One day in October, twelve fighting dogs were rescued from a dogfighting ring and brought to the shelter. They got new Christmas names because they were supposed to be available for adoption at Christmas time. This is the story of Jingle, who joined our family as a medical foster dog. He went through six weeks of vet treatments, destroyed all the different cone collars we tried, ate the door jamb and a pillow, got out of his locked crate, shredded a $5 bill, but amazingly never barked, growled, or threatened anyone. Two months of fostering turned into eleven months when the court case dragged on into the following year. During that time, Jingle learned commands such as SIT, PAW, DOWN, and most importantly, LEAVE IT and DROP IT. Somewhere along the way, he learned to love and trust, chose us for his family, and wormed his way into our hearts. He has changed from an anxious, cowering dog into a fun-loving, confident one. We've learned a lot from Jingle, too. He taught us some valuable lessons about the true nature of pit bulls and how fighting dogs can be rehabbed with patience and love. This is the story of how that happened, how Jingle went from fighter to lover, Rescued by Love.
