.................Here is my situation . I had to have my Akita put to sleep about 3 weeks previous because of old age as he was in his 12th. year . I said I wasn't going to get another dog for several months but I am feeling very alone with out a 4 legged friend to share my life with . So , I'm riding thru town and I see this lady planting small plants and this absolutely big and beautiful Pit Bull that is a Buckshin color all over with an enormous head and neck . I ask my buddy to circle the block and he pulls up and I talk to this young lady about her dog . Of course , I ask her if he is Friendly :worship: and she says..."Yes , Of course" and then she takes him off the cable he is tied to ...After I've gotten out of the Car and I'm trying to remember IF I've got an Extra pair of Skivvies in my Mess Kit maybe . This house is alot higher than the street and she is standing on the 3rd. Tier and I'm at street level as this "dog" comes bounding toward me and tries to lick me to Death . He has the sweetest disposition of any dog I've ever met . So , we get to talking and she is trying to place him in a home with some one like me who will treat him and love him as much as She obviously does . She raises Pits with Good temperments ...NO fighters , ever . She has lots of folks wanting to buy him , which she suspects might be for fighting purposes and so she is looking for a good home for Him . She had this dog since he was 6 weeks old . He is well mannered and responds to her commands . ........................I'm wondering if he would adjust to a new owner (she says Yes , definitely) , how Can I tell if he might develop Hip problems later on( he is 20 months old) and IF my 4' 6" field fence around my 5 acres will keep him in side . She feels that because he is so friendly and because of his beautiful confirmation that he might be stolen so I'll have to build a dog run for him before I bring him home with me . She has agreed to give him to me when I'm ready after I get his dog run finished . Also , he gets along very well with Any breed of dog so she has socialized him very well . I've Never owned a pit before but this particular dog has changed my WHOLE attitude towards the breed . I want to bring this guy home with me and become his friend . So , are there any other issues here that I need to be concerned With before I bring him home ??? thanks , fordy..
