Awesome true story of hope faith and love please give a pit a chance they will change your mind forever the best breed ever I
This is Sandie
Sandie has a long and sad story and she is lucky to have people who had faith in her
Sandie was found in the middle of winter roaming the streets. She was malnourished and her ribs were showing. My boyfriend took her in but since he already had another dog was forced to give her to the pound. The guilt bothered him though, because a dog like Sandie, a mix with pitbull, very rarely get adopted and it was as if he had given her to a death sentence. So he picked her up again with the idea to find an owner for her.
In the mean time Sandie was brought to the vet to get a check up and some meds. Sandie was very snappy and would eat up a whole bowl of food in five minutes. Her belly was filling up. An appointment was made for her to be fixed. But when they got to the vet the appointment was canceled because she had to finish her meds. Another appointment was made.
The morning of her spaying appointment was a cold December day. She gave birth to a littler of six puppies.
Yes you heard me.
She was pregnant.
We had the idea she might have been, but every time she was at the vet or the pound these “professionals” said she was not carrying puppies EVEN WHEN WE ASKED.
If the appointment had been made just one day earlier those six puppies would have died. Do you know what happens when a vet is doing a fix operation on a pregnant animal? They through away the fetuses like trash. I’m pro choice but this bothers me. I doubt that any animal has any say or choice on the matter like this unlike a human.
So the puppies grew up happy and healthy and were found homes for free.
But the story does not end there.
Sandie had a lot of cuts and scratches on her tits from the puppies biting and scratching at her. One tit got infected and Sandie gotMastitis.Mastitis can kill an animal if not treated. She became very ill and lost her normally crazy appetite. Peer pressure from my boyfriend’s family forced us to take Sandie to the vet.
I’m sure you can guess what these “professionals” had to say.
The cost of treatment would have been 4000 dollars. With the added note that recovery was not guaranteed. We do not have this money and STILL ow this vet 500 dollars for the diagnosis. They however offered the cheaper alternative to just put her down, we don’t want a dog to suffer right? Aside from the financial pressure, and the stress that your dog might die (and not wanted to kill her!), my boyfriend’s bother threatened to leave him stranded at the vet for taking too long.
So began the home treatment of Sandie.
With lots of research we figured out what had to be done for Sandie. It was very messy, and after a day she had the strength to wonder around the house which meant trailing puss and blood all over the floor. Antibiotics were found for her and she was given two home stitching operations to close up the exploded tits. We even figured out that alcohol speed up the bursting process which is needed to help get all the bad stuff out.
Soon Sandie was in good health.
Not only that but her behavior started to… well change is not the proper word because she didn’t seem to have a personality in the first place. She was friendlier, developing a (bad) habit of jumping on people to lick our faces. She started playing with the other dog (which was SOOOO shocking). And even started to learn tricks.
We are no longer looking for home for Sandie.
She lives with us now.
After all that she went through, we don’t trust anyone else with her. Nobody seems to have enough faith in her. Even the professionals in this city can’t be trusted. “Hanging tits, popped vagina, and a bloated tummy while her ribs are showing? Nope, I’m a professional and I say she’s not pregnant.” ‘Dog is sick? The only alternative to paying a large treatment fee is to kill her.”
Not to mention…
We have no idea what happened to this dog BEFORE we found her! Pitbulls and pitbull mixes aren’t really treated well in NYC. Females like her are constantly used as puppy factories so they can sell the young dogs just so they can be abused and used a weapons. There is just as much as a chance that she got pregnant on the street as there is of her having been forced into it by a human at such a young age.
But all that is over.
Because she had people who had faith in her and valued her life as an animal on this same planet she is now a happy healthy dog.
That was Sandie’s story.
I hope you have the heart to give someone else a chance and give them all your faith.
Wow, this is an amazing story. Sandie’s owners deserve a lot of respect for not giving up on this wonderful dog.
SUPER URGENT 7/24/12—-Manhattan Center
CAPTIAN J.S - ID#A0939693
I am an unaltered male, white Pit Bull Terrier.
The shelter staff think I am about 4 years old.
I weigh 62 pounds. I was found in NY 10032.
I have been at the shelter since July 22, 2012
A volunteer writes: My heart stopped when I saw Cap. He has terrible mange, his eyes are goopy and yet all he did was wag his tail at the prospect of going out. I leashed him easily and out the door we went. He relieved himself immediately so is likely housetrained. Cap is the friendliest, kissingest dog I was with all day. He doesn’t know he has mange, He doesn’t know he isn’t gorgeous, and I didn’t tell him. He may not be gorgeous outside (at the moment), but what a sweetheart he is. He has been so neglected, his nails are so long they curl, although his weight is good for his size. We walked through the park, Cap by my side, stopping to take some pictures for which he posed beautifully and accepted treats graciously. When another dog stopped to investigate what we were doing, he wagged his tail appropriately. Cap loves to be petted, kissing my hands and so happy for our connection. Cap is a great dog with a loving and generous personality. With medication and care he will be as awesome outside as he is inside. He cries in his kennel as he is needy for love and attention. Won’t you open your heart to this wonderful dog today?

Sweet Lennox ~
Tonight I lit a candle in your name,
For your fight has brought the BCC shame
A special loved family member you were,
Torn from their arms in what can only be described as a blur
You gained worldwide attention,
For this, I cannot fail to mention
Your breed was your only crime,
And it brought you to the end of the line
Your time may now come for your soul to rest in peace,
And idly walk on the golden streets
It seems the Rainbow Bridge will be calling you home,
But have no fear, it’s a beautiful place to run and roam
An army was created to fight your personal war, a labor of love, not ever a chore
Your name will always be remembered, your life will always treasured
To end this BSL is a dream, but thanks to you, we have a new team
To remember you by, we will continue the fight
We may have to say goodbye, but it will not be goodnight
A special pup you certainly were, overseas and so very far
Distance does not matter then, nor shall it now
We know you’ll look upon us and teach us all how…
To love unconditionally, to smile when sad
To keep up the fight when we are still so mad
Goodnight sweet Lennox, may your final hours be in peace
Have fun at the Bridge, I hope someday we’ll meet.
