Hi! My name is Deezy aka “Mr. Pit” and I just turned 5 years old. Here’s my story…
I grew up in a fairly quiet household as a puppy and had a ton of energy. When I was about 13 months old, my original owners had a baby so they couldn’t keep me and decided to take me into the Michigan Humane Society in Detroit.
That day, as I was being dragged into what could have been my deathbed, it just so happened that a couple of college guys were looking for a dog to adopt. They had looked around and didn’t see any dogs they were interested in. They were on their way out of the shelter…and then they saw me. I was coolest dog they had ever seen! (Check out the white on my chest that is shaped like a cross!)
My original owners overheard the comment and offered me to the two guys who immediately accepted. Luckily, I had all of my shots so they took me home right away! They didn’t even have to go through any paperwork or pay a fee for me!
That was in March 2008 and my life have been awesome ever since. The guys who adopted me brought me into their two-bedroom apartment and I was wild at first; I even chewed through a door!
As time went on, I became calmer and got used to the environment. Luckily I was able to socialize with tons of people and many other dogs.
A couple months later, the one roommate took me with him to a house (I loved that place!!) and he officially adopted me!
Two of the other people that lived there bought pit bull puppies who were brothers and we would play all the time. There was also a huge “Colorado Pit” named Dezel who I enjoyed playing with.
A year later, my Dad graduated school and moved to a new house. Although I’m the only dog here now, I’m pretty happy. I like to hang out with the labs at my grandparents’ house when my Dad goes out of town.
Last summer I even learned how to swim (with the help of a doggie life preserver, of course!). At first I was scared to jump in but now I LOVE IT!
In the winter time, I like to eat snow and curl up on my dog beds. I’ve also been known to try and climb on people’s laps.
If I’m lucky, my dad will give me a piece of string cheese, my favorite snack.
Thanks for reading!!!
