Support builds commitment

Mohamed and Belqis were surprised when a frightened pit bull ran tail-tucked into their East Oakland grocery store and hid. They stopped their staff from shooing her back out. “She needs help,” they said. They named her Missy, but had no idea what to do next.

Their friends and neighbors initially gave them a hard time about keeping her and they were torn about what to do, but their confidence with having her in their home increased once they started BR’s Pit Ed classes. By the time they came to a Nut Truck event for her spay, they had bonded.  Mohamed walked into the event like a pro dog handler, smiling brightly. It looked like they’d been together for years. 

As you might guess, soon after, they hinted that they’d grown attached and wished to keep her.
