Many of us remember the story of the dog Gypsy, an abandoned pit bull in North Carolina, found by a good samaritan in horrible shape. Her story traveled around the Internet a few years back. She captured the hearts of many. Veterinary medical professionals took her case and perform reconstructive surgery on her jaw. Tri-County Animal Rescue
Just tooling through the Internet, I happened upon and update on dear, sweet Gypsy. Though this page is a little old (2006), Gypsy's story serves as a reminder that even pit bulls that have been horribly abused and likely fought, can become good pets and loving companions!
Thanks to Tri-County Animal Rescue and Gypsy for reminding us of the good things in life...

The old South Los Angeles Annex Shelter location will only house pit bulls, freeing up kennel space at the new facility for other, non-pit bull impounds. The pit bulls may receive training and rehabilition. Just as the dogs are maligned for their look or breed, so, too, are their handlers which are State of California Department of Corrections parolees. Handlers learn general dog care and training skills.
The Pit Bull Training Academy will have a Grand Opening event on August 4, 2007 from 10AM-5PM at the South Los Angeles Annex Shelter located at 3320 W. 36th St, Los Angeles, CA. For additional information and to RSVP, call 661-268-0555 or email Training@vrcpitbull.com
