Rami - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from Albuquerque Animal Welfare - Westside, Albuquerque, NM.

When I found another dog on Petfinder, I fell in love with her pictures. Quickly, I made the 1 1/2 hour drive to go visit her. The profile said she was sweet, laid back, and on the smaller side of a Boxer/Pit Bull. This dog was the complete opposite. She was huge for a Pit Bull, she was running everywhere, the staff could barley control her. I thought I could train her, but she didn't even pay attention to us. I was quite disappointed. We decided that we might as well look for another dog since we had driven this way. Walking down the kennels, I found this beautiful small, golden Pit named 'Sandy' the first time I looked at her I walked past her, but knew I had to come back to take a second look. I thank God that I did. Rami is the absolute sweetest and well behavior dog my neighbors have meet. Everybody in my street thought like everybody else that, 'Pit Bulls were vicious man eating animals' I've had Rami for 3 years now, and in that time the some of my neighbors have acquired there own Pit Bulls, that I helped them select from shelters. I thank Petfinder for helping me find one of the best dogs I've ever had. And now my small Chihuahua has a new best friend.
