Bio: Irie had a bit of a rough start as stray mother of a newly born litter of pups. She was picked up by animal control and taken to her local shelter where she was adopted by her new mom at the age of eight months. Despite her rough start, Irie has proven to be a wonderful companion to her mom and the other pets that she now shares her home with. Irie loves being a good advocate for the Pit Bull breed, showing that with proper handling, love, socialization, training and most importantly lots of exercise that these dogs can make great companions to the appropriate people.
