    Hello Everyone,

    I live in Indiana and in love with rescue dogs especially my pits :-) I own a pit/Rhodesian Ridge Back mix named Carter. I'm big advocate on rescuing dogs and showing people they can be trained and a great family dog. Carter loves to be trained and eventually I would love to have him trained to comfort returning or wounded soldiers. I'm also looking into fostering and volunteering for the local humane society. Great to meet everyone.

    Hi and welcome to the forum! You've come to the right place, you'll be in good company, as lots of us have rescue dogs (I have two), and we all love training! (y):cool: You have a wonderful goal for Carter, and fostering and volunteering is so needed, as you know there are so many dogs in need. Have fun on the forum, just jump in anywhere, and if you have any questions, feel free to ask, there are lots of people here to help.

    Welcome! If you have any questions, feel free to ask them here! There are a bunch of great dog owners on here who have amazing advice!

    It's great you rescued your dog! My 3 dogs, 2 cats, and even my 3 goats are all rescued! I foster for my local Beagle rescue, but my current foster actually isn't a Beagle. :p I also volunteer at the animal shelter once a month. :)
