  1. My heart is broken for this family, especially their 2 yr old son, who misses his best friend 🙁 This story is devastating to me! My Sadie could be this dog’s twin, and it scares me that so many ignorant people, are running around with guns…. he “thought” it was a Pitbull????? OMG! Pitbulls are the sweetest dogs on the planet! I’m a 62 yr old woman, and have had many dogs in my lifetime… My 1st Pitbull mix was back in 1978! I have rescued horribly abused Pitbulls, dogs that should hate humans, because of the abuse they endured….. But every 1 of them, were so loving and so goofy, they would make me smile every day…. If you have ever seen a Pitbull smile, it fills your heart…. and MOST of them do smile! 🙂
