Do you own a pit bull or bully breed dog?

Yes, a yellow Pit Bull named Dexter and a small Min Pin Mix girl called Tika :) They're both on my profile photo!

Is your dog spayed or neutered?


What are you looking to get from LARPBO?

Just people that understand, love and care about the breed, people that want to create a better image to this wonderful breed that is so discriminated and misunderstood. Also want to help educate people that don't know a lot about the breed or think badly about them.

Tell us about yourself and your dog.

I'm a dog trainer, walker and I know some grooming, Dexter helped me putting a lot of my aggressive clients back to normal, he's a year and a half but he's a very calm pup and he's so non reactive which helped my clients a lot. We have a very strong bond, we did personal protection, agility, he knows cute tricks, did a little bit of freestyle dancing with him and we tried frisbee but he's not that great with it due to his back legs. He was around 4 months old when we got him from Santa Monica Animal Shelter and his litter mates and momma died due to parvovirus, he was going to be put down that day but he seemed too healthy to have anything so I asked them to put our (mine and my boyfriend's) names on the list for him and after 2 weeks they would call us and tell us how the tests went, his cerebellum did get a little affected by it which affects his back legs, he can't run like a normal dog or jump but he can walk just fine and he's really smart :)

How did you hear of us/find us?
