    Three years ago i had no intention of getting a Pitbull for a pet. Not because i thought they were aggressive but because I just did'nt NEED one in other words I used to only keep dogs if they earned their keep some how. Well One day I was going to go to the animal shelter with my sister because she was planning on adopting a puppy for her family. While we were there one dog caught my eye a year old Skinny blue and white male Pit. He was beautiful and layed in the back of his kennel looking at me with his head cocked to the side. When i whistles he wagged his tail very fast and ave me a doggy smile. After a while of crouching next to his cage and talking to him he came right up to me and smoshed himself next to the cage like ok pet me i love you and so i did and absolutly fell in love. I knew he was meant for me even though he was thin, had an eye infection, and had a thin coat from malnutrition he was perfect in my eyes. When i inquired about him with the women who worked at the Shelter she told me his name was Zeus and he was very shy and probley would not find a home. She also told me how Zeus was a abandonment case where he was left in a field with 12 other dogs and was fed very little and lived mostly off of feces and just did'nt do very well. I did'nt care i knew i wanted to take him home. And two weeks later after he was ready and healthy he came home to live with me in my home.

    I have to admit i was a bit afraid i had already 3 dogs living in my hosue with me and i wondered how Zeus would do with them. And so I had my sister be with me and hold Zeus across across the street while i brought each dog over to Zeus and they actually got along ok and so that was a releif. Zeus was friendly but he was shy no question about itand would often retreat under the couch when we would have company over. I had adopted Zeus when he was 11 months old it took him until he was 2 to truly come out of his shell and become the happy go lucky dog i knew he could be. He especially grew to love my nephews as much as my other dogs especially the youngest Caleb who is now 2 years old with Zeus who is three gonna be 4 in a week . I never thought i would ever get a pitbull or two pitbulls at that but Zeus changed my world turned it completely upside down. He's gotten me through depression and social anxiety and he's just my angel.

    Some things are just meant to be. That's a wonderful story - for all of you! Sounds like Zeus has earned his keep too. There are all kinds of "work" that dogs can do. . .
