    That puppy is so cute I saved it to my harddrive... and I'm not a "puppy person."

    They should have some sort of shelter dog redistrubution service. Cute puppies like that are slim pickin's around here. Doing a quick BCSPCA search, I found 16 pit bull results and 2 Amstaffs in the entire province. And it's updated very often and that included mixes, and most didn't even look like pit bulls. And ALL were adults.

    Another 16 or so results for puppies. And it's springtime. And NONE were as cute as that guy.

    Go get him!!! He wouldn't be too hard to rehome I don't think.

    You know you wannnntttt him. :p

    Hey, Jules . . . is his name, by any chance, "Foster?" ;)

    Those are some seriously woeful eyes. No Pittie should ever have that look :(

    I have just contacted the shelter- if nobody will pull him...well. You know. But I really do not want to. I honestly do not have time for a puppy that age- I don't have neighbors I would trust letting him out during the day. I can come home in my lunch break for about 30 minutes and then maybe take him to a day care somewhere close until Dan can pick him up.... but there is so much going on here that I would really dread it.

    This shelter is so sad. They are trying to to their best- but they get so many dogs in every day. The shelter is only about 10 minutes from my work, so I have been thinking about volunteering and walking dogs during my lunch breaks (which I can extend to 1.5 hours).

    I'm glad he's getting a happy ending.

    Sometimes, for whatever reason, the salt-of-earth kind of animals stay in shelters for wayyy tooo long. I'm sure he'll make someone a good dog.

    I'm so happy to hear this. Hopefully he gets adopted soon so you don't have to pull him, but I'm relieved to hear he'll get out of there safely one way or another. If you do end up pulling him hopefully you'll either fall madly in love and find a way to make it work, or find him a wonderful home. Please keep us updated :)
