Meet Zeke, Bella, and Lucky!
Location: Hanover, PA

Their story, as told by their person, Donna:
I first met Zeke when I met my boyfriend 5 years ago. Honestly, at first I was nervous around Zeke and nervous to have Faith (10) and Chase (5) around him, but that didn’t last long at all. I soon found out that the only thing Zeke was going to do was lick us to death. 🙂 I don’t think people understand the true nature and kindness of a pit bull until they actually own one or are properly educated on the breed. It’s a shame that they have such a bad rep. A year after meeting Timmy (my boyfriend) and Zeke, we adopted Bella when she was 3 months old, and we fell in love with her right away! Zeke immediately took a liking to her and followed her around, like her protector. They became best friends and she was just as friendly with the kids as Zeke had been.
Then along comes our little Lucky Ducky; Timmy actually found her on the side of the road! She had a messed up nose, serious nasal and respiratory issues, and her fur was falling out in clumps. We took her to the vet and had every intention of getting her better and then finding a home for her…well, needless to say, she didn’t go anywhere because we weren’t able to let her go. So then all of a sudden we had THREE pit bulls. Wow…
Some people hear that and they are like “aren’t you worried about them around your kids?” or “that’s way too many dogs, especially mean dogs like that breed.” I just tell whoever is so concerned to educate themselves before they speak about the breed. A LAB bit my daughter and a DALMATION bit my son. So, yeah…point made. Lucky sleeps with Faith every night. We tell Lucky to go to bed and where does she go? Right into Faith’s room and up on her bed; it’s the sweetest thing ever.
I just wanted to share a little about my pet pits and help to spread the word on what a wonderful breed they are. Hopefully one day they won’t have the negativity surrounding them and more will get adopted and taken into good homes. I love my dogs, and I couldn’t imagine a day without them.
