It all started with a kitty. NotFotsKitty to be exact. Then I rescued a jack russell terrier, Baxter. I never thought of having a pit bull. All of that changed when my long distance boyfriend was laid off in Roanoke, VA. The sluggish economy made finding a job in that area hard. Although we'd only been dating a couple months, I knew finding a job would be much easier in Greensboro. Without hesitating, I told Jeremy to pack his stuff and bring his elderbull to my house. Two years later, I can't imagine my life without Jeremy and Danky.
Jeremy has said many times, that his family was concerned when he adopted Danky as a puppy in 1997. They were worried that Danky would be aggressive and live up to all of the negative media. It took a few years, but his family now loves and trusts, "old Mr. Black." Danky has changed lots of misconceived notions about pit bulls in Crewe, Virginia and abroad.
We happened upon CCB by chance at a local corn maze. We started following them on Facebook and waited about 6 months before volunteering to dog sit while permanent fosters went on vacation. That's when we were asked to sit Valentino for a week. Having a third dog in the house presented its challenges, but everyone rose to the occasion. When it was time for Valentino to go home, we were all sad and crying. About 6 weeks later, while on vacation, I saw that Valentino needed a new foster. Jeremy and I both agreed, almost instantly, that we would step up. Valentino has been with us since August 8th, 2011.
Our CCB friends have become like a second family to us. We look forward to seeing everyone and their fosters at events all over the triad. Whether it's helping with events, soliciting fundraising donations or loving on all the pibbles, Jeremy and I try our best to be good spokespeople for CCB. We are so humbled to be part of this great group pf pit bulls and people.
