Some of you may remember me talking about the dogs I rescued. A neighbor abandoned 7 dogs (5 were pups). I have had them since about the first 2 pups died of parvo, and I got the third one through it. One of the dogs is a full pit, the mother of the pups is pit/lab, and you can tell the pups have pit in them. Have to be careful about finding a home. All the dogs are young and very sweet (also very smart). The local rescue organization here would not help...told me to take them to the pound (the pound immediately puts down dogs with any pit in them, regardless of disposition).

Finally Brother Wolf in Asheville said they would help me with placement. A few weeks ago, they took 2 of the pups. I still have 3 dogs waiting (plus my own animals). Also...the pups had red mange, so had to get treatment for that.

Between vet bills and food, these dogs are really draining me. My good samaritan thing is costly. They are such sweet dogs, I just want them to have a good home and a good life. (Anyone out there want a dog?)

This is getting so expensive, thought I would ask if anyone would like to contribute anything toward the care of these dogs.

Hate to put this put this out there. Sometines trying to do the right thing is a struggle.

I already have two dogs and a 2 1/2 yr old daughter and recently had to rent my house and move into an apartment because of recent money issues. I might be able to take one though, I'll have to talk to the wifey.

Sounds like too much for you too. Don't think you need another dog at this time.....but nice of you to consider. :)

Thanks. They are really good dogs. Susie, the pit (brindle) and Dolly, lab/pit mix, have both been to work with me. Dolly is here now. I work in a facility for adult with developtal disabilities. My cottage has 24 folks who are older. Both dogs do great with them. Lucy is the younger one...about 6 mths old now. susie still less than a year old...and Dolly...maybe 1 1/2.

try craigslist. I had a cat I found on the side of the road. I put an ad on craigslist and the first person that called took it home. I got 8 other calls after that if I had more kittens I could have found homes for them all. U may get so many calls you can be choosy about who you put them with.

BE VERY CAREFUL PUTTING ANIMALS ON CRAIG'S LIST!!!

Animal Labs cruise Craig's list to find their test animals!!!!!!!

Very terrible life ending up as a lab animal. They pose as ordinary citizens, so me even pay people to get free animals off Craig's list. Most shelters and rescue groups know what to look for and won't give animals to them.

So be very careful who you deal with if you advertise the dawgs on there!

Have to be even more careful with dogs who have any pit in them. Brother Wolf has a very good screening process. They do a home visit...make sure the dog has a good home and is a good match.

This is my first experience with pits. They are such great dogs. Both of the dogs I have taken to work just love everyone. As I said, they are quite a hit with my residents. I think they are therapy dog material. Can't believe how these dogs are so badly abused by some people. Can't bear to think about it.

Wish I could help, LP. I have four animals now. The two dogs and the cat don't take up much room, but the giant squid is killing me.
