I've always been a people person, and in 2007 I had multiple organ failure. I was sent home weighing 89 pounds and was unable to work. Depressed about being home alone all day, we decided to go pick out a shelter dog to keep me company and give my spirits a boost. I sort of had my mind set on a pit bull, there are always plenty (too many) up for adoption and I have a loving home with a big backyard. When I got to the shelter there were a lot of beautiful pits, but I noticed the little guy sitting quietly in the corner. He had the cutest underbite and didn't make a peep. I called him over and he came, sat down and licked my hand. We took him out to play in the yard at the shelter and we knew then he was ours. We took him straight to the pet store to buy the things he needed and he totally owned the store when he walked in with his head held high. He has a HUGE personality and thinks he is 10 feet tall and bulletproof!

Over four million animals are put to death each year in the U.S. alone because they are abandoned and unwanted.
