13. My first foster was a pitt. I was afraid to have her for a few weeks even at 8 pounds. I went online and did research. I cried that night looking at images and learning how much these dogs need to go through to get them to fight back. We fostered that baby girl and it has been two years. She is the loving dog, calm and patient around tons of kids and to everyone she meets. She is the socialite of doggie daycare (goes a few times a month).
14. Ask professional invisible fence-like companies. The dogs that need additional assistance after getting the shock correction are pitts. This is because they are so sensitive that they won't go back out in the yard.
