Male pit needs new home

    Hi guys,

    I'm researching and joining pit bull forums in hopes of getting some advice.

    My brother in law has a pit bull that he got from a friend who was neglectful, never trained the dog, and was quite possibly abusive. For the most part he's energetic, wants to be pet, and is typically very sweet. However he is sometimes uncontrollable and is unpredictable. My brother in law has tried to work with him and takes him on daily 2 hour walks. We also had him fixed, which has helped a little. However, my brother in law lives in a home with his young nephew and elderly grandmother and they don't feel that the dog is safe enough to have around them.

    We know the dog should not be adopted to an inexperience dog owner, or even an experienced one, but rather only an experienced pit bull owner. Therefore we're worried if we bring him to a no kill shelter, he'll never be adopted, and we don't want to surrender him to a shelter that is going to put him down.

    I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions in terms of programs, or pit bull rescues, etc that I should look into, or if there is anyone here that would be interested in taking him or knows someone who would be.

    His name is Maximus, he's about 3 years old, and we live in the Bay Area in California.

    If this isn't the correct forum for this, someone please let me know!
