I just wanted to send out another update about our Animal Friends alum, Salvador!
So far, we have competed in 4 disc dog competitions through the Mid Atlantic Disc Dogs and Appalachian Air Canines and have done very well for just starting out. We have 2 second place finishes in the beginner division in spot landing and dartboard and have a best score of 26 points in freestyle placing 4th out of 8 teams.
We will be attending disc dog training at Pawsitive Vybe in upstate New York to hone our freestyle routines so that we can reach more people during next season to show them the positive aspects of pit bulls.
Outside of competing, Salvador is still a complete ball of energy and has so much fun playing ball, Frisbee and swimming. He has made many new friends both big and small, with both 2-legs and 4-legs. He has even had the opportunity to visit our grandfather while he was staying in the nursing home. Salvador was a rockstar with every person that wanted to see him.
If anybody is interested, I have all of our freestyle competitions on YouTube under Salvador the pit bull and he also has his own Facebook page under Salvador the pit bull. He currently has 88 followers as far away as the Philippines and Australia that track his progress through training and everyday life. Again, I cannot thank all the hard work of Sal’s foster family, the Papiks and Animal Friends.
