“I think dogs are the most amazing creatures;


For me they are the role models for being alive.” 


 


Gilda Radner


 


 


He had suffered ever so greatly


Under Katrina’s very vicious attack


While racing for safety - struck by a car


He horrendously now had a broken back


 


He was found in a deserted home


Lying there sprawled on a filthy mat


And he was soon rushed to the pet clinic


This dog wanted to live no doubt about that


 


After weeks of veterinary care and treatment


This courageous canine who was named Red


Has remained an inspiration to all who’ve met him


Since he’s always happy and never filled with dread


 


If you stop to pet or chat with him


Red gets this huge smile on his face


And if you want to play fetch with him


He very excitedly rushes off on the chase


 


Red has lost the use of his back legs


And he has to scoot along on the floor


But this courageous mutt does it so willingly


He’s one Katrina victim that we all now adore


 


Pit Bull terriers have been given a very bad reputation


But the majority of Pits we’ve rescued are very sweet


Our dear old Red lavishes everyone with doggie kisses


As he rushes to the front door where everyone he greets


 


Donated rescue funds are now being utilized


To purchase a wheeled scooter for our friend


And we can’t wait to see this incredible dog


Joyously racing through the halls without end


 


And there are hundreds of pet rescue stories


Just as incredible and as heartwarming as this


Thanks to all who sent donations to these orphans


You’ve filled many animals and rescuers with bliss

The moment I ever hear of a animal attacking........I question the owners and wonder how it was brought up. Mean dogs are usually the result of abuse. Thanks for sharing this delightful write with us.

Red he most certainly is, Ed. Those scooter thingeys are just amazing and such fun... at least, they look it. This guy is destined to keep creaming ALL the attention at this rate, but it is no less than he and all the other brave animal warriors deserve after such traumatic life experiences. Puts a new complexion on "I Will Survive!" Heartwarming, thank you... looks like there is a great BONFIRE of stoked hearts on this page tonight, Buddy!! Kate xx
