Sweetie Pie is a 2 year old Boxer and Pit mix (I think). I got her on 10/25/08, she was a stray who came and never left. She was at home her first day. It was like she lived here forever.
She likes to run and play with our other dogs. She loves to give air kisses, upside down kisses and more kisses. I named her right. She loves us all. She especially loves Kayley our 5 year old. Sweetie kisses us good morning. If we let her she would most likely kiss us all day long. We love her, love her, love her.

Pits really are one of the best breeds around. I took in one that was suffering from parvo at 3 months of age. We doubted she'd make it but she's 17 now with a hip problem that barely slows her down. She still jogs/walks at least 2 miles a day.
I almost lost her when she was 5 because a tree branch had fallen during a storm and busted a large window...right before I was moving cross country! I searched for at least 8-10 hours a day for her while my hubby packed. I put up flyers w/ her pic and we offered a $2,000 reward but declined to say she was a pit for obvious reasons.
I finally got one strange call from a man telling me to meet him somewhere and follow him home. Then he realized how psycho that sounded and told me his wife was with him, etc. All he kept saying was "I have your dog" even though he didn't ask me a thing about my dog.
I followed them and sure enough my Wendy came running from their backyard to greet them...until she saw me and jumped across the hood of my car to get to me! The couple she "adopted" also had a pit and understood exactly why I put my ad the way I did. Although they really wanted to keep her they knew she had a great home.
They even refused the reward money but finally did accept some gifts for their pit...and a new door handle because Wendy tried to chew their back door handle to get into their home! LOL
That is a darling picture! I know that Sweetie Pie is a great joy to your family, as you are to her. Her showing up at your house has made all of you, and her, very happy! Give her a big kiss from Missy's mom and God bless you.
