Loving this Pitbull dog is very easy but letting her go is very hard

It was yesterday afternoon while I was reading a book in my Nook when I heard noises from outside. I take a peek and see two people and a dog. I panicked when I see the dog because it is a pitbull and I know my little K is allergic to dog.

A lost pitbull dog found roaming on our road by the neighbors
It was a neighbor that leaves in the red house with her son. They were walking on the road when they see this pitbull dog. They were wondering if we lost a dog. My husband said we do not have a dog. They felt badly because they cannot keep the dog. The neighbors have ducks and cats. My husband decided to keep the dog with us.

The kids named her Maggie, what a sweet Pitbull dog she is
I am scared of dog and pitbull is the worst kind of dog. They are mean and vicious dog except for this dog. The kids name her Maggie. My husband thinks Maggie is still a puppy. She has black and white color and has a collar but no name tags. My husband thought that the dog was drop intentionally on the road for we do not know what reason. She is limping and maybe hit by a car or something.

She stays in the pool shed and has water, food and this blanket for the night
We fell in-love with Maggie right away. She is a very sweet dog. She has very white and clean teeth. My husband gave her water. She was very thirsty. My husband also bought some dog food in a can. She did not eat it. I do not know if she is hungry or she does not like the food.

My son found a new best friend 
My little K starts to break out as you know she is allergic to dog. I gave her two teaspoon of Benadryl to help her itchiness away. She still can see and talk to Maggie but not close to her. I wish we can keep the dog but unfortunately we cannot.

Giving Maggie a walk around the pond with myboys
My son really is in-love with Maggie. He plays with her. He gave him ball and Maggie chew it. My son throws the ball and Maggie gets it and drops it in front of my son. They are the new best friend.

I also plays with Maggie. She jumps right away and tell her to stay and no jumping. I took this picture of her when I was inside the house. She is in front of the bay window. It looks like she give me her smile. I also took picture of my son and Maggie.

My husband wants Maggie to go outside and walk around the pond. He put a rope attach to her collar but Maggie does not like it. She wiggles and carry the rope instead. We thought that she will go to the woods but she stays around the pond.

It is hard to let go of this sweet pitbull dog. Unfortunately, we have to say good bye to her. I know that my son is not happy when he comes from school. Around one this afternoon, a dog warden will pick up Maggie and will bring to the animal shelter. I hope that Maggie can find a better home and love her

Jessica - Where are you located at? YOu should try and find a local NO-KILL rescue to take her! The likelihood that an SPCA shelter will keep her isn't great. If you google "pit bull rescue" you're sure to find one in your area!! (We have 3 here just in Cincinnati!)

Also - Pit Bulls are not all mean dogs. It's all in how they are raised. You are seeing an example of a loving and sweet dog right in front of you!

I understand you cannot keep her because of your daughter's allergy - but please try and find a rescue that can take her rather than the warden. It's likely they may put her down since she's a pit (which would be so sad knowing how loving she is).

Best of luck - if you were in Cincinnati - I'd have phone numbers for you right away.

I hope that you find her a good home. Maybe you can get another dog? Or pet? She is a pretty dog!

Ahh that would be so hard to say goodbye! she looks so sweet! I wish you the best!

I'm sorry you have to let her go. That will be tough.

I totally agree with Heather though Pit Bulls are actually great dogs. In the 1800s they were used as Nanny dogs for kids. The thing about them is they are so easy to train, which means they are easy to train to be mean. My brother had a Pit Bull and that dog loved my son to death. If he cried Tank would go right to him to make sure he was OK. My son loved him too. Sadly he had cancer and had to be put down almost a year ago. We all miss him terribly.

oh dear, that is so nice of you to give her at least a temporary shelter until you find someone who can truly takes care of her, i'm sure your son will miss her and she is indeed intimidating.

Anna said...

Aww that is so sad. Yeah pitbull can be mean but just like what Heather Johnson said, it all depends on how they are being raised.

Sis not sure if you got my first comment wahh, if not please let me know..

Potbull is such a gentle and loving dog. But some 'animal friendly' people trained them for dog fight. That's when this breed becomes mean and violent. Seems your kid and Maggie are going well.

This story is similar to Hachi. Super loving and faithful talaga ang mga dogs sa amo nila.

I remember we had a pitbull which grows so big and very robust yet he's a very fun-loving dog. he lasted ten years with us.
it's a little sad you can not keep the dog. i hope that the shelter could find her a home to live with.
