My name is Charlie. I am less than 2 years old. I was bred by people that didn’t care much about me. They sold me to someone that didn’t care much about me.
When I was 12 weeks old, that person took me to Jackson County Animal Control. They were going to put me to sleep because I’m a Pit Bull.
A kind volunteer saw her carrying me inside and asked her why. She said I was going to be too big for where she lived. I wish she had thought about that before she bought me but she didn’t.
The nice volunteer took me home rather than let me be put to sleep. She cared about me but she couldn’t keep me. She asked her friends at Take Paws to help me find a home. Now her friends are my friends too. They care about me.
When I was six months old, they found me a home! They asked lots of questions. One woman answered them all right. We went to meet her and she seemed nice. A week later, she came to pick me up from Take Paws. She took me to obedience classes and sometimes I went to work with her. I loved my cat and ferett siblings. I loved my mom.
But she didn’t care much about me either. Even though she signed a contract that said she would return me to Take Paws if she couldn’t keep me, she didn’t. When I was a year old, she left me at Michigan Humane Society. She told them she couldn’t keep up with me anymore. They were going to put me to sleep because I am a Pit Bull.
A nice person at MHS decided to scan me for a microchip because I was such a good boy. They found one! The microchip said that I belonged to Take Paws. Take Paws cares about me! The same kind volunteer that saved me from death at Animal Control picked me up and took me back to Take Paws.
Now I’m almost two years old. I love my family at Take Paws. There is a baby that likes to crawl on me, cats that like to tease me and dogs, big and small, that I can play with. I am happy here but sometimes, I am sad.
I am sad when my friends get adopted. I am lonely when they go and I’m left behind.
I am sad when people say, “He’s a Pit Bull.” and that means that I am bad. I don’t do bad things. I love other animals. I don’t know how to fight. I know how to give kisses. I know how to wag my whole body. I know when people around me are sad and I lay my head in their laps and make them feel better.
Everyday I wait to meet new people. They tell me here, someone will find me. Someone will love me for their own. Someone will care about me and keep me forever. Someone wants a running buddy. Someone wants a loyal friend. Someone has a dog that needs a buddy to play with. Someone has a kid that wants a dog to fetch. I am all of those things and I am a good boy. I am not mad at the people who didn’t care about me. I am too busy looking forward for the chances yet to come.
