Bought a 5 month old American Pitbull yesterday at the local pound. He was part of a cruelty case, his parents where bread to fight and had to be put to sleep. They found him and 4 other brothers left for dead in the backyard. They where without water and food and all had protruding spines,pelvis, and ribs. Apparently he is 5 months but is physically and mentally 3 months. When they found him a month ago he weighed all of 10lbs
they nursed him and now he is up to 20lbs, but reading through his medical history is the saddest thing i have ever read, they recorded everything from the day he got in, such as him falling off a bench and hurting his leg, blood in his stool, diahrea, and skin problems. The sad part is that i honestly spent all day there yesterday trying to get him (9:30 am to 4
m) back and forth trying so hard to get him, i suppose me being 20 years old tattoos and trying to buy a pitbull must have raised some red flags. They where trying everything in their will to keep me from getting him, but needless to say i got him! I was determined. But honestly this is why these pitbulls dont have homes, because they make it impossible to get them. I know he has health issues, and i could find a perfectly healthy one but i want HIM. I already went to a specialist and had her look through his medical history and her only concern was the skin issue, she then assured me with medication and everything (IF he has mange or demodex) i could be walking out spending under $100 tops. The vet at the pound was telling me $700-$800 to make me change my mind. Other than that the specialist said with the right nutrition, love, and care he will be just fine
. Usually i wouldnt take a dog that could possibly have problems, but when i asked to look at him the vet gave me the low down on him, all of his brothers where stronger and where all sold, but her way of putting it was "he is like the left over stuff after, an after christmas sale and no one wants him" after hearing this i had to buy him. I get to pick him up at 4 today, right now he is getting neutered. Little did he know that he was gonna wake up this morning and get his boys snipped off.
