What is your main reason for joining the group?

I am passionate about helping animals in general and dogs in particular and am interested in activities that address the many difficult issues animals often face.

Please give us some background on your dog(s). Age? Where did the dog come from? What past training have you done with your dog?

I adopted my first foster from WARL 9 years ago and currently have 7 other fosters - 6 of those are pits because they often have the greatest need.

Does your dog come from a puppy mill or hoarding situation?

No answer yet


I am a volunteer and foster parent for multiple rescue groups in the DC area. I try to take dogs no one else will - too shy, high energy or aggressive, which means I get a lot of pits. I am also volunteering for "The Pit Crew" at WHS (DC shelter).
