A Dog gets his day after Horrible Michael Vick

Last year during the Michael Vick shiteous debauchery that was his dog fighting dungeon, if I had been in the area-- I would have totally protested outside the courthouse throwing snausages and some mase at that low life while he entered the courthouse. I'm not along the lines of Peta, but I still get very sensitive when it comes to animal rights. Even when I go visit Lexie at the shelter, I get a lil sad because I want to adopt SO many dogs at the place (email me if you'd like the info about where we are adopting from- because this place is absolutely amazing!)..

Well, this story just melts my heart. Meet Leo, one of the victims who was severely abused when the cops found him and 50 other dogs at the hell hole. After being taken in by a very nice woman who is a certified trainer and worked with him in an intense program, Leo, a pit bull, is now what they say "a pussy cat" who likes to spend his time visiting with cancer patients.

He also goes and visits with young people on probation in San Jose, showing that even though he came from his awful background, you can totally be what you want to be.

Dogs are the best creatures ever..

Awe, i love stories like this. my puppy was a street dog and the people in the neighborhood used to spray her with a hose to get her off their lawn. my mom saw what was happening and brought her home. she was only five months old. Now she's the biggest baby on the planet, even though she's still terrified of water.

It's nice to hear that they don't automatically put the pups to sleep!
