Update on Mildred

Update on Mildred

Adopted June 2016

Dog’s former name Hennipen

What are the best things about your dog?
Millie is filled with love and is such a sweetheart. She is active, smart and such a loving little girl. We love including our dog in all aspects of our life, and Millie never ceases to amaze us with how smart she is and how easily she adapts to all of her surroundings.

Tell us about your dog’s favorite activities, sports or training:
Millie loves going hiking and on long walks around the lakes. She absolutely adores going over to her grandparents house to hang out with her Doberman friends. Laying in the backyard on a nice day or lounging in her pool are also some of her favorite things. She loves car rides and any adventure in general. One of her new favorite things is accompanying me to the golf course where she loves to run/ride in the cart and has become a huge fan amongst the patrons and employees both. As a puppy she made great strides and grew immensely throughout her training at the K-9 Coach, we’re now extremely confident about Millie’s ability to handle and succeed in any situation.

Give us some examples of how your dog likes to spend his/her time:
Millie loves sleeping on her huge beds at the bottom of our couch. When she is not sleeping, you can usually find her in the backyard laying in the grass or roaming around watching the squirrels and birds. She is a very active dog who is full of energy, and definitely keeps us moving and physically active.

Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments to tell us about?
Millie completed her training and obedience courses at K-9 Coach and showed incredible growth and progression throughout the classes, we were very proud of that. She now is able to be off leash in the park when we play fetch or go on hikes, and stays by our side at all times. She is definitely one smart cookie!

How do people react to your “pit bull?”
We have not had one single bad reaction to our pit bull. She has been an absolute angel and couldn’t be sweeter when meeting new people. In typical Pit bull fashion, her tail goes 100mph and she loves showering people with kisses. When we set out to adopt through Save-a-Bull, we wanted to make sure that we did everything we can to be great ambassadors for the breed, and Millie has made that beyond easy with her sweet demeanor and her ability to follow commands. We love her so much and couldn’t ask for a better companion.

Does your dog have any nicknames?
Millie

Update on Pippin

Update on Pippin

Adopted June 2016

Dog’s former name Nicollet

What are the best things about your dog?
Pippin wants to be everyone’s friend. She loves kids, with the really little ones she knows to lie on her back and be very gentle. She’s very smart and easy to train. She loves sleeping on her back like a goofball! We are adventure partners, she comes camping, canoeing, trail running, and she is a great “crag dog”, a dog that hangs out at a rock climbing spot.

Tell us about your dog’s favorite activities, sports or training:
Pippin’s favorite things to do are to play with her neighbor friend Lucy where they go in the dog house together, running around and swimming by the river, and playing with her one-eyed pitbull friend Ozzie. And of course chasing deer, which her mom hates.

Give us some examples of how your dog likes to spend his/her time:
Pippin is goes from zero to 100. At home she loves to cuddle up and chew on a rawhide, or look out the window at squirrels and rabbits. Outside she is a maniac on the hunt for any and everything, whether the smell is real or imagined!

Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments to tell us about?
Only a week after I adopted Pippin we took her on a family canoe trip, she slept most of the time, but this year being older, she was much more interested in sniffing out the woods. She took a tumble in the river and swam though some rapids, after that she was happy to stay in the canoe! Pippin loves going on long trail runs with me, by the end of the longer ones it’s her trailing behind!

How do people react to your “pit bull?”
Pippin doesn’t look super pitty, but most people can tell she is at least part pit. Most people have been very positive, but Pippin loves people so much it is hard to be afraid of her! I get a lot of compliments on how good looking she is, good thing Pippin can’t understand, otherwise I think she’d be quite vain.

What other stories do you want to share?
Pippin loves to clean other dogs’ teeth. She will stick her whole muzzle in another dog’s open mouth and lick lick lick….

Does your dog have any nicknames?
Pippers, Gumba, Alligator, Pipps, Pippin Pooper, Bat Dog, Demon Dog

FAST FIVE with Pippin

1. Food: Piggy or picky? Dog food is ok, steak is better!

2. Dog beds: Sleep on or unstuff? Sleep on, until I find a good seam to rip open.

3. Travel: Car rides or car sick? Car rides, but only if I can look out the front window.

4. Water: No way or splash all day? Splash all day, unless it’s bath time, then no way.

5. Seasons: A day in the sun or a day in the snow? I get hot easily if it’s above 60!

Update on Livi

Update on Livi

Adopted June 2016

Dog’s former name Livi

What are the best things about your dog?
She is the BEST smuggler. She loves to be the small spoon.

Tell us about your dog’s favorite activities, sports or training:
Play, play, play. Livi loves to play any game with any human or dog. If she had her way, the playing would never stop. She also loves to cover her head with blankets, it’s the cutest!

Give us some examples of how your dog likes to spend his/her time:
Livi loves to snuggle with any human and her big brother. And luckily her big brother, Harrison, another Save a Bull rescue is beginning to warm up to her snuggles, although he’ll never admit to it.

Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments to tell us about?
Livi is so smart! She learned commands such as wait and back almost immediately just by watching her big brother. She loves going to the farm, unfortunately for her humans, her favorite thing is to roll in the stinkiest smell she can find!

How do people react to your “pit bull?”
Because she is a muscly blue low rider, people either think she is beautiful or are intimidated by her stocky disposition but she quickly wins them over with her sweet personality.

What other stories do you want to share?
Livi is so clumbsy and goofy she makes us laugh every day. She falls up the stairs often and sounds like an elephant wherever she goes!

Does your dog have any nicknames?
Livbutt

Stirling loves to play at the park with his humans…literally runs and climbs the play structures and goes down slides with them.

Update on Nita

Update on Nita

Adopted May 2016

Dog’s former name Nita

What are the best things about your dog?
When we adopted Nita, we decided that we would let her sleep in our room on the dog bed with her brother, Stanley. Nita does well at staying there the entire night; however, as soon as an alarm goes off, she jumps off her bed and into our bed. It is part of our morning routine for her to shuffle in between us (mom and dad) for morning cuddles. Snuggling with a pittie is the best way to start your day!

Tell us about your dog’s favorite activities, sports or training:
Eating and sun bathing. When she’s not eating or laying in the sun, Nita enjoys play dates with other dogs, playing with our neighbor’s children, hiking, and swimming.

Give us some examples of how your dog likes to spend his/her time:
Nita likes to do whatever her doggie brother, Stanley, is doing. She also loves our newly adopted cat and has been trying to befriend the cat for several months now (without luck). Nita is also a very good yoga partner (i.e. she lays on the mat and won’t move or she’ll lick your face and won’t stop).

Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments to tell us about?
Nita has accomplished the impossible – she has made her grandpa a pit-bull lover.

How do people react to your “pit bull?”
Everyone who meets Nita and “gives her a chance”, loves her. We’ve had a few negative encounters with individuals on walks or at dog parks but that comes with the territory of owning any bully breed.

What other stories do you want to share?
Nita’s life goal is to make sure every human and animal that meets her is her best friend. Before we moved, we went to a dog park nearly everyday
and she was known as the “hostest with the mostest.” There was an Italian Greyhound who was afraid of everything, so of course, it became Nita’s mission to befriend the dog. Within 30 minutes my bulky American Staffordshire Terrier and the skinny Italian Greyhound were inseparable. The other owner loved Nita because she was the only dog her dog would play with.

Does your dog have any nicknames?
Nita Bonita, Chunky Monkey, and Big Head

FAST FIVE with Nita

1. Food: Piggy or picky? Piggy

2. Dog beds: Sleep on or unstuff? Sleep on

3. Travel: Car rides or car sick? Car rides

4. Water: No way or splash all day? Splash all day (unless it’s a bath)

5. Seasons: A day in the sun or a day in the snow? A day in the sun
