My husband was assisting with moving a dachsund from Tipton, TN Animal Shelter near Memphis, TN to a rescue in Tucson, AZ, so it wouldn't get killed due to an owner surrendering it to the Tenn shelter due to it peeing and popping in the house. (Well JEE, if you were left alone for 14 hours a day wouldn't you pee and poop in the house!)
The lady at the shelter knew that we love Pitties, and told me about this little girl that had been given an extention 3 times from being "KILLED", because this lady promised Petunia (Now known as Pitunia) that she would get her out of the shelter either into rescue or to a forever home.
Well like most states, Phoenix is over flowing with Pits and Pit-mixes that are killed every day in the shelters here.
I told this nice lady that I'm sorry but I don't know a rescue that could take her, and we have four dogs now, and we were leaving for vacation in a few days.
Well, she talked my husband into taking her, and I called in a favor with a rescue in Tucson to take her once she arrived in AZ.
After being in the shelter in Tenn, and then going into rescue, poor Pitunia was really getting depressed and my husband had become attached to her while transporting her to AZ.
We called on the Tucson rescue on July 4th and decided to go get Pitunia and she became our 5th dog.
Due to loose of our home (up coming 2009) and severe back injury to my L5 and L4, and my S1 and undergoing back procedures I am unable to care for my six dogs.
Pitunia is a good dog, and has been through a lot in the last three years.
She is a lovelable dog, and has had two different knee surgries. She needs her right patella done, but at this time she needs to get through staff infection which she is currently being treated for due to rejection of knee surgery she has.
We've spent about $5,000 on her in the last 14 months. If I am able to help financially with her patella surgery in her new home, I will.
There are also financial pet aid places that perhaps will help out with the needed surgery she needs at this point.
Its all about the love

Well, I must say I really didn't believe the nice lady when she kept whisphering in my ear that I'd get out of that Jail cell.
It seemed like forever before I was free, but finally the day came.
I went for a nice ride with this nice truck driver, with little Gabby (a Duchsand, owner surrender) was going to rescue in Tucson, AZ, and I was going to a rescue in Tucson, AZ as well that accepted Bully Breed Dogs.
I enjoyed my ride with the trucker, and I was brought to the rescue where I had other dogs to play with but I was still depressed because I didn't have someone to love me all day long, and cuddle with at night, and to shower with kisses.
Some time later, I saw the trucker guy again with this nice lady. I was introduced to their current family of four legged children and we got along great, so they told the rescue that they'd be willing to take me home as long as we all continued to get along great.
The rescue was so happy, and I was happy, and the trucker guy was happy because I heard them talking on the trip back to Phoenix that he hadn't stopped thinking about me since dropping me off with the rescue, and that he was happy that I was finally coming home.
I travel with my new daddy on his big truck with my new sister, Piglet, and sometimes Diesel.
I've been really good about behaving, and not peeing or pooping in the house, and I don't put up a fuss when I have to go in the crate.
Well, I'm off to go give my dad some more kisses and take a nap on the couch.
I hope to have some more pictures up soon with just me.
Thanks for reading my diary!
