There is a male pit bull terrier in one of the Fargo-area pounds scheduled to be euthanized soon if no one saves him today (Tuesday). 02/25/09 edit: The pitbull was saved and has a foster home lined up!
The fact that this dog is a pitbull means his chances of being rescued are slim even though he has done well around other dogs and is a manageable 40 pounds.
With my close connections with dog rescue groups, I become aware of dogs like this pitbull often, and it’s difficult to say no. I can’t save them all. Most weeks I don’t save any.
Most people feel the same way as me – life is too hectic to save a dog right now. What if he’s aggressive? What if he’s not housebroken? What if he barks when I’m gone? What will I do with him this weekend?
But the opposite is also true. What if he’s a sweet dog? What if he could be someone’s best friend? What if he could change your life or someone else’s?
We can’t save every dog, but we can all do something. If you’ve considered fostering a dog before, now is the time to do it. This pitbull and so many others like him are waiting to be rescued. Maybe you can make a difference and save a life this year.
Below is Jesse, an American pit bull terrier who is waiting for a forever home. He was lucky enough to be pulled from the pound before he was euthanized. For more information about Jesse, check out his profile with 4 Luv of Dog Rescue. Edit: Jesse has been adopted!
