Pit bulls are the common breeds that are used for dogfighting in different parts of the world. Unfortunately, this became the reason why they are viewed as an aggressive breed among all the other dogs. Because of this reason alone, they often get abused, neglected, mistreated by humans, and often overlooked by potential adopters.
Betsy, the pitbull, lived a difficult life. This poor dog was forced to fight at a very young age, but she didn’t want to.
She just wanted to feel the love from people around her, but she didn’t get any. To make it worse, she became a bait dog.
Luckily, a person named Viktor Larkhill rescued her just in time. When he brought the poor dog in their clinic, she had multiple injuries.
Betsy’s body was full of wounds that her rescuers feared that she wouldn’t survive any longer, or she would get an infection. Despite this little hope left, Betsy fought hard.
She overcame eight surgeries in total in just a few months. She faced every obstacle that came in her way. Through it all, she learned how to trust humans again.
The moment Betsy was medically cleared, a family offered to adopt her. How great, isn’t it? She even had a doggy sibling and human brothers!
Her new family takes her on different adventures. They would take her to the stream to splash into the water or run around the mountains. They even have a pool that they could enjoy.
One could see how happy Betsy is with her new family. Her tail wags say it all! Betsy started rough in life, but now she’s living her dreams!
This only proves how resilient animals are, no matter what the circumstances will be. You can watch Betsy’s tearjerking story here:
We hope that with this story, we could eliminate the stereotypes of pit bulls. Please remember, animals will never be aggressive, not unless they’re scared, hurt, threatened, or trained to do so.
