We are new to the breed. Emma is 5 months old and has taught us alot. We are not first time dog owners, our old boy passed away from a heart tumor at 12 years old. We have learned that there are puppies,then there are pit puppies. Already ate a bed, a toy box, LOTS of toys are important, Two solid oak bar stools. Pretty much anything she can. She is sleeping now, Farts in her sleep! STINKS! The best part are the kisses, worth every thing. Play ball and get kisses, Get up in the morning and get kisses. Wouldn't trade it for anything.
