Kansas City, Missouri: Yesterday, a local animal advocate reached out to the American Pit Bull Examiner for help. A mother and son are on the urgent list at Kansas City Shelter.
According to our source, “we’ve tried sharing them, tried posting them…but, it is getting urgent.”
“Owner reports that Brinks loves people! He’s 9 yrs old but acts like a puppy. His owner says he does not do well with other animals but does great with his mother, Cinnamon (18811514), and has never been away from her in his whole life
He is affectionate and very obedient, does well with kids but nervous around strangers initially. Brink seems to love men. On assessment Brinks greeted the trainer at the front of the kennel in a quiet manner.
He was easily leashed and taken out. He walks nicely on leash without pulling, knows "sit", "shake" and "down" on cue, and takes treats gently (but did not eat them). He tolerated all touching and handling. He ignored a startle test. He showed no interest in play, treats, kibble or a high-value chew at this time.
Cinnamon is obedient and loves to be with you and she has never been away from her son, Brinks (18811505). Upon evaluation Cinnamon was friendly and approachable in her kennel. She walks nicely on leash without pulling. She knows "sit", "shake" and "down" on cue, and took treats gently. She enjoyed all touching and handling, and solicited attention from this handler.”
"Please watch the video...these are good sweet dogs who have been uprooted and need help! This is a video of both Cinnamon and Brinks:"

Kansas City has an excellent program called KC Pet Project. The group is trying to obtain no-kill status for the shelter, but is in the infantile stages. In order for any good shelter to save lives, the public must be involved.
Please share this story in hopes that Cinnamon and Brinks might be rescued and support this hardworking shelter reaching out for our help.
