Pit Bull puppies were being sold as fighting dogs after being born into an unfair situation.The siblings who should have been placed in loving homes were instead subjected to a life of abuse.Thankfully, a local rescue heard about their owner’s situation and stepped in, writes ilovemydogsomuch.The rescue group seized the entire litter with the assistance of the authorities and shared the story on their social media page.
Tawny, a young woman, saw the puppies’ photos and fell madly in love with Keiko.She wanted to adopt Keiko and his brother Niko, but their town had a strict rule that only three dogs could be adopted per household.Tawny already owned two dogs.She contacted the rescue, and Keiko was welcomed into his forever home within a few days.
Tawny couldn’t help but notice that something was missing from Keiko’s life.Nonetheless, she got Keiko settled in and he bonded well with her other dogs.Unfortunately, their oldest puppy, who had lived a wonderful and long life, died.They were all heartbroken.But then, as if by chance, Tawny was scrolling through her phone when she came across a photo of Niko with an urgent message.Niko was mistreated by the family who had adopted him.The rescue urged them to return Niko, which they did.He needed to find a new place to live.
Tawny jumped to the rescue right away.They knew Niko belonged with them now that they were a two-dog family.The rescue team agreed.The next day, they picked up Niko and drove him home.The poor dog had been through so much.He was charming but shy.”If we tried to step over him, he’d flinch,” Tawny says in the video.He peed himself if we tried to put a leash on him.”Niko desperately needed to feel safe and loved.
Keiko recognized Niko as his brother the moment he saw him for the first time in their new home together.He recognized him, and that special connection was exactly what Niko required.Keiko quickly became his best friend and protector, never leaving his side.Niko’s first night in his new home was terrifying.His new parents placed him in his new crate with his new blankets and tried to comfort him as much as they could.But Keiko was wiser.He was aware that Niko required his assistance in order to sleep.So Keiko crept into his crate, cuddled up beside him, and they both fell asleep.
This is a beautiful story that continues in the video below.You have to wait and see what happens next!Poor Niko was traumatized and continued to fight his emotions– but his brother, miraculously, knew exactly what to do to change his life for the better. EVERY FEELING!
