Well, I've had a new one next door for about 4 days, I finally got to meet her. I've been sleuthing from the window. She's a large pitt.... I don't know my pitts, but she's the size of a boxer and her jaws are Huge!!!! I met her today as the owner took her for a walk and I went out. He " rescued" her, he says. Has her with a 4" leather studded collar chained to a dog house... the chain could pull a Mack truck.!!! It's about 6 feet long. She looks like she's has alot of litters or may be pregnant again. She was loving with me, but owner says she is VERY aggressive to all dogs. I've noticed her bothered by flies and they were all over her....he said he was going to give her a bath. Question....can I suggest something for the flies ??? She does have water, doesn't bark much but gets little attention. I'm so sad for her !!! He sounded like he might be bringing in another white rescue pitt. One she tried to kill when they found the two. Grammy's upset !! I'm not afraid of her now ( though the space between her jaws has to be 7 " ! ) I just hate to see a dog tied up like this. The neighbors are private folks , so I don't feel I can say much. Guess I just have to keep watch....I see her from my 'puter room window....so watch her a lot !!!!
