On April 11th, 2012 Lunenburg County RCMP after much investigation initiated a bust at a Lunenburg County home. A female pitbull was seized as she was being used as a guard dog. Enroute to the local shelter the pitbull gave birth to 7 beautiful puppies.
Oakland Veterinary Hospital took Mama pitbull and her babies into their care and began looking for homes. “Mama” was very underweight and scared, but after just a week at the shelter she had put on weight and was far less timid. She (Mama) is absolutely gorgeous a rich chocolate brown color with a white diamond on her nose.[frame align=”left”][/frame]
Thanks to Facebook, all 7 babies have found homes. But Mama still needs a home. If you are interested in Mama, please contact Oakland. 902-531-3117.
I’ve always been a sucker for a hard luck story and the underdog. My heart is bigger than my head most of the time. And when I saw Hope on Facebook, I fell in love. (this is not the first time I’ve fallen in love on the internet)
I have so much to offer her. A big back yard. A warm, safe home. The ability to pay her medical expenses and keep her shots up to date. A mature “big brother”, in the form of Toby, my 9 year old chocolate lab, and truly my best friend in all the world. Lily (my rescue cat) age 6 will be unimpressed. She’s very much a Diva although extremely laid back. The chaos of a new puppy will be too much for her, and she’ll prefer to watch her from the back of the sofa. (she forgets that she was once a rescue too)
Hope comes home in just a couple weeks. I’ve got an outdoor dog run coming (Toby is trained to stay in the yard.. plus he wouldn’t leave my side if you coaxed him with steak), an indoor crate ready for crate training and my big sappy heart just oozing with love for her already.
Before I met her for the first time I knew what I would name her. Pitbulls have a bad rap. They are judged by their breed, doggy racism. It breaks my heart but at the same time I have so much hope for her (and us). Like people, pitties just need a little lovin’. I’m about to prove that with Hope.
They have puppy play date each Saturday for a lot of other “underdogs”: Pitbulls, Boxers, Grey Hounds, German Shephards. We intend to go each Saturday for lots and lots of socialization. We’ve got the skills, the love and the time. And if we need help, we will ask.
So please, help me welcome Hope. Our beautiful Supernova Media mascot and the new love in my life.
