Precious the Pit Bull was found wandering the streets, covered in scars, flea-ridden, suffering from an injured leg, and to top it all off, she had recently given birth to a litter of puppies. Given her horrible condition, it is no suprise that she was a bit hesitant when first approached by rescuers.
It took time, but as we all know, a little TLC and soft voice can go a long way. Within minutes of being rescued, this defeated poor soul sprang back to life accepting all of the belly rubs her caretakers could give.
Pit Bulls have gained a bad reputation because of their use in dog-fighting rings. They are even banned in some counties nationwide because they are considered to be a dangerous breed because of this! In reality, Pit Bulls are just as loving and sweet as any other dog breed when they are raised by responsible, caring guardians.
Thankfully, the tide on their reputation is slowly turning and many now realize that a breed doesn’t define a dog — a dog defines itself! One thing is for sure, Precious rules. Watch the video to learn more about how you can help her!
