It seems everyday people are more accepting of our dog. Using the Gentle Leader with him while on walks seems to help with his excited spirit. I wish we didn’t have to curb that excitement, but he does pull a bit and rush ahead when he wants to meet new people and pets–when people see a pit bull pulling like that, they think, “Oh, gosh, they’re coming to get me,” or something along those lines. But what they fail to see is his tail is wagging the ENTIRE TIME–and it may just be me, but when I see an animal wagging their tail, it’s a sign of happiness. 🙂 I have heard that people sometimes have to pay more for insurance, if you own a pit, as opposed to a lab or something else.
Keep us updated when you are able to get a pet. 🙂 Hope it all goes well for you!
