It was three years ago that Blossom, a gentle pit bull terrier took on a litter of five puppies that were just days old, who had lost their mother due to a grisly act of abuse. The story is particularly bittersweet as Blossom had also suffered abuse when she was thrown out of a vehicle by her owner, separated forever from her puppies.
A board member from Operation Education Animal Rescue, Jean Dumont adds “We have made it our mission (in celebration of May being Mother’s Day month) to find her a family of her very own this month”.
Jean Dumont also added, “This young pity mother met the orphans and it was love at first sight. She nursed all 5 as if they were her own and they all survived”.
The fortunate orphaned puppies all went on to find forever homes, but sadly Blossom is still without a home three years later. Blossom, who is approximately five years old, with all her vaccinations up to date, is heart worm negative, house broken and crate trained. She is great with both people and dogs. Blossom is located in Tennessee, and while she is good with dogs, it is recommended no cats. What she really needs is a home of her own, she is such a sweet, loving dog.
Not everyone is willing to take on a pit bull often due to the bad “rap” they sometimes receive. It is important to remember that pit bulls can and do make wonderful pets, and like any dog, the stories you often hear are most often due to abusive owners who train their dogs to be aggressive.
