Athena and Jeffers Story....

Someone had mentioned my posting this story so here it is.

When I decided it was time for a dog, I researched for pitbull rescues in my area. I came across Spindletop and found several dogs that I was interested in. But, when I scrolled down and read Athena's story all of that changed. I called Spindletop and found out that she had been there about a year and a half. Of course I thought, no one wants a one eyed pitbull. So I told the lady that as long as she was nice I would come by that weekend and adopt her. Once I got there I met Athena and she was a timid little sweety. She gave me soft kisses by touch me w/ her nose and some times barely sticking her tongue out. Then the lady said "It is too bad you can't take two home," (I lived in an apartment at the time) "b/c she shares a cage w/ her boyfriend Jeffers." So me being the softy that I am, I asked to see Jeffers. He came up to me wagging his tail w/ his tongue hanging out, stood on his hind legs w/ his back to me and licked my face! SOLD to the sucker!! I only took Athena home that day b/c Jeffers had to be fixed. She was miserable until the day I brought him home. I have never seen a dog so happy to see another dog. This picture was taken right after I brought him home and they both calmed down a little.

Now here is the link to Athena's story and pictures. Please do not look if you have a weak stomach. This was an abuse case.

You have some sweet doggies there , but I think this should be moved to the Lounge because this is the Cat Chat section .

Oh what sweet babies and a nice story. I'm so glad you could give them a good home.

I hope to adopt from a pitbull rescue when I finally buy a house. I had to leave my APBT with my ex. I miss him like crazy every day!

I love your dogs (I have a soft spot for Pitties anyway). How wonderful that they get to live with you!

you are a sweet sweet sweet person! Coming from dog rescue I can tell you what an AMAZING thing you did, especially taking in both dogs. They look so happy! Isn't it amazing how abused animals can still love and trust humans? It think dogs (and cats) have a lot to teach the world about loyality and love.
