The fantastic thing about dogs is that even if they have had a traumatic past, they can still be taught to trust humans. With just the right amount of love and attention, dogs can relearn how to love us and become the sweetest and most loyal pets.
This is proven by two Pit Bulls who were previously neglected by their owner. They were surrendered to a shelter because nobody wanted them and the responsibility of caring for them. Fortunately, one man saw their potential to be good pets and adopted them.
Returning the favor
Robert McGowan fell in love with Ellabelle and Ladybug the moment he saw them. He said that they were very timid and docile and didn’t show any aggression. He adopted the two and showed what it was to be loved. And each day, the two dogs became more attached to him.
Their loyalty to Robert was proven one fateful night when four men tried to rob him and steal his car. Robert was then in his garage, sitting by his car. His garage door was open.
Suddenly, four men went inside the garage and rushed towards Robert. Without hesitation, one of them punched Robert in the face causing him to fall over. One of the assailants demanded the keys to his car. Dazed, he told them that the keys were inside his house.
Unbeknownst to the men, just behind the door were Ellabelle and Ladybug. The two loyal dogs heard the commotion and rushed to the door. When the robbers opened it, the two dogs quickly jumped at them.
The attackers were taken aback by the sudden attack and ran away. The two dogs then went to Robert and stood by him, barking furiously as if telling the men to keep away from Robert. The two dogs saved Robert from incurring any more injuries. He only suffered a small black eye.
Robert’s decision to be kind to two unwanted dogs and love them unconditionally was returned thousand times over.
