Hi 4p4l. It’s been about 3 months since I adopted Sadie the pit bull. I’ve since then changed her name to olive and while I’d like to say it’s been smooth sailing between us that isn’t exactly the case. Olive is an extremely scared dog who has had an incredibly hard life up until we got her and that shows in our every day interactions. The first week I owned her she had stress induced colitis and would crawl behind my grill in the back yard and refuse to leave. This has since changed and while she hasn’t fully opened up she had made incredible progress along the way. Shes made best friends with my other dog bailey and many other furry friends when we go out for walks. Because she lost her other leg we quickly realized she wouldn’t be able to keep up on walks so I bought her a stroller for when she can’t finish the walk. This entire process of adopting a dog into my life has been crazy, overwhelming, and stressful, but I wouldn’t change it for the world. Olive is such an amazing dog and when she comes out of her shell it’s the best feeling in the world. The decision to adopt a dog was the best things I could have done for myself, and I’m glad to be able to give a dog a forever home.
