Kim, I really hate to say anything negative about you after what you've been through and accomplished, but the episode with you and your dog was painful to watch. You say that you don't want to contribute toward the negative stereotype of pit bulls, yet that's exactly what you've done. You, unfortunately, are the perfect example of someone who adopts a cute puppy without regard to what their DNA requires in a pack leader, aka...owner. Then, when speaking to the dog trainer, you discuss rehabilitating the dog, when there's NO trouble with the dog, it's you who's entirely too soft (weak) to be able to guide him. I'm sorry to sound exactly like Cesar Millan, but that's the whole story in a nutshell. Please, I beg of you, if you love and want to keep that dog, you need to change your energy and take charge of your home. It's entirely a reflection of how you take charge of your destiny, and your dog will respect you for it, fall in line, along with most everything else. PS....you're either a leader or a follower...which would you rather be? (yes, I'm a dog trainer, Licensed Vet Tech and Dog Whisperer disciple).
