All in the Family


American Pit Bull Terrier / Labrador Retriever

This is Tonto! And truth be told, he's just too cute for his own good. I got Tonto from this man outside of town. His dog had just had a litter of puppies, and I was horrified when I saw the condition all of his animals, especially the mother, who was chained to a tree with no food or water, and was dangerously skinny. So, I called the police and gave an anonymous animal cruelty tip. Poor Tonto was bloated with worms, malnourished and bony, and had fleas and mites. For the first week, I couldn't get him to eat, which worried me. Some of my friends didn't think he would make it. Now, I've had him for a month and he's just as happy as a clam! He's happy and bouncy, already walks on a leash and knows "sit" and "speak". He loves to go for bike rides... well, he rides in my backpack, I ride the bike. He loves to eat ice cubes and prides himself on finding the grossest things outside! He barks at himself in the mirror and his favorite toy is an empty water bottle. We're still fine tuning potty training, and he's still learning what's ok and what's not ok to chew on. But anyways, he's a great little buddy and I'm so glad he's mine!

Tonto is beautiful! Bless your heart for saving him. I hope the mother and her other pups were taken care of as well... amazing how heartless some people can be, if only they could be treated the exact same way to know what it feels like... good grief!
