"Accepting deposits now for Christmas puppies," classified advertisements read at this time of year. Are you considering getting a dog for Christmas or thinking about giving someone else a puppy as a present? Do pets make good Christmas gifts? (please click on Link above and read this before you decide to give an animal as a gift)
***As a surprise gift - dogs and all pets for that matter, should be considered family members and not as objects or gifts. Never buy a dog for someone as a surprise. Getting a dog for someone that is not prepared or in agreement with the adoption may cause the animal to end up in a shelter or in a home where he or she is not wanted.***
Pit Bulls are stolen more than any other breed. Do not leave your Pit Bull unattended. Make him an indoor pet, outside is for play and potty.
BACK YARD DOG
You want to know why it is important that your canine buddy be part of the family and in the house as part of the family? This is what happens to back yard dogs...matter of a fact, this dog is NOT a backyard dog but was left in the back yard when a friend was keeping him for his momma: Yep, some idiot with pure evil in his soul poured acid on this boys back. This boy is a beautiful soul that loved everything and everybody! PLEASE KEEP YOUR DOG IN THE HOUSE AND SUPERVISE PLAY AND POTTY TIME!
Breeding is AGAINST THE LAW in the City of Dallas and punishable by law if they have no permit. Most people who breed are what we call "Back Yard Breeders" and know nothing of breeding producing animals that have genetic disorders and deformities, taking away from the true bloodline. They over breed their females and don't provide the proper medical care for the pups as well as the mother. If you know someone who is breeding please dial 311 and file a complaint or email us with the address, name (if available) and phone number. Please help us stop the overpopulation of animals!!
