On 5-26-2013, we went to a local shelter to evaluate Penny, an American Bulldog mix who has not been shown much, if any, kindness in her life. She was so fearful/angry that I could not even put my hand to her kennel. When not barking, snapping and growling, this poor girl was howling. Yes, howling my friends; it was one of the saddest and most painful cries I have ever heard and as you know, bully breeds rarely howl. She broke my heart.
Most likely used only as a breeding machine and locked up or chained up somewhere with little to no socialization, Penny is a product of what stupid, ignorant, heartless, cruel people can do.
We are happy to say that Penny is making progress with her training; however she still needs more help. She is now excepting of new women, but is still fearful of men. She is not ready to join a pack, and may never be, but does well with dogs one-on-one with slow intros and space for her to retreat. We feel that Penny can become a family dog, for the right family and the right home. She deserves a chance at a happy life and is showing us that she is money well spent.
Nothing is cheap and there should never be a price tag on a life. Our rescue has VERY limited funds but our heart goes out Penny and we hope that you can help us offer this poor girl a chance at a good life. Every $1 helps and is deeply appreciated. Her boarding runs us just under $300 per week and we really need your help.
