BRIGITTE

Only a few days old, and this innocent little girl now named Brigitte (as in in Bardot), was almost dead before she got to take her first breath. It was just days ago, that a good samaritan brought us the newborn pup in a box. He had taken her away from some neighborhood kids who were running around the streets and showing her off as if she were some prize. In addition, she had a severely injured front paw that required immediate medical attention. We thanked the kind man and Bridget was put into a foster situation along with vet care. Within a couple of hours, the good samaritan returned but this time he had a woman with him. She jumped out of the car "screaming and hollering". Honestly, it was such a Jerry Springer moment that I couldn't understand most of what she was saying. Her story didn't match up as she claimed to "love her puppy" and "she had no f'n idea how those damn kids got her puppy". She began to hit the man/good samaritan, blaming him for everything and that's when it was apparent that she had other plans for this pup. When I refused to return the puppy to her, that's when the truth came out. She physically came after me, only to be dragged away by the "good samaritan" as she yelled…" I don't give an "F" about that puppy. I got 6 more at home that I can sell!!!". And they left. Sadly, word came back to us that the woman was seen selling the puppies from a box in front of a store just this past weekend. Though we don't hold much hope for these defenseless little ones, we can only thank the higher powers that they were watching out for Bridget. Though she won't be ready for quite awhile for adoption, you can follow her life each day as she grows into a little miracle. This is one very very special teeny tiny little gem.

    I am still stunned over the dog in Ireland that was put down because of ‘pit bull’ qualities. The dog was actually part bull dog. It’s canine profiling!

    We are suppose to be their voice, but with ignorant ppl, you can’t get them to understand that Pit Bulls are not a problem, their owners are. Any animal can be trained to be a monster in the wrong hands.

    I pray that Brigette gets a home with ppl who will treat her as a family member, with hugs and kisses.

    What a joy to be able to support such a wondeful organization that helps humans and animals of the most mis understood variety.
    Hope the move it well and goodly outta the way and eveyone is settled.

    Keep up the great work. Someday, God willing, we will all have homes of our own and resuce will be a thing of the past.

    It is unfortunate that you do not adopt dogs out of state if an owner has an existing pet in the home. I have three pitbulls, but would have love to have the chance to add this adorable little girl to my family. Keep doing what you do knowing you have my approvial and admiration.

    First off, love what you guys do! I’m making a change in my life that will bring some much needed stability, and I plan on following little Brigitte. There is something about that little angel that is working on my soul. I await every post to see her progress. And I hope this new situation will provide me the opportunity to try to be the one who gives her a forever home. I’ll be in touch and, again, much move and God bless!

    She is so cute I just can’t stand it. I can’t belive how someone could do that to such a cute little dog.

    Hi just want to say I’m enjoying see Brigette’s progress. I am in a simiular situation here. I foster for a rescue and they gave me a puppy 2 days old….actually 4 pups. The litter had eight so we split them to give them better care with two fosters, me being one. They were left on a fence post hanging in a plastic bag still with their cords attatched to them. The rescue figured they were only two days old! I now have the only surviving puppy named Hope! It has been a struggle keeping her alive but I never gave up hope on her and she is now 4 weeks old yesterday!
    I have loved every moment taking care of her & seeing Brigette is like watching my little Hope grow. She’s definately a little pit & so adorable!!!!!

    Oh my…my little girl looked at me and said mommy can we have her. my boyfriend fell in love with her. love to have her but can’t due to money problems.

  14. Marlee on August 16th, 2012 4:04 am

    It makes me so angry to know people care more about making profit than an innocent life. I would have loved to take all her animal privileges away! Keep up the good work. Marlee, Australia.

    I too am disgusted at the way people treat life.. whats worse is they do it to the precious babies both human and canine. I don’t see how someone can hurt such a precious thing such as life. These Pit Bulls are loving and the unfit humans make it bad for them. I love these dogs.

Got something to say?
