My Pit Bull Story From Last Night

Posted by   + Show Post

Love him dearly. He has a habit of getting excited around new people and jumping on them, scratching them (hurts!) Plus, it's just annoying lol . Yes, we correct him and he listens pretty well, but since we were having Thanksgiving Dinner at our house last night with my parents and sister, Gator was in the crate. My mom has MS and is severely disabled, in a wheelchair, and has lived in a nursing home for 8 years. We picked her up, checked her out and brought her to my house yesterday for Turkey Day. My mom has always been  an animal lover, and was just begging me to let him out because she wanted to see him up close. Reluctantly, I finally agreed and let him out. He came right over to my mom, wagging his tail. I was prepared to yell at him when I thought he was going to jump on her, but instead I was amazed at how gentle he was. He came up to her, nuzzled her legs and very gently raised himself up to her level face-to-face. He layed his head down on her chest and let her pet him. It was so wonderful to see her so happy, and she loved every minute of it as he gave her kisses.  Anybody else, he would have excitedly jumped on them (even cut, his nails hurt). It's like he could sense that this was somebody who was weak and he needed to be gentle and kind. It's the same dog who when I'm in bed crying, will come inch up to me and give me love and snuggles to make me feel better. He is very intelligent, loving, and kind.

But if you break into my house, you'd turn RIGHT back around, lol.


BASH AWAY  .

We have a boxer who gets excited when he sees people. My mom had stayed with is after neck surgery. I let him in one day while she was sitting on the couch, I told him kennel. He took off running and made a quick stop in front of my mom and sat at her feet and really gently put his head on her. Dogs are very smart and can sense things. I don't know why people feel like they need to talk about what their pits do. If someone hates them a cute pic will not change their minds. Sucks, but is true.

Dogs can sense things like that.  One of my friends had a rescue boxer, who could sense when someone was not feeling well.

Quoting NOLAmommaKRYS:

Dogs are very smart. He likely sensed that she was weak and acted the correct way. How amazing.



And I love his name lol
