I currently am a fur mommy to two pit bull rescues. Danny is a tri-colored pit bull/AmStaff mix and then Ralphie, who is my huge challange is a pit bull American Bulldog mix.
Ralphie has had issues since his birth. Eye infection at a very young age caused them to perform surgery on him and remove the eye, at the same time they fixed him...at 8 weeks old.
The infection was so bad he suffered from demodex mange. He came to us almost hairless, missing an eye and full of yeast, at about 6 months old.
He breaks my heart because no one or animal deserves to suffer as much as he does.
He has a bad leg which we think was broken at a very young age but never fixed correctly and he is now suffering thru what I think is Guttate Psoriasis. He is a beautiful hot mess and I would not trade him for anything or any other dog.
The rescue had asked if I wanted to return him since he was such an issue, does a parent of a handicapped child return that child? No way in hell.
Ralphie is a blessing as is Danny. Rescue those babies, they deserve it!
