Sun bathing, sleeping on my pillow, wrestling with Vulcan, EATING!!
Only getting fed twice a day, when other dogs don't want to play with her

I was not planning on going to animal control the day I met Chili. I was an active volunteer with the "no kill" shelter next door to animal control but tried to avoid animal control if at all possible. I need to talk to the veterinarian that took care of the shelter animals. She was in the back of the shelter pulling blood on that weeks dogs (to "weed" out the heart worm positive dogs). As I was talking this skinny, tick-ridden, pittiful (no pun intended) tan pit bull was lead in. It was one of those moments I can't really describe but I am sure most of you know what I am talking about. I knew the moment I saw her there was something special about her and that somehow I had a responsibility to her. At the time I had four dogs of my own and three "fosters" (two of which are still with me). I loved pits but had never owned one and was worried about bringing on home with my other dogs. I decided to wait and see what her HW results were. And of course I got a call from the shelter saying she was HW positive. Luckily one of the care takers offered to foster her if I could pay for her treatment. She was treated successfully but when I say her after she got spayed she was very thin and sickly looking. The person she was living with did not know why she was that way (we provided food for Chili and his other dogs). We found out the guy that was fostering her was having some personal trouble. Long-story short we got her out of there and after a few days of good meals she looked great. I told myself she was only going to be a foster and I was going to find her a good home but the more I read about pit bulls the more unlikely I thought this would be. Well you can all guess where she is today- still with me and I have never regretted it. I can't believe I ever thought of adopting her out. She is best buds with my goofy rott/ridgeback mix and has helped him overcome is past of living 2 years in the shelter. She changes everyone's minds about pits that meet her. There is no other way to describe her but perfect.
