Odyssey, a Pit Bull in Las Vegas

Attending a formal dinner with 30 VIP's

Odyssey didn't have a name when she ran to my wife in a strip-mall. A heartless person pushed the then four-month old female puppy out of his truck in a parking lot and drove off.

My wife was just locking the door of the shop she manages and being the only person around, the dog ran up to her and loved her up.

My wife called me and told me that she had a really bad day and, by the way, she'll be bringing a dog home (we have four cats).

I opened the passenger door when my wife drove up to the house, and out jumped the puppy. She ran a circle on the drive way and rolled over in front of me wanting a belly rub.

This was the beginning. Now she is almost three years with us and on the way to getting certified as a therapy dog.

Love the pitties!!!!
by: Lori

So nice to see people doing something constructive with the breed. These are wonderful dogs that deserve to be treated as pets in loving homes instead of out back on a log chain.

A HUGE KUDOS to your wife for recognizing what a wonderful dog Odyssey is & doing great things to help others....I don't have the words for what you people do. Have rescued a few pibbles myself, I know 1st hand the atrocisities (sp) this poor breed goes through every minute of the day....~~Love this story~~

pet adoption
by: Rachel

I love your story and how you changed your dogs life. Adopting pets is important because there are so many abused and homeless pets. I recently went to Leid animal shelter, they have done a huge remodel its so much better for the animals. My family and I went to adopt a puppy they had online. She is such a well mannered loving pit mix. The vet believes the litter was dumped because the breeder was trying for perfect blue eyes. She has beautiful blue eyes with a bit of brown and she has great vision something that often is a problem for pups like her. Leid Animal Sanctuary is often over run with pitbulls chiuhauhas and cats if you are looking for a loving pet I'm sure you could find just what you are looking for there.

Odyssey rescued
by: Anonymous

What you have done for Odyssey is far more than most people. We can definitely use more loving people and responsible like you and then we could at least decrease the numbers in shelters. As far as that //?/?/ {words like that are fitting but not nice} we could the world would be a better place for people and dogs {including the bullies.
