Skyla: Luv-a-Bull Pretty Pittie Princess
Posted on January 20, 2019, at 5:32 p.m.
My husband and I raised Skyla since she was 8 weeks old. She was a pit bull (the runt of a litter of 8 and only white pit bull) and she had the ideal situation for her breed growing up. Her dog mom and brother lived diagonally from us in her early years and our first niece was born 2 months after Skyla was born. Skyla was socialized very early to be around animals and people of all ages (babies/puppies thru senior adults/dogs). We raised and showed Skyla nothing but unconditional love and that is what she gave to everyone she encountered. We couldn't be any prouder of her, as she was a true ambassador to her breed, and defied the stigma of all pit bulls being aggressive and dangerous. Skyla loved to dress up and would only kill you with sweet puppy kisses.
The only challenge we faced with her (outside of skin allergies) was the prejudice of other people because of her breed... many in our own neighborhood until frequent walk encounters changed many of their perspectives. We never had a single incident reported in over 11 years of her life. We had to put her down (9/21/18) due to cancer and that was one of the hardest things we ever had to do. She gave us nothing but immeasurable joy and we love and miss her every single day, but we have SO MANY treasured memories and take comfort in knowing her spirit is still with us. She will always remain in our hearts as "
