Angel Apatche

American Pit Bull Terrier

Apatche came to me many years ago. He was born in a litter of 16. His biological mom was unable to care for all the pups herself. She was losing tremendous weight and an immense rate. She was on the verge of dying. Her owner had to make an intense decision by either killing off half of the pups or finding someone to be half of the pups foster carer. He called up my mom and she eagerly took position as foster mom. Apatche was in the litter and we weren't planning on getting a pup. My mom and I bottle fed the pups 2 at a time. They sat in her lap as I held the bottles in their mouths. My mom held and warmed the pups as they ate just like a mother dog would. I was happy to be doing this. The pups were given to us at 3 weeks of age. Their eyes weren't even open yet. As the pups grew older, I signaled out my favorite. A small white pup with a brown eye patch on his left eye. As it turns out, he was the biggest one when they were all 2+ years of age. The pups were given to approved and loving family households where they lived 10+ years. You should alreayd know the story of Apatche. When my mom and I left many years ago on a 2 day trip during the blazing summer, we left Apatche with a house keeper. He loved the housekeeper dearly and despite his natural instinct (along with some added force) to guard our house and the people in it with his life, he took a liking to the housekeeper. Anyway, she left him out all day on one of those two days we were gone, unintentionally I hope, and he had a heat stroke. He lived a good 10 years with us and had a blast in doing so. I AM TRYING TO FIND MORE PICTURES OF APATCHE IN OLD PHOTO ALBUMS SCATTERED AROUND THE HOUSE. I CAN'T GUARANTEE ANY MORE PICTURES THAN THE ONE PROVIDED. BUT IF FOUND, I WILL ADD THE NEW (YET OLD) PICTURES HERE. THANK YOU.
