Gremlin, a Dog with a Cause

Pit Bull Pride - Day #18

Gremlin (what a great name!) is a very inspirational pooch! Not only does she have a gorgeous smile, but she has become a therapy dog with Therapy Dog Inc and spends time bringing cheer to everyone from children in hospitals to seniors in nursing homes!

Gremlin has seen the absolute worst in humanity, but it hasn't dampened her spirit. After surviving abuse, including having her vocal chords severed with a baseball bat by her abuser and suffering as a bait dog in a fighting operation, Gremlin found her redemption with an  police officer, who purchased both her and her mother during an undercover operation. Unfortunately, the disgusting human being(s) responsible for Gremlin's past were never charged for abusing her and dozens of other dogs. 

Today, Gremlin is bringing cheer to those that she visits during her therapy work as well as running her very own facebook page (well, I am sure that she has some help there!). 

Gremlin's mission is to raise awareness about her wonderful breed of pup and to spread the message against dog fighting and abuse! She is also the face of her rescue organization, Rowdy to the Rescue, a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to rescuing companion animals from high-kill shelters and placing them into the perfect forever homes!
