I started this blog so I could post pictures of my boy but now that I’m here I feel the need to tell his story. I have always been an advocate for pitbulls, being from Chicago the shelters are large and filled to capacity. I have always taking the throwaways, ones that were truly broken. I heard about a brindle pup that needed love and care and a chance to heal. At approx. 6 months old he was used as bait, then shot and thrown in the garbage, after a few days he was finally brought to the shelter near death. They did everything they could to save him and that included a complete amputation of a front leg. I went to meet this little brindle boy and fell to my knees when I saw his injuries , and then fresh off of surgery he made his way into my arms and that sealed the deal, he was mine never to be hurt again. That was 5 years ago. It amazes me the capacity for love and trust they are able to retain, he is a loving boy that never, ever gives up. He has enjoyed a little too much food and needs to lose weight. He has developed osteoarthritis in his elbow and is having a lot of pain. He is seeing a rehab specialist and will be fitted for a brace and if need be a cart. He is going to start swim therapy and hope that helps. He is a fighter in the true sense of the word, he has the heart and never, ever gives up
