Story
This is my love and this is the hardest thing I have to do. My baby name is Bruno. I got him when he was 3 months old from a family friend I’ve known since I was a child. So I know the parents as well. They were well cared for also. I got him during a time I needed companion due to my fiancé passing away. He is a family dog that loves children and other animals. Everyone that sees him wants to pet him. His demeanor is calm in the home but when he goes outside he has a lot of energy and line to run and play. Mostly because I work from home and he is in my apartment a lot. He is on schedule with feedings which helps me with the bathroom breaks for him. He does not bark unless he wants something. He really is the chillest pit I know. He doesn’t have an aggressive bone in him. Not that I’ve seen anyway. I am looking to move very soon because my family has outgrew out current apartment. I’ve found it very difficult to rent a unit that allows my baby to be there. I did a great job on my 1st

Story
Peanut lived with an elderly woman until that woman passed away. We assume she lived a very calm life. We have a home with 4 kids 2 other dogs and a bird. We have just to much going on. She gets very scared when kids run around and play with other dogs. Shakes and get scared and has bitten the dog and one of the kids because of this. She is getting better at the potty training, we assume the woman just let her go where ever in the home. She is getting more regular and we have been using diapers. SHe is very sweet and cuddly most of the time. She has great hair, you can style it to look however you want.

Story
Frankie's mom passed away and he was given to us. We already have 3 dogs and one of our dogs is not willing to accept Frankie into our pack. He is housebroken, loving, and extremely smart. He has CKC registration. Frankie loves to run and jumps like a bunny around the yard. He walks really well on a leash. Unfortunately, he has not been exercised regularly because his mom had health issues and has a tendency to be a jumper and nips when he jumps sometimes. He has a strong prey drive and may not be suitable with small pets. Because of his large size, he will need someone knowledgeable with training, patient, and loving to adopt him. It is not recommended to have him with children, the elderly, or someone of small stature, (not because he's mean, he's BIG and gets over-stimulated because of the lack of regular exercise.) We love Frankie and really want him to be rehomed with someone who understands his needs and how to fulfill them.
