Jada had one day left at a local dog pound....i had recently lost my pom of 15 years to nothing more than old age...he very peacefully went to sleep in my lap here at home, he had been a rescue 12 years earlier.
Needless to say my significant other went to the local landfill with a friend and saw "smiley" a skinny white and black pit wiggling and wagging and of course smiling.
He tried to adopt her on the spot but was told he couldn't because we lived in a neighboring county. He rang me up and I called our local dog warden she then called them and told them we were responsible and great pet owners and that dog should not be put down when we were willing to take her. They agreed and " Smiley" came home with Jay.
I was little hesitant at first because prior to losing my pom the year before that Jay had lost his 14 year old chocolate Lab, again to old age. I found him a black lab pup which we adopted and named Black Jack. We weren't sure how the two would get along. Nonetheless we thought we'd give it a try.
They have become the best of friends and 2 years later no fights, and no aggression issues at all. As a matter of fact they can't stand to be apart. With no assistance from the pound... I tracked down the original vet and ultimately the original owner. He had lost his job, then his home. Before he could find her a home she was picked up and he could not pay the fees. Her name was and is now Jada. She had been raised with his 3 kids.
She is a real DIVA, and the sweetest dog I've ever had. She is protective of me and Jack and she is very submissive. And absolutely loves kids. My 2 year old grand son frequently gets in her crate with her.
Through our adoption of Jada we have changed many of our friends, family and neighbors opinions of Pit Bulls. We love her dearly and if we had room I'd absolutely have more pits and plan to always have one here. She loves her belly rubs and massages. Thank you for the opportunity to share.
