The Dog who came back from the dead
The amazing recovery of Patrick the Pitbull after he was dumped in the rubbish.
Patrick’s original owner left the dog tied up to a railing for 7 days before somebody dumped his dying body in the rubbish. When he was rescued Patrick was starving, and had been subjected to months, possibly a lifetime of horrific abuse.
After weeks of emergency measures which included a transfusion of three pints of dog blood, a special diet, medicine and physical therapy, Patrick began to gain weight and eat solid food.
Patrick has received hundreds of letters, emails, donations and gifts by those inspired by his tale of survival.
This story appeared on Pintrest yesterday, but occurred last year. How anyone could ever be so cruel is beyond me.
I get really disappointed when I hear people talk so negatively about Pitbull terriers. You hear so many horrible comments. In many places Pitbulls are classified as a dangerous breed and are in fact illegal to own.
But is it really the breed of dog or the people who own these dogs that are responsible for the negative image?
I honestly do not believe that any breed of dog is dangerous. If an animal is treated with respect, kindness and love it will become a gentle loving sole. The same goes for every other animal on this planet including humans.
I love these images which I found on both Pintrest and Facebook, I think they capture how I feel about this perfectly.
