I have been so heartbroken by the online discrimination again my girl, a pittie named Wren. She has overcome so much. Found as a stray in below freezing conditions, so afraid of people she almost killed herself trying to escape, she was caught by our hero, a cancer patient dedicated to rescue. We adopted her, and it is phenomenal how much she trusts us. I met her at a doggy daycare, and she trusted me so much, when a dog bullied her, she stopped fighting back when she saw me, knowing I would throw the dog off, and protect her. Similar things have happened so many times. She hid behind me when boyfriend showed her a drain pipe that scared her.
Yet, when boyfriend came back from a bachelor party and tried to break in, having lost his keys, I was so scared, not realizing it was him, and hid, and she barked and charged the door until he got in and she saw him, and we were both so relieved.
She is so gentle with kids, small dogs, and even found a mouse that she treated so gently, and tried to play with, but refused to hurt.
Does she really seem like a killer to most? I want to believe I have just met bad people that would be so cruel, as she is so sweet, and is so compassionate. Do many really think she's bad since she's a pit? Even though she treats all with such respect and love, and even tries to protect me, which I usually discourage, if we are mortally afraid?
