Cool Hi Guys & gals!!

Just came accross this site by luck and was reading some of the postings and I was glad to see there is such a site where people can post comments, ask questions and generally talk about dogs in general.

I have been rescuing dogs for 10 years and will remain amazed at how many people give up their dogs for the stupidest reasons. I think I've heard them all at this point. The big thing right now is dumping the pitbulls. I had placed one a while back, when Ontario passed their law, and she is being returned this week. I honestly believe it has to do with the by-law they are passing (or passed) in St-Leonard. This dog was adopted to a truly 100% italian family and I get the feeling the parents convinced her to dump the dog before she gets too attached. It is so sad, as this dog, Xena, is such a sweetheart. If anyone knows pitbull lovers who want to help this girl, go toSophie's Dog Adoptions.

Hello there and welcome!! I've never seen your site before. Do you do this on your own?

Xena is a beautiful girl. Is she listed on Petfinder anywhere? If not, I can put her on my site and get her more exposure.

good luck

Just to let you know Ontario has not passed the law concerning pitbulls.We are still writing government and protesting.So maybe let your family know,there is a very good chance the law will not be passed in orignal form.Tell them to get involved the CKC,OSPCA and many others are all organising protests and letter writing campaigns.

Thumbs up

She is a beauty. If I had my house already I would take her. I plan to rescue a dog when the house is ready. I just hope Capone will be ok with it. He hasnt shown an inkling of dog or human aggression so we will see. I hope she finds a home soon.
