Pit Bull Good Will Ambassador

Elsie, a Pit Bull whom called the Western PA. Humane Society home for seven months has not only found a wonderful home. When Becky saw Elsie, she said it was love at firsts site. Herb, Becky’s husband was not so accepting of the new addition to the family being a pitbull.

Shortly after Elsie move into her new home, Herb was diagnosed with cancer. It did not take long for Herb to change his mind about his new pitbull dog member. Elsie was the only one that he actually wanted to be close to him while he was receiving his chemo treatments. Becky said, “She lay across his chest as he slept on the couch and was the best medicine he could’ve asked for,” Herb is now in remission and doing well, and is nuts about Elsie.

After Elsie shows off for people, she acts as the perfect ambassador for the Pit Bull breed. Many claim “Meeting this sweet dog has completely changed my perception of pit bulls.”

Not only that, Elsie and her dog-mom have been selected as the third-quarter winners of the ASPCA Adopt-a Bull contest. The contest features successful adoptions of Pit Bull terriers made at shelters which are made by using the Meet Your Match™ program. Her win gave the Western PA. Humane Society a $4,000 grant and Elsie and her “mom” and the shelter are eligible to compete for the grand prize in the “Vote for Your Favorite Match” online contest to be held in February, 2009.

It is always nice to hear stories of Pit Bulls being placed into good homes. As a Pit Bull lover myself, it brings me much joy to hear stories of these dogs and how they really are amazing pets and companions! Stories like this one are great for changing the perceive many people have of Pit Bull dogs.

Pitbull Myths and the Truth

Pitbulls are amazing family dogs. Have you seen a full-grown Pitbull? You probably will agree with me that this stocky, muscular, and big dog will make your spine chill. I will not blame you, you probably have seen stories in television, newspaper and probably have heard of banning of Pitbulls in the United States. However, if you want a friend, a very loyal friend who will protect you and your family, you need a Pitbull.
