Memories...The moment that started it all...


This is a picture of the first time we saw Haleigh Anne.
We were at The Walk for Gage in Horn Lake, Mississippi.
Memphis Pit Bull Safe Haven had brought her and her litter mates, but they were not adoptable yet.
I remember thinking how beautiful she was, but it was not until we got home that we realized we had to have her.
By the graces of God I was able to track her down and the day I found her I filled out the application for her.
Her litter mates had Parvo real bad - Haleigh was the only one who did not get sick - but we had to wait two weeks after we were approved for her adoption to pick her up.

Now anyone adopting a dog from a rescue, especially a pit bull, knows how rigorous the adoption process is. 5 page application, reference checks, home visits... the whole enchilata.
But it was so worth it; she is our angel baby love child and it is in her horor that we are starting our rescue.

This was the moment that started it all...

  2. This picture always makes me tear up. I so distinctly remember the moment I saw her. There were like 200 dogs there that day, but she was the one I wanted to hold the most.
    The little girl holding her was so sweet I could not bear to take her from her.
    But I fell in love.
    And I am so grateful I was able to find her!
