I hope you all had a great weekend!
Sunday rained all day for us, so we spent most of the day indoors, but Saturday was super hot!!
We bring you the most PAWtastic, PAWsome story that we could have PAWsibly found!
This is one, we don't hear of to much anymore these days.
More often than not, we hear stories of Police Officers shooting PitBulls, and other large breed dogs.
Most of you probably know, that I am a huge PitBull advocate.
I hate hearing the stories about police, and think that there are WAY to many of these cases, but at the same time, I know that all police officers are not "out to get" these breeds. Today's story, is a wonderful example of that.
Meet Sargent Carter, and a PitBull named Jeffery.
As I was doing research for this post, I realized, that there has been an update to this story.
I will share both parts with you today :
Part one :
SGT. Carter was called to come and inspect the accusations of people stating that there was an aggressive PitBull following them around, and he was a stray. These people who called, claimed that they were scared of the dog. When SGT. Carter and his partner arrived on scene, they quickly realized that this dog was anything but aggressive. He was simply in search of food, and showed NO signs of aggression.
Realizing this, the officers immediately began searching, to see if this dog was just "lost."
They realized he was microchipped, and tracked the owner, then finding out that the dogs name was Jeffery.
Take a look at this short news clip :
Sounds like a happy ending, am I right?
Partly . . .
Part two :
Just yesterday, I came across the second part to this amazing story.
Soon after the so called "happy reunion" between Jeffery the dog, and his owner, Jeffery was being turned in at the local animal shelter. The owner claimed, he did not want the PitBull anymore.
Now, in my mind, instantly I am thinking, hmmm . . . it appears that Jeffery was not lost to begin with!
If the owner turned him in that quickly, my first thought is, he most likely kicked the dog out to the streets to begin with. BUT I do not know the facts, so who am I to say, right?
Anyways, SGT Carter caught wind of the dog he had previously rescued from the street, was now at the shelter. Also facing being euthanized. His words were "this dog keeps crossing my path, so we must be meant to be."
How great of a man is that?
SGT. Carter adopted the dog named Jeffery, and soon changed his name to Chance, as the officer feels, the Pit is getting a second chance, at life.
I have a feeling, these two found each other for a reason.
I would like to give SGT. Carter and his pup Chance, a HUGE shout out from all of us here at Love is being owned by a husky, and I would also like to take the time to say THANK YOU!
I wish you and Chance the best of days, and the happiest of lives, together.
This dog (Chance) was said to have escaped his yard.
Even though, that is most likely not true, given the fact that the owner surrendered him after the officers recovered the dog, still though, it is very impawtant to have a proper fence, which fits your home and needs.
Having proper barriers for your dog, will prevent escaping.
My yard is not fenced, but my huskies are always on a lead.
If you are thinking about getting a fence, put some thought into the new modern wireless fences.

That's all for us today. We hope we were able to bring a smile to your Monday. :)
See you tomorrow!
