Just want to shout out to everyone. This looks like a very friendly and informative site and I look forward reading your posts. I hope I can contribute as much as I get from here. I have a 5 year old Amstaff who will be having puppies this coming heat cycle. I got her when she was 6 months old and I was not really prepared for what I was getting into, but I absolutely love her. Abba is my first dog and the learning curve has been challenging. I was really lucky to get her as a pet (and a show dog). She just fell into my lap thanks to a friend who was looking for a home. I never intended on getting a dog or that breed, but she turned out to be my best friend. I can't wait until she becomes a mom... she will be a great mom too.
