Miss Luca Adelaide!
Can you believe how gorge she is! She is a little (ok 50 pounder!) Pit Bull we rescued from the shelter.
Now before you say are you crazy! A pit bull. They are vicious killers! I am going to give you a link to a quiz and and a website so then I feel like I have provided some education about this sweet breed then I want you to come back here and finish seeing our girl!
We went to the shelter looking to meet three other dogs and none of them were a match for us. We need a dog that is pretty non-reactive to other dogs because we have dogs on either side of us. Our other pit bull used to run the fence with the sheep dogs on our one side but Miss Luca could care less. She sits outside and looks at the sheep dogs going crazy over her presence and I am happy to say SHE is the one who behaves well. SHe lays there and lets them bark. I think I did see a thought bubble over her head that might have read "Sheesh! Have your owners give you some manners training!" But that just might have been me reading too much into it.
We also knew we wanted a dog that wasn't jumpy or crazy active. She mostly does this....
and this! But when she gets outside, boy will she run and bound with you!
I attempted to get a close up of her cute face but she kept doing this...
and this! I am not good with subjects that move!She started to learn come and she already is great and sitting. Laying down did not need to be taught.
She comes out of her shell every day and I just feel like we got a diamond that no body could see except the shelter staff. She spent two months there and they suggested we take a look at her and I am so thankful that they did. She was the dog that they took to all of their community outreach events so she is pretty nonplussed by crowds. She is also the one they used to test other dogs on thier dog reactiveness. Did that make sense? So that helped a lot in the decision making process as well. The staff was so happy to see her go home with us.
Can you believe how sweet that face is?
What do you think?
Always being renewed,
