A couple of weeks ago, Chain of Hope received a call from a citizen that said that a little black and white pit bull puppy had wandered up to their house. The man said that he had fed it and that it had been there for 2 days and would not leave. He said that they couldn’t keep it and someone had told him about Chain of Hope. I headed over the next day to check this out and when I pulled up, I saw a very cute, scared, freezing, shaking pit bull puppy in a cardboard box beside their front porch. There was a blanket in the bottom of the box. The night before it had been 8 degrees!
I asked the guy if she had spent the night out there like that and he said yes. I said, “you mean to tell me that you couldn’t even put this little thing in the basement last night?” He said, “no, but we gave her a blanket”. I told him I didn’t know how this sweet little thing had made it through the night. I couldn’t leave her here, so I told him that we could take her and that he could put her in the van. He carried her over there, box and all.
We loved on Gwen and took very good care of her. She began to relax and to not be so scared. Before long, her ears were up instead of down and her tail was no longer tucked between her legs. We put her in a play group and she had a ball!
Gwen is safe now, spayed and vaccinated. She is an awesome puppy-a very good girl! She is crate-trained and just loves everyone! Gwen could sure use a foster home or even better, an adoptive home. She is Miss Personality!
Gwen had a great Christmas! She is a fun little pit bull, only weighing about 30-35 lbs.at 6 mo. She probably won’t be a real big pittie. If you’re looking for a young, remarkable pit bull that is well behaved and ready to charm your family, then Gwen is the one!
