Meet Benny!

This past Monday, I had the honor of working on an amazing young foster dog – an amazing Pit Bull that had been rescued from a truly tortured life.

“Benny was used as a bait dog in his early life. His abusers poured bacon grease down his back to entice the other dogs. When rescued, he had an embedded collar, fear and trust issues. Despite his rough beginnings, Benny grew into a wonderful, loving boy.”

Loving doesn’t even begin to describe it! Benny bounded into the room, gave me many kisses, and lay right down to let me know he was ready for his massage. What is most amazing to me is that after a year or more of unspeakable abuse, this dog is able to still love, trust, and be full of joy. More people who only know Pit Bull’s as being a “fighting” breed should meet Benny. Pit Bulls may be strong, but they are extremely smart and sweet. Pit Bulls are not born to fight or be bad, people instill that into them.

Meet Benny the smiling wonder dog!

Photos from The Miles for the Mothers – A Benefit for The Puppy Mill Project

So, better late than never! Here are some photos from the Miles for the Mothers benefit held in October 2012. These are all such wonderful dogs, and many of them survivors of the puppy mills. The Puppy Mill Project is working to not only help stop puppy mills from selling dogs, but also to help people understand the dangers of puppy mills.
