Wednesday Pet of the Week

This is Max, a purebred American bull dog puppy..he is about 3 months old and a happy guy...he is growing fast and will be about 75-80 lbs when full grown so needs a big yard or lots of walking.
American bulldogs have much the same temperment as their English cousins...loyal to their families, stubborn, and a little silly sometimes, at least the one we had growing up was but so loveable...Max was given up as his family was moving and they couldn't take him with them.
If you get the Animal Planet, and haven't watched the TV show, "Its either Me or the Dog", please check it out...Victoria Stilwell is the trainer and much of what she says makes sense. Depending on where you are, you may find this show on another station, you can also find episodes on YouTube
she does have her detractors, but all in all, she is good....depends on what type of dog training method you go by....the Dog whisperer, Cesar Millan is good too
which is on the National Geographic channel and there are episodes here on YouTube
I think you can get good information from both trainers and if I had a dog that I was training, I would watch both.
if you are interested in Max or any of his friends at the Sun City K-9 Dog rescue, you can find out more by clicking. This rescue is the only nokill rescue in the Menifee/Temecula valley, donations are gratefully accepted and are tax can donate through Paypal on the website...thanks for all that are helping, last month they were able to get needed vet care and supplies through Paypal donations alone...
