Earlier this summer, Bitsy the pit bull went through some challenging times. She ended up at the Atlanta Humane Society after someone stuck a hunting knife in her head.
An emergency surgery saved this pit bull’s life, and she was known around the Atlanta area for what happened to her. Donations, emails, calls flooded in to help with Bitsy’s situation.
Now, several months later, Bitsy gets to enjoy Thanksgiving in her new home. She plays with squirrels, jumps on the couch, and enjoys going for car rides.
Chris and Michelle Rabold, Bitsy’s new owners, read what happened to Bitsy and were shocked that someone could actually do something this cruel to a dog.
The couple applied to adopt Bitsy and would check their email every night to see if they had been accepted by the Atlanta Humane Society to adopt the recovering pit bull.
Finally, Bitsy’s owner gave up custody, and she was available for adoption. The Rabolds met Bitsy and a few days later, she joined their family.
“We have a real soft spot in our hearts for pit bulls,” Chris Rabold said. “They get such the bad rap. But we would have adopted her even if it was a dachshund. She’s got this old soul quality, you can see it in her eyes. There’s something special about her.”
