elderbulls

Gia. Age 9 (ish). Lives in Pittsburgh, PA. Likes = love and hugs. Hates = dog fighters. On August 4th 2011, a suspected dog fighting operation in Pamlico County, North Carolina was raided (the property owner has since pled guilty to charges). Among the dogs seized from the operation was 9-year-old Gia. She was severely emaciated and nursing what was thought to be her sixth litter of puppies. Her teeth were nearly non-existent and had either been intentionally filed down to the gum line or worn down by excessive chain chewing. The Humane Society of the United States aided by Hello Bully volunteers were her saviors and relocated her and several other dogs to a temporary shelter where their chance at a new life would begin. On September 10, 2011, Gia’s road trip from North Carolina to Pittsburgh began and in the early morning hours of September 11th I finally got to meet the Elderbull that was going to spend her golden years on my couch. She was underweight, dirty, tired, severely anemic and fighting a blood parasite, but she was perfect. Her tail was wagging the moment I saw and has not stopped since. Today, Gia is doing remarkable well and all of her medical issues are essentially resolved. She has reached her ideal weight and manages just fine without teeth. She gets along well with her two brothers (an almost 10 year old pit bull and a 10 year old Doberman) and has started taking classes to become a certified therapy dog. Despite being heavily scarred physically, she has truly proven to be a “lover not a fighter.”

I musta mixed up the arthritis meds and the #CrazyPills this morning?! Either that or #YoungLiving RC, really stands for Really Crazy and not Respiratory Conditions. #MissPiggy is full of energy and ready to go this evening.
She’s a sweet girl and I wish could keep her but she truly deserves a home where she can be out and lounging. She’s available through @alamocitypitbull. Check out their Facebook page to find out about #Fostering or #Adopting any of our dogs.

It’s amazing what arthritis meds and what #YoungLiving #RC #EssentialOil can do for pets?! #MissPiggy couldn’t even begin to jump on the couch when she first got here. Now trying to contain her excitement and literally #JumpingForJoy because she has a home environment.
Miss Piggy still needs a foster or a Fur-ever home. Head over to @alamocitypitbull to see how to #Adopt or #Foster.

Kilo. Age 12. Lives in Staten Island, New York. Saved his owner’s life in April 2012 when an armed burgler, disguised as a FedEx delivery man, tried to enter the house to rob him. As reported in the New York Daily Post, “My dog stuck his head out the door, and that’s when he shot him.” His girlfriend was sure Kilo would not survive, and she told him, “Hold him in your arms. Let him die in your arms.” But Kilo’s owner said, “I’m not going to let him die.” He rushed Kilo to the South Shore Animal Hospital, where an xray showed the bullet entered Kilo’s head but never penetrated his skull. “This is like one in a million,” said Dr. Greg Panarello, who operated on Kilo. “He’s very lucky.” Kilo is now home with his owner. The hospital’s staff was so impressed, they put an “S” on his bandage for “Superhero.” Dr. Panarello said, “He’s a really sweet dog.” Kilo is back at home recovering with his owner.

This is the kind of life this little girl needs && it’s KILLING me that as her temp #Foster, I can’t give it to her 24/7.
#MissPiggy is #Adoptabull through @alamocitypitbull. She’s an #Elderbull who just loves to snuggle and get loved on. She does have some issues with her hips, knees and a spinal problem but that doesn’t stop her?! She loves having my JJ as a companion dog. She would do best in a house that has one other dog with a submissive personality preferably female. She also needs a lot of love and attention.
