This spunky gal has got to have one of the most dramatic stories we've ever encountered.  It all started in the back woods of Louisiana.  I was playing with my dogs in my yard "out in the swamp" and a truckload of good ole country boys pulled over.  They heard that I was the one with the Pit Bull rescue and needed some help.  They had rescued a female Pit Bull from some not so nice guys.  In their attempt to save her, they realized the only place to put her was in the back of their truck but they tied her in thinking that she would be safe until they got her home.  Yes I probably would've done things different but I'm not going to fault these guys for trying.  As they were driving home,  the dog jumped out of the truck and was run over by their very own truck.  She injured two of her legs, one of them pretty badly.  They rushed her to the vet and after hearing how much money it would cost to fix the broken bones, etc, they didn't have that kind of money. So they found me and we drove down some backwoods road to get her.  Indeed she was pretty injured but despite the pain she must've been in, true to a typical Pit Bull, she was in great spirits.  So we took her to the vet where she received all of her medical treatment.  After watching her hobble around with her cast and her little butt wiggle non-stop, I named her "Country Girl" after the Luke Bryan song.  Though she has healed from the actual surgeries, she now is getting ready for physical therapy.  Country Girl is an absolute goofball.  Nothing upsets her, nothing stops her from having fun.  She is both up for adoption and also for sponsorship to help pay off her vet bills and physical therapy. If you're looking for a well behaved house companion but also someone who will make you laugh and keep you entertained, then Country Girl is that gal.

    I noticed that country girl was the only dog nobody had left a comment about, so I just had to sponsor her cos I just can’t resist an under dog. I live in Cardiff the uk otherwise I’d be volunteering all my free time at Villalobos. I have a pit/staffy mix that I rescued, shes very animal aggressive which has gotten us both into a lot of trouble but at home she’s the perfect angel and I would never give up on her. Tia-Marie Torres I am in awe of the selfless, relentless work you do and you should be truly commended. God bless you and all of your family, cats, dogs and parolees x

    I have ordered a large dog bed from Kuranda Co.
    They said it will ship next Monday or Tuesday which I guess would be December 3rd or 4th. Please use it for Country Girl – however if there is a dog there in more phsical pain or injuries please use it for that dog – I don’t care where it is used, just where it will alleviate the most pain for one of your rescued animals.
    We hope you and your familh had a joyous Thanksgiving!!

    This little sweetheart seems like the perfect little girl. Its so sad to hear about what happened to her but it seems to have made her a stronger dog. I wish i could adopt her but right now I don’t have the space for any kind of pet. Well, if she is still around when my husband and I get our own place, you guys will be hearing from me. Best of luck Country Girl.

    God Bless you for all you do, I just lost my American Bulldog Sheba of 14 years this past February. If it wasn’t for my work schedule I would adopt in a heartbeat. Just know that everything you do matters as i am sure you do. THANK YOU for all you and your family do. If things in my life change I would like to adopt one of your precious animals.I hope my small donation can help.

    I love this dog, she is absolutely beautiful. I am sponsoring her and I hope that will help a little bit. I have a pitbull but not enough room for another dog. I would love to adopt you and if i buy a house with a big yard, I will do so!

    Aw this sweet darling, Tia I hope you get to read this message because I want to tell you how amazing what you are doing is. I am only 13 but I want to have an animal rescue when I am older, actually I have already started to save money for it. I live in France but I was born and lived my first 8 years in the U.S.A.
    I felt your pain when you couldn’t have the rescue in the “Enchanted Forest” because that is what I dream about for my rescue. Please continue saving this wonderful breed and I wish I had the money to sponsor these amazing dogs.
