I had to put my 8 year old male pitbul to sleep, it was tough. I just bought my kids an Old English Bulldogge (12 weeks) and she is a little lover. She learned to sit The 2nd day I had her, and she loves to be around her family. I have to walk out into the grass when she goes to the bathroom, and when she is done, she sits right by me. I just can't believe how smart she is, amazing.
