At Bully Breed Rescue, we encounter a lot of dogs with stories that break our hearts...neglected, abused, injured...we do indeed see it all. Often though, it is the dogs most used and abused that remind us exactly why we rescue in the first place. There is no better example of forgiveness and the true spirit of a Pit Bull than our adoptable dog Mama aka Charlotte. We can honestly say it was love at first meeting - the very first thing Mama did was give us kisses and roll over for a tummy rub. How could this wounded dog love people? The answer? This is the true spirit of a Pit Bull - forgiveness at it's finest and love that knows no end.
Mama was brought to Bridgeport Animal Control, nearly dead, with wounds consistent with use as a bait dog for dog-fighting. We will likely never know who did this to her, but we do know from her physical wounds and scars that she endured years of abuse. Part of her ear was ripped off and her wounds were so severe that the vet had to make her a new ear canal so she could hear. It is also clear that she was used for breeding, over and over.
Within the few weeks that Mama has been with us, she has proven to be simply amazing.
Mama Charlotte is loyalty and courage in one compact Pit Bull package. This little lady may be missing part of her ear, but she is lacking nothing in the personality department. Her heart knows no limits. Her love is strong and true. She loves to sit in a lap and gives kisses. She has forgiven those who hurt her, even if we have not. Mama loves to give hugs, and do doggy yoga! Her favorite place to be is close to you. Mama is fantastic when meeting new people, and just wants to say hello and kiss your face! If it were not for her very noticeable scars, you wouldn't even know this poor girl was so badly abused.
Mama is about 4 years old and she is a beautiful example of the breed we love. The true spirit of a Pit Bull. When we fight the stereotypes, the abuse and the neglect, we fight so dogs like Mama will never have to fight or be used as bait again. Despite her past as a bait dog, she likes other dogs and is great friends with our adoptable guy Koda. She does best with dogs her size.
