Oh No!

This evening Isaac noticed the puppies crate was empty and dramatically proclaimed:
 "Oh no,...all gone!

It took all day for Isaac to notice, but at least he did notice that the puppies are no longer in our home as we returned them, this afternoon to the Rescue Mission,...a very sad, but necessary decision, we were misled about the puppies breed,...when we adopted the puppies two weeks ago,...we were told they were Labrador/Boxer Mix,...but when the puppies official medical papers arrived in the mail this week we were alarmed to learn that the puppies are NOT Lab/Boxer Mix,...they are PIT BULL MIX,...oh dear,...oh dear,...what a bait and switch, and what a heart break for our family,...and such sweet puppies too,...but we understand as these dogs mature their aggression tendencies can become more apparent and with a special needs child, THAT is not a risk, we are willing to take.  

Yet in many ways our two weeks with Little Lady and Buster was VERY positive, showed us that our household and Isaac could adapt very well to having dogs,...and that Isaac responded very positively and appropriately to the puppies,...

A bittersweet day for us,...but our perfect puppy search is just beginning and sooner or later,...Isaac will have another enthusiastic playmate in our backyard!!!

Until I post again,...may God bless and keep you!

  1. I appreciate your concern, but I blame dog fighting, improper training, and stereotypes for the aggressive pit bull image. Are they the bad dogs they always seem to be?
