tree dog

From Ayse's parents..

Just wanted to share with you that we discovered Ayse is an arboreal pit bull. She absolutely loves to climb trees. We found out one day when Rudy was walking Ayse past a tree, and all of a sudden, Rudy's arm (attached to Ayse's leash) suddenly raised up into the air.

Ayse apparently spied a squirrel, and ran up a tree before Rudy knew what was happening! This was during Ayse's fun time on her walk (not obedience training at that moment). Well, Ayse has been climbing trees ever since. Thank goodness we always keep her on a leash, otherwise, she would keep going up and up and up.

We love Ayse. Thanks again for her!

(We like Rudy's face as much as Ayse's face here. YeHaw!)


  1. Of COURSE it would be Ayse who would turn out to be an arboreal pit bull! Too funny. And thanks to her owners for the updates on that spunky gal!

  2. Wahoo! I feel better about my own arboreal dog... once we literally had to have the fire department collect her from a tree... another lesson learned about negative Flexi leash impacts. Thanks for the update!

  3. hello search and rescue dog, anybody??!!

  4. Wow, that's quite a substantial tree. I had some adopters tell me that pit bulls can climb trees "like cats" and so I learn that everything you read on the internets is true!

  5. This letter from Ayes's family makes me so happy -- it sounds like they are all having fun. Love the pic, too! Please let us know how other adoptees are doing, if you hear from their families.


Thanks for your comments, questions and feedback!
