My silly boy! His name is Jer-Z and I luvs him! We adopted him in June of 2009, he was born May of '08. Adopted him from Sheltered Hearts, a rescue group in Rougemont, NC that specializes in rescuing and rehabing pitbulls. I have had siberian huskies, rottweilers, shepherds, beagles, mutts you name it, this is the best most loving dog I have ever owned, even if he is a bit destructive at times.
He's still young so the happy happy HAPPY nature is still there and he can barely concentrate lol, but when he is focused he is super smart, often only takes one to two tries to master a command, amazing!
He was found wandering the streets of Durham, NC which is a really rough town. He was infested with sarcoptic mange and didn't have a hair nor an ounce of fat to his name. He was picked up by animal control in March of '09, a rescuer from Sheltered Hearts went to evaluate him and fell in love and brought him to the rescue center to give him the TLC he so desperately needed, he weighed just short of 30 pounds.
In early June we went out to eat at our favorite deli, Jersey Mike's, and then traveled to Rougemont to check out the adoptable dogs and fell in love with a dog who was, oddly enough, named Jersey. It had to be some sort of sign and we got him a week later.
Sorta renamed Jer-Z now our happy healthy pittie weighs about 70 pounds and gets two walks and two bowls of food a day as well as free range of our quarter acre lot, he is the happiest dog I have ever seen and I am happy to have him in my life :)
