Arrival Story:
We originally had Athena, who I love to death, and I thought she needed someone to play with when we were at work. My boyfriend, Johnathan, would always talk about the two beagles he had before we met. I figured he would never get over the other dogs until he could love another beagle and I knew deep down he wanted one. So I started looking in newspapers and the shelter, but around here, beagles are not bred the way pit bulls are. .................................. ................................ I heard on the radio that Pet Barn was sponsoring an adoption drive and I went to see if there were any beagles. Lucy was the only one. She was a stray and they had just got her for she did not have a name and she was not yet spayed. I ran home and grabbed the clan; Johnathan, Athena, and Mya. She was so calm and while I filled out the paper work she just laid by him and they were in love... .................................. ...................... Because she was not spayed, we could not take her until the surgery was done. We were disappointed but we didn't have a choice and they said the surgery should happen that week. Unfortunately two weeks later it still wasn't done. We called and called, by the third week they knew exactly who we were calling for when we mentioned her getting surgery. After a enough excuses and calling every day on the third week to make sure she went into surgery, they told us we could pick her up on a Saturday. Saturday came and we were hit with another excuse saying that she was not cleared and we STILL could not pick her up. After Johnathan spoke with someone and pushed that we had been very patient, we had been getting many different answers, and were upset that it had taken as long as it did he hung up and was a bit upset about all of the run around we had been given. About 15 min later, he received a phone call from the head veterinarian apologizing for all of the miscommunication on their side and that she would clear Lucy and we could get her that day. Johnathan looked like he was ten years old and he was going to pick up his best friend (he was excited to say the least). .................................. ................................. We picked her up and took here to see Athena once again. Lucy was malnourished from either previous owners or the fact she was picked up as a stray. She also still had stitches from the surgery and 8 month old Athena was very smart and sensed right away she was not feeling well. Although Athena is much younger than Lucy, Athena turned into the mother. She followed her to make sure she was ok, she snuggled next to her and was very gentle. Even to this day if Lucy yelps while playing with another dog at the dog park, Athena will run over to make sure everything is alright. They are best friends. If Athena stays at my mom's for a day with out Lucy, Lucy acts down and when they get together again they act like they haven't seen each other in years, the way they play. .................................. ........................ Everyone always tells us how odd a pair they are and people assume because Athena is a "pit bull" that they don't get a long and that Athena is the aggressor. It is just the opposite, Lucy is the one to nip at Athena to get her to play with her, Athena will ignore or gently push her away. These two really do prove that not all pit bulls are mean and that it is not the breed, it is how they are raised.
