First Things First

Hello friends! My name is Arya, and I am a 10 month old pit bull.  I live in Arizona with my mommies, and a whole gang of furry pals!  I was adopted from a local rescue at 12 weeks old, and I have been loved ever since!  My goal is to help change the way people see my breed – we are not the monsters that the media often makes us out to be.  I am definitely a lover, NOT a fighter, as the saying goes.

I am a gentle soul, and I love EVERYONE!  Whether you’re a person, dog, cat, or mailman; I consider you my friend.  Mommy says I don’t know what strangers are, and I doubt I ever will!  I live with a big dog, little dog, and several cats.  I love them all very much, but I don’t think they are always that keen on me – I really like to lick their faces.

Since I was adopted, I have been “in training”.  I really love working with mom, and I am always eager to figure out what it is that she wants me to do.  I know a lot of commands, and I’m pretty smart (at least that’s what I’m told!).  I graduated from my puppy class with my trainer, Brenda, at Awesome Mannered Canines last year.  I am now taking a class with my mom every Sunday to work towards earning my Canine Good Citizen certification.  This is an AKC title that shows people that I am a well-mannered canine in my community.  I have to work very hard, but mom thinks I am almost ready to take my test!!

Mom also takes me loads of places for socialization.  I don’t really know what that’s all about, but it MEANS that we get to go to all kinds of cool places!  We like to go to dog-friendly restaurants every week, and I get to go anywhere that dogs are welcome!  My favorite places to go are Buzzberry, Julios II, and any pet store (they always have treats!!).

I hope you guys will stick with me on my journey, and help me spread the word that pit bulls can be loyal, loving and very CUTE dogs!

Love and licks,

Arya
