The puppy in this story is incredibly lucky--Ontario has a ban on pit bulls and this pup was surrendered to a shelter by its owners because they were going on vacation. The pup was labeled a pit bull and was going to be put down as such, but a rescue out of Nova Scotia swooped in and saved it.
But I am pretty dumbfounded by the fact that the puppy was surrendered to a shelter by a family because they were going on vacation. Vacation! The dog was about to die so its former family could sun their pasty bodies on a beach and buy bad souvenirs!
Glad the pup is OK. I really feel for the "new" puppy these folks said they planned to get when they returned.
