Owners Who Were Having A Baby Surrendered Their Pup All Because They Were Scared Of Her Breed

When an adorable Pit Bull by the name of Shelly was surrendered to a shelter because her family was having a baby, she felt confused, depressed, and betrayed.  

Unfortunately, since it is very hard for pups of her breed to be adopted, Shelly was placed on the euthanization list three weeks after arriving at the shelter.

Shelly gave up all hope of being a part of a forever family until an incredible hooman found out about her sad fate and decided to turn it around completely.

Second Chance

As soon as Lacey, Shelly’s new owner, heard that she was scheduled to be put down the very next morning and “had to be out of the building that day”, she opened up her arms and took her into her loving home.

“Unfortunately there are so many pit breeds in the shelter that are in perfectly healthy condition that get overlooked,” Lacey told Newsweek.

Being a determined volunteer at the shelter, Lacey knew that Shelly could make so many hoomans happy if she was only given the chance. So, she decided to offer her a helping hand by taking her in.

“We wanted to foster because I knew she could find a good home if she was just given more time,” she added.

Over time, Lacey’s assumption was proven right; however, not the way she imagined it when she first signed up to be Shelly’s foster.

“We had just adopted one new dog, so we initially thought getting two more on top of the one we had would be too much. But Shelly and our other new dog got along so well and felt so safe with each other. They were bonded almost instantly. It helped that they were both extremely well-behaved and both dog- and people-friendly. So I thought it was best to just keep them together,” Lancey stated. 

Finally, Shelly was a part of a family who loved and adored her for who she truly was.

Shelly adores her adoptive brother and her new family. She also makes sure to spread her happiness by greeting every hooman she comes across.

She is now living the life of every pup’s dreams! Her days are full of fun playdates, loving memories, and pawsome adventures.

End The Prejudice

It fills my heart knowing that this sweet girl was not only offered a second chance at life but also given her happily ever after.

But, it also brings me to tears knowing that she was placed in such an unfortunate situation all because of her breed.

A lot of hoomans, unfortunately, are quick to judge Pit Bulls because they believe all of the stereotypes surrounding them.

Please know that these sweet creatures are no more aggressive than other breeds out there. They are extremely gentle, loyal, and loving companions who will do anything to ensure that their hoomans always have a smile on their faces.

It is crucial to let go of these prejudices and know that every doggo, regardless of their breed, deserves to be loved and cherished!
