Some of you may have seen my latest posts about bringing home our new fur baby Ditto. But there was also a side-story to Ditto's, and it both broke and warmed my heart.
We got Ditto from a shelter and he was on a 5 day hold. Well, in my family, we treat animals like little people. And there was no way we could leave the newest little member of our family alone while he waited out his hold time. So we visited him every day, for at least a couple of hours.
While we were there, it was hard not to look around and see the other dogs there. It broke my heart; so many of them I wanted to save too. Some were way too active, loud or aggressive for me to even consider it. But ONE dog stood out.
His name is Duke. He is a 5 year old, 80lb, blue staffordshire terrier. For those who arent familiar, think "Huge Pitbull with a Humungous Head." But he was calm and quiet. When the keepers took him for walks, he didnt pull on the leash or growl at any other dogs.
