that I learned a lot from and who could post without demeaning and judging others, but there were many that couldn't.

A few ppl there were critical of the fact that I have two female Pits in the same house. According to them I was asking for trouble. What they didn't understand or refused to acknowledge, is that I am a stay home mom. I work with my dogs each and every day, I dedicate 2-3 hours a day strictly to obiedience work. Yes having same sex Pits in the house can be a risk, I don't deny that, however I am not ignorant of the breed and I am always diligent. But some of the PM's I got, well lets just say they were over the top at times. One person accused me of being a "headline waiting to happen", strictly because of the same sex issue, with absolutely no regard to my experience and abililty. My Pitgirls have been together for almost 2 yrs now, without issue. That's not to say it can't happen, but again, I am here and always aware.

I think the trouble starts when you get "too many experts,with the my way or the highway" mentality. Some were so dead set in their beliefs, they refused to see that what worked for them may not work for others.
It got to the point where I wouldn't post on the boards except for the photography forum.

I think that happens on all websites. Some people are controlling and think their way is the only way.
