Hi everyone I adopted Mia, pit/shepherd mix, at the beginning of 2017. I was not aware that many local shelters only give bully breeds 5 days for rescues to take the dog. If not, the dog is euthanized. I do believe Mia's life was spared by the local shelter because she was pregnant. After her puppies were adopted, she was on the list and did not have much time. Mia's Heinz 57 mixture allowed the local rescue to classify her as a lab/shepherd mix as the local rescue does not routinely select bully breeds. This local rescue organization saved her life so that she could have a forever home with someone. If it was not for that local rescue and group of volunteers, the love she brings to my life would have never been shared.
She is grateful for her chance at life every day. She seems to always know where she came from and never stops showing me how great of a girl she is. She is by far the best and smartest dog I have ever owned as she is truly Momma Mia. She is kind, gentle, loving, and athletic. I consider her an ambassador for rescue dogs. Her loving spirit has not changed no matter what circumstances she has gone through. She loves everyone including all dogs.
I recently became a foster mom as I knew I was called to do something more. Mia loves being a foster sister as she welcomes fosters with open paws. I know I am only one voice but when many voices are put together a powerful impact can be made. I am a foster parent for Friends to the Forlorn Rescue in Dallas, GA and I am asking you to join with us in saving lives. I know not everyone can adopt, foster or volunteer but donating is a way to join the cause and help many in need. If you have met my Mia or heard me talk about her, please donate for us. You know how special of a girl she is and there are others out there that deserve to have their lives spared and receive their freedom rides. Please share this to spread the word as this social issue is not limited to one county or community. We are raising funds during the month of May.
