All in the Family


American Pit Bull Terrier / Labrador Retriever

Me and my fiance (who is now my husband) decided we wanted to adopt a puppy. We had thought about it for a while and finally decided it was time. So in March of 2009, we headed out to the animal shelter. We weren't quite sure how to get there, so we stopped at a gas station to ask for directions. As we pulled into the parking lot, we saw a woman carrying a tiny little white and brown puppy. My husband said "She has a puppy so maybe she knows where the animal shelter is." My husband asks her about it and the lady said "You may not have to go to the shelter. I found this little girl under the car over there all by herself." My heart broke for the little puppy. So little, and who knows where the poor baby's mommy was. We went inside to see if maybe the employee at the gas station owned her or if she knew where the puppy came from. The employee had no idea. So the lady who had found her under the car handed us the little girl and said "Here's your puppy". I held her in my arms the whole way home. She stayed cuddled against me, whimpering every once in a while. Whatever kind of home she had before this must not have been a very good one because the puppy smelled strongly of cigarettes and she was very dirty. Once we got her home we gave her some food and water, a nice bath, and she started to open up a bit. She was running around the back yard, so very playful. We decided to name her Bailey. We made a vet appointment for her for the next day. The vet said she was a healthy, pitt-lab mix, only about 9 weeks old. Now, our little puppy is an 8 and a half month old, not so tiny puppy. She is our little baby and we couldn't imagine our life without her.

That is such a heartwarming story. It sounds like a fairytale! I'm so glad you gave little Bailey the love she deserved, and I'm so, so relieved she didn't get run over in that dangerous, scary parking lot! She is such a sweetheart, and I wish her a happy, healthy life with you!

Thanks all! Yes, not only is she lucky, but me and my husband are very lucky to have found her. She's changed our lives and we've only had her for 6 months. I don't know who could have left her there or what they were thinking but they sure missed out on an awesome dog!
