Hope this is not against the rules here.... If yes,, sorry. I lost my 9 year old dog to cancer Dec 9th (brindle pit-bull). I am finally ready to get a puppy and I can't find a puppy that is healthy. I decided to ask the WERA BBS for help. -The shelters within 100 miles don't have any pit-bull pups (glad to see empty shelters but bad for me). -I can't buy a pit-bull from some shady Craigslist adds with dungeon basement pics or with a scared puppy in front of a dilapidated shed. I am afraid I am supporting animal cruelty and/or crack heads. -I want a puppy with his nuts on him (not neutered) at least until 9-12 months of age. The shelters near me are neuter/spay at 10 weeks old. I can't accept neuter/spay until the dog finishes growing. If I am wrong, please fire away. If I am right please respond with '..deez nuts..' to cheer me on (I love a '...deez nuts...' thread). -My wife insists on a pit-bull or bully breed which I am OK with but she does not want blue or all white pit-bull. I did find a breeder within 3 hours with a beautiful litter of pups but wife says no blue/white blaze. If you know someone reputable please send me a message or comment. I am in Michigan and I am willing to drive up to 12 hours away if that is what it takes (assuming I trust the WERA member recommending this). If you are still reading.... I like pit-bulls because they are like a Toyota pickup. Nothing flashy/fancy but they just don't quit, run with minimal maintenance, and my wife can go jogging with less fear of being attacked/kid-napped (which is a big deal now that all the gyms are closed due to COVID-19 by me). THANKS in advance for the help!!
