Rescue Dog’s Name
Chance and Nana
Where Did You Find Your Dog?
Chance was tied to a rope that was barely 2 feet long to a tree outside of an abandoned house with his only shelter being a rusty metal barrel surrounded by dirt. His owner lived in a small trailer further back on the property, no where near the dog. He was fed leftover ”slop” from the pigs his owner had and occasionally white bread. My brother approached his owner about taking the dog and he led us to 3 more dogs tied up on his property living with no shelter at all. There was no way we could leave this dogs in such poor care… After some talk and negotiating he agreed to hand over all 4 of the dogs to us. We brought them home to our farm an have been caring for them ever sense as ”foster parents”. Luckily we found 2 of the dogs home, but Chance and Nana are still in need of one.
Tell Us About the Moment When You Knew that You Two Were Meant for Each Other.
Our local Humane Society had shared a photo of Chance tied up outside the abandoned house online, not knowing the other dogs even existed, as an example to try and pass a local anti-tethering law. The moment I saw this poor animal looking so sad and pitiful I knew we had to take action and do something, which led to 3 young adults in their early 20’s taking on 4 amazing pit bulls!
How Has Your Hero Changed Your Life?
We had never had pit bulls before or really been around them for that matter. We love all animals but of course you always hear the negative stories when it comes to this breed. Being around these dogs everyday and seeing how amazing, resilient and loving they truly are has inspired us to take a stand against BSL and speak up for pits. Chance has showed us not to judge a book by it’s cover, he looked intimidating when we first saw him but he has proven to have a bigger heart than his head! And Nana is our little Miss. Piggy, she loves life and always has a big smile on her face as she frolics and rolls around in the grass. They have changed not only our view but also many others around us and we want to continue to show how great these dogs really are.
