Here is Tuco and his buddy, in a picture entitled,
"cute dogs in sweaters" --

-- his momma writes --

"Hello Eric -- Your website was recommended to me as I'm looking for a home for my 4 year old pit bull, Tuco. He is the most loving dog - a 55 lb lap dog.

He gets along well with my other 22 lb dog, however he seems to be a bit dog aggressive, but I don't know if this is because the little dog doesn't like to play with others so he gets protective."


"I will be starting a family soon, and I don't think Tuco should be around kids. I found him on the street in Baltimore about 3 years ago, so I don't know his background. It is a really hard decision to give him up, but I am hoping to find a good home for him.

I would like to keep him until someone adopts him, I just need some help finding the perfect home for him.   Please let me know if you can help.

Thanks for your time.   Kristen"


Okay --

-- so it sounds like little Tuco is being what he is -- a pit bull.

Pit bulls, through their breeding, have dog-aggressive traits -- this is more the norm than the exception.

Little Tuco was rescued from the streets by Kristen -- that is a wonderful thing -- and I am sure he was as handsome as he is now -- making his rescue and adoption quite attractive.

However, the dog aggression that pit bulls have is often more than people originally bargained for. It is important to know that dog aggression is not the same as human aggression -- and while dog aggression should be managed, human aggression in the breed is unacceptable.

So, for Tuco, it sounds like he's quite attached to his little sister, and that leaving his home will be hard on him --

-- the odds are against him -- he is an adult, he is a pit bull, and he needs a home --

-- can you help break the path this boy is going down? Will you accept him for his breed, researching dog aggression, specifically towards pit bulls, also?

If so, fill out an adoption application above!
