Yep and yep.
There are 16 dogs here now...and 12 are rescues...including four full-blooded Siberian Huskies and three Pits...and 14 are in the house. Well, the Huskies stay out all day in a nearly half-acre enclosure, but they come in at night and in bad weather.
Been involved in rescue for over 30 years. Heavy into it for the last 20, and up to my neck for the last 12. I've got bite scars from wrists to elbows on both arms. I've been bitten by just about every breed, cross-breed, and Heinz 57 you can name...but I've never been bitten by a Pit. Never.
The 1911? Well...It ain't exactly a Swiss watch.
