One of them was frightened to leave his cage. He Science Like Magic But Real shirt was really quite scared, and did all he could to hang on to the inside of the cage. We got him to our home and turned him loose in the bedroom, and he started searching the place. A little later, I was getting ready for bed and he came into the bedroom, hopped up on the bed, walked slowly over to me and gave me kisses on my face. I think he was expressing that he knew this was going to be a good place, and he recognized me as a good person. Since then, whenever he sees me going into the bedroom, he follows and jumps up on the bed and comes for some cuddles. He is a 26 pound marshmallow.
Jake’s mother and his 2 littermates were adopted right away, but no one seemed to want Jake. As a volunteer for the SPCA, I took Jake to an adoption event. Person after person inquired about him because “everyone loves a puppy!” However, as soon as they heard he was part pitbull, all the people shook their heads “no” and walked away. Driving back to the shelter after this unsuccessful adoption event, I felt so bad for this little lonely puppy. When he laid his little head on my leg and looked up at me with his big, pleading brown eyes, it was all over. I adopted him that very day. Even though he was a puppy at the time of rescue, he had his own personality, just like any other dog. When I brought him home, he immediately terrorized my 11-year-old Abyssinian cat, who had been the queen of the household up until then. Jake, the puppy, was 13 lbs and Jesse, the cat, was 8 lbs, but Jake tried to dominate. Fortunately, my cat was sly and put Jake right in his place. Jake still has a scar under his left eye to prove it!
