My rescue mutt named Ada, pit bull/lab mix, has been feeling left out of the action lately...I think she wants me to put away the seed catalogs and pay some attention to her!

Your dogs look like they are related.

Yes, it's amazing how much pitadors from completely different backgrounds look and act alike.

It is indeed. This one is not mine, but one I lived with and loved very much. She needed all the attention. One day, I woke up with her like this next to me, under the covers and everything. Not sure how she pulled that off. I miss her so. Mutts are awesome!

"Pittador." I love this!
Although mine is more like a "pittadork."

She's stubborn, loveable, protective, playful, brave, dumb, and downright goofy.

Right up there with a "Great Pyratolian"  :-)

I am hoping that when I move out of the city, that I have farmer neighbours with LGDs. I have seen Komondor mixes, Great Pyr mixes, Anatolian mixes, all gorgeous, and if from working lines, reliable.

For companionship, though, I would have no issues going the rescue route. While I have some worries about stability and reliability in some specific cases, especially around small livestock and children, you never leave your children unattended with a dog that's not completely known to you, regardless of lineage. Even with a Newf, the original Nanna from Peter Pan, I would need to know the individual and have witnessed their play before I would be comfortable being out of sight.

Pitadors are gorgeous little sucks.
