So did I until I got to know someone in the Greensboro area who owend Championship BMDs. After talking to her about getting a pup and what BMD ownership was like we totally bailed on the idea.

They are not built for our climate and they can become quite a handful in the warmest months when its dangerous for them to be outdoors but they don't have a way to expend their energy. They can become quite destructive after a few weeks of not being able to get out and run. She would actually travel with hers in July & August to relatives in cooler areas so that the dogs could be outside without risking their health.

You see people who have them in this area so its not like people don't find a way to make it work but I just couldn't do it.

Because domesticated animals can get a job and support their family, while humans are just completely helpless and at the mercy of domesticated animals for their survival.



I guess my friend who was left in a dumpster when he was an infant could help it? I come from a single mother home and I know for a fact making ends meet isn't the easiest thing in the world. GTFO with this hippie BS.

I'm glad domesticated animals were there to rescue him. You guys should have gotten a pet dog to help ends meet.
