A Shining Pittie Example! October 1, 2011

Posted by Dana in Uncategorized.

A couple of years ago, Rachel found a female pittie discarded at a local dump like trash with two pups in tow.  She took them home and began working on finding them homes.   A few days later, Rachel’s son was surprised to find a fresh new litter of pups in Mama’s crate!  This “fertile Myrtle” earned the name Venus, and she graces one of the posters we use at our adoption events.

Because Rachel didn’t feel like she could provide the proper quiet environment for a new mama and a litter of tiny newborn puppies, Shirley Thompson from Alliance for Responsible Pet Ownership (ARPO) volunteered to take them on.  She was able to place all the puppies, but Venus still remains in her care as a foster.

I was SO HAPPY to read on Facebook today that Venus has received her Canine Good Citizenship Certification from Indy Pit Crew!!  Here is a dog who was literally discarded like trash, and because someone believed in her and cared for her the way a responsible owner SHOULD, she has become a shining example of what a pit bull CAN BE in the right hands!  Congratulations to Venus and Shirley!!

Shirley Thompson stands proudly beside her foster, Venus, a Certified Canine Good Citizen!
