I discovered Out Of The Pits via the Petfinder website. My husband and I had just bought a house and were looking to adopt a “sister” for our Black lab, Ace. We had developed a heart for the PitBull Breed and were totally impressed by OOTP and the responsibility they take in rescuing and re-homing these misunderstood dogs. We visited a few clinics, met the amazing staff, available dogs, and their wonderful “foster parents.” It was then that Joann told us about a little dog that she felt would be the perfect match for us.“Samantha” was found wandering the streets of New York City in horrible condition. She sat in the crowded NYC shelter for just three days before she was placed on a list to be immediately euthanized. Her guardian angel, Carrie, from OOTP saw her picture on the “To Be Destroyed” list for that very day and decided to take action. She was thin, her face and feet were swollen, she had no hair and her skin cracked and bled at the touch. At only 6 months old she had probably spent most of her life suffering. OOTP pulled her from her death sentence and placed her in the amazing care of Carrie, who worked what seemed like magic and brought Sammy back to life. When we met her, months later, she was a happy, beautiful, shiny, energetic little girl who only wanted to lay in our laps and give us kisses. It was instant love for both me, and my husband.
We brought our girl home May 20th, 2012 and renamed her Dahlia, our little flower. Every day since then she has made us laugh, and has literally snuggled her way into the heart of our family. She and Ace hit it off famously and we know that bringing her home was one of the best things we could have done for him. “D” is just a wonderful girl with a happy, wiggly, personality. Her tail can clear a coffee table in the blink of an eye and is a force to be reckoned with!! She is eager to please and is doing very well with her obedience. We just love her so much and cannot thank OTTP and her guardian angel, her foster mom, Carrie enough for allowing her to be ours.
Thank you OOTP!!! Love, the Quick Family, Calen, Sarah, Ace and Dahlia.
