I am in the same boat! Adopted a 6 month old baby girl from a family member, she told us the dog was an American Bulldog and then days later text me that the dog was an American Pitbull Terrier. Think she was afraid we wouldnt take her. She is so loving, since she is still a baby I will have lots of chances to socialize her and raise her as part of our family!
Congratulations on your new family member!
