In the southeast part of Childress, Texas, a lost and abandoned young pit bull delivered a half-dozen adorable and innocent puppies underneath a storage building; and that is where they all stayed until the mother dog weaned her babies. Now at approximately eight-weeks-old, her soft little pups and their mother are crowded together in a shelter cage at the Childress Animal Control.
Furever Friends and Rescue, a foster based rescue are trying to get the dogs placed outside of the city of Childress where a year ago, all pit bull breeds and mixes were immediately euthanized after their mandatory three-day holding period.
The all volunteer group has already managed to re-home four pit bulls by sending them to a rescue in Austin.
Unfortunately, the mother pittie is petrified, and scared dogs do not fare well in the shelter system because they often show an aggressive posture and may bite from fear. Her caretakers, however tell us that although she sits in her cage shaking, she is still very friendly.
There hasn't been much attention, so in an appeal to help find a safe rescue or home for this dog, please send her desperate and sad story to friends, coworkers, and family members.
All dogs must be up-to-date on vaccinations, and spayed or neutered before they are released for adoption. If you would like to help the Furever Friends and Rescue get these beautiful dogs ready for their new homes, please click here for information on their latest fundraiser.
