Luna's New Beginnings
A year or so ago I was adopted by Terry and Gavin. If you've been following the Pet Pro Life web site for very long, you might remember me as Anna, a young pit bull who had been abused and neglected. My new Mom and Dad thought the name Luna would be more appropriate for me, so they renamed me. I like my new name.
I've really become an integral part of Terry's family now. I can't imagine anyone loving me more than they do, and I love them just as much in return.
Although I don't trust people easily, Terry and Gavin have earned my trust, and I try to be the most affectionate dog they've ever known. I love them so much that I just can't help wanting to give them kisses!
Due to the abuse and neglect I experienced as a young puppy, I still tend to be fearful of strangers. At home with my family though, I'm just a happy-go-lucky, playful, snuggling bundle of love. I've really grown, and I'm pretty heavy now—fifty-five pounds—but I just love to lie on my Mom's or Dad's lap.
I've become incredibly attached to their other dog, Bacchus, and the two of us are great companions. Bacchus is the leader/Alpha dog and I happily follow his every lead. I love to interact with other dogs too, and I have a real blast going to the dog park and dog beach—I literally bounce with joy when I see other dogs to play with!
My Mom is sending along some pictures of me. The first is the one that Pet Pro Life posted on PetFinder when they were trying to find me a new home. It shows me as Anna when they first adopted me. The second shows me with my best friend, Bacchus. And the third shows me being a lap dog with my Dad.
I want to thank Pet Pro Life for all the work they do to give animals like me the good homes and lives every pet deserves.
If anyone has questions about adopting an abused dog or a pit bull, or if they hesitate to do so (people stereotype us so unfairly), I'm sure my Mom would be more than happy to share her experiences with them.
