Hey theravada and phaedrine--Maybe someone in your bulldog community is looking for another baby?
Olive is a lovely brindle and white Pit Bull mix who needs a home. She's currently living with one of my Veterinarians, who has been working with her on the leash (she now knows how to heel and doesn't pull, etc), she's house trained and lovely and friendly with her family, good with other dogs, if a bit too interested in cats, and generally just about the sweetest thing you've ever seen (pix tomorrow).
However. She's incredibly protective of those she lives with. She growls and even bites at people who randomly come up to her not-fenced yard in Corales. She'd be a great guard dog, and a very good project for someone willing to work with her, but she's got some issues. She'd need an inside home or a properly fenced yard and a place where she did not interact with random strangers without her owners present. At the moment, she's got an invisible fence that she runs through, and lives in a place where kids wander up to the house unescorted through her territory.
This is a pretty major thing. If we can't find a decent home for her, (and i love this dog to pieces) they're going to put her to sleep.
Please. If you know anyone who might want to take her in. The Vet who she lives with is willing to take her back if it doesn't work out...she's very much attached to Olive and doesn't want something bad to happen to her. Poke at your friends/acquaintances/'net folk. It really is a life and death issue.
