Oh Pit Bulls and Parolees, way to rip a girl's heart out on a Saturday night. Tonight's episode with Summer, a senior Pit Bull that has been in the rescue since she was a puppy, and to have a chance at a home at 13 years old. My heart ❤️💔💔💔💔 I know the struggle of trying for years to get wonderful dogs into homes. When this episode started I immediately thought about Penelope. A dog that was with us for years! Over 5 years and her adopter came to us last year, willing to give our broken senior a home. She didn't even flinch when we explained the issues with her knees and arthritis. She wanted to give her a home, no question, without reservations. There was no better feeling in the world then walking her through the front door of her home the day of her homecheck and I wish more than anything in this entire world for all my rescue dogs, especially my seniors to have an opportunity of a home.

Then I think of Roo. I would have given anything for him to have found that family that was for him. Despite my best effort that day never came. He was always ours and we made it official before he went, that even though a new family never came forward his rescue family loved him unconditionally since day one. ❤️ I miss him every day.
We have so many beautiful seniors, many dogs who have become seniors throughout the years in our rescue. Some who were adopted and returned, others who have never had that chance. I understand what we are up against. There are a lot of dogs that need homes and that will not change in the near future. But there are a lot of dogs in rescue that are forgotten about because they do not have the urgency of shelter animals that are at risk of euthanasia. But they still deserve a home too.
So I ask of my friends check out our website or Facebook and take a look at some of my paws. Many have waited years. Pick one and share and help us find them a family of their very own. It would mean the world to me.
