Dear Eric,

My name is Isabella and I am 13 years old and I admire you so much. I have always wanted a dog and i love to research on different breeds.

The pit bull is my favorite and I have talked over getting a puppy from you. I have a sister and our favorite is Romey (the baby).

I have read just about every story you have on your website. The story about Sugar was very sad, it must have been very hard for you.

Well my parents have said that we can get a puppy in the spring, and I will surely consider you and your pups.

When I get older I want to be a veterinarian. Your stories and memories that you share on your website are truly inspiring to me.

Once again I admire and appreciate what you do for all these dogs.


I know that many people assume that pit bulls are bad dogs but when I am older I want to have a shelter just like you and change their minds.

In my free time I come onto your website and read the stories you have. (I also look at the puppies hehe) you are like an idol to me. Thank You :)

Love,

Isabella Rose


Well, all I can say is a sincere "thank you" to Isabella from everyone at SPBR.

SPBR is a legion of people with a passion for pit bulls (and somethimes other breeds!) who honestly believes in the beauty and character of this breed.

Oftentimes, we wonder, "Are we really making a difference?"

Well, Isabella, you have confirmed that.


From the August day in 1997, when I first met my Spud (at left), fell in love, and adopted him in an Upstate New York shelter, I have been transformed by this breed.

So, to Spud, to Melinda, to the forum, to our adopters and to the the almost 2 million viewers of spbr.org in the past 4 years, many like Isabella...

... thank you. Thank you for giving us -- SPBR and its many dogs -- a chance.


"When I was young, my ambition was to be one of the people who made a difference in the world.

My hope is to leave the world a little better for my having been there."
