Throwaway Pups 1-16-11

Writing this weekly column has seemed to bring good luck to every pup that we have featured! All three pups were adopted the same week their story was printed! We really hope we can keep the trend going when we introduce you to Brooklyn. She is a Pit Bull/German Shepherd mix, about 5 months old. She is a great girl with lots of love to give! She is great with dogs, kids, and cats. She would love nothing more than a human to love with lots of toys and a comfy dog bed. Please consider giving this sweet girl a chance. She has been with us for too long and is so deserving of a home to call her own!

This week we thought we would focus on a breed of pups with a bad reputation. The American Pit Bull Terrier seems to us, to be the one breed that people tend to shy away from because they have kids and are worried about their well being. Did you know: Pit Bulls are heroes! America's first war dog was a Pit Bull named Stubby. He earned several medals during World War I and was honored at the White House, a Pit Bull named Bogart saved a 4-year-old child from drowning in a swimming pool in Florida, and Dixie, the Pit Bull, was inducted into the Georgia Animal Hall of Fame after she saved some children from a Cottonmouth snake. Pit Bulls are also one of the most stable people-friendly dogs in existence. The National Canine Temperament Testing Association tested 122 breeds, and Pit Bulls placed the fourth highest with a 95 percent passing rate! Before you judge a pup by its breed, please take a minute to meet him, you may be surprised to find a loving and loyal companion for life!
