Shiloh is one of my naughties — that’s what I call my pit bull puppies (the naughties). I’ve known and nurtured him since he was a few days old. People usually gravitate to his brother, Marley. Marley is not as hyper as Shiloh. Plus, Marley naughtiness goes unnoticed because he does it more quietly than his chocolate brother.
I don’t let Shiloh’s wild puppyhood deter me from seeing how delightful he is. His affectionate ways are so infectious, he is eager to please, and he is very smart.
1. Shiloh is Very Affectionate
No one loves better than my chocolate naughty. He showers me with kisses, snuggles, and hugs. His love is so fierce, its overpowering. The wild puppy in him still takes over. He caresses your hair, face, and hair to the point that you need rescuing. He loves so hard sometimes it hurts — literally.
2. Shiloh is Eager To Please
Shiloh loves three things: treats, praises, and making me happy. Of course, all these three things work well together; however, his ability to please his human mommy and daddy outranks a treat or an attaboy. This reminds me how vulnerable he is and that I need to love him through his puppy stages.
3. Shiloh is Very Smart
We knew we would give this pit pup a good home from the start. He was and still is one of the best gifts we’ve ever gotten. He learns quickly. My chocolate bully learned commands like sit, wait, and high-five by the time he was five weeks old. Don’t get me wrong, that smartness also fuels his naughtiness. It increases the time you here “Shiloh!” throughout the day.
I have been a pet owner for over twenty years and my love for my pets grow more with each passing year. The more pets I get, the more I get to know them. The more I get to know them, the more I love them both individually and on a whole. Shiloh is my special boy — slightly ADHD if you ask me. That does not define him, it just adds uniqueness to his character.
He’s lovable, he loves to please his mommy, and he’s head of the class, that’s the reasons why I dedicate my morning gratitude to this adorable naughty.

Why PIt Bulls Aren't for Everyone
The pit bull breed requires an The more I get to know them, the more I love them. They need a lot of attention and continuous training when they are pups. While some say that you can’t own pit bulls with other dogs, I have. I’ve only had to rehome one dog, a rescue boxer that was lovable but terrorized my miniature poodle, Jada and my shih tzu, Khloe. He is now an only child that gets all the attention and space he craves. If you are not ready for the work, don’t get a pit bull. It is not fair to the dog.
