I’m a firm believer in dogs being naturally kind and loving. There is no such thing as a bad dog, only bad owners. A lot of people think that certain dog breeds are naturally aggressive or mean. However, this isn’t the case. When dogs are in a loving environment, they also learn to trust people.
Pit bulls are one of the types of dogs that are considered by many as unsuitable as family pets. When people see pit bulls, they often say that it should be put down, or people cross the street just to avoid crossing paths with the dog. It’s sad that this happens because pit bulls are so adorable and loving that they were even considered in the past as America’s nanny dog.
When people come to shelters to adopt dogs, they don’t usually choose a senior pit bull. The first reason is that they’re already old, and the second reason is simply that they’re pit bulls. However, a couple who came to adoption event soon found out that adopting a senior pit bull is definitely worth it.
A couple named Leslie and Eric were in a senior dog adoption event when a senior pit bull named Kurbis fell into Eric’s lap. Eric wasn’t fond of pit bulls at all, but there was something about Kurbis that changed his mind about pit bulls, which made the couple decide to give Kurbis a second chance by adopting him.
The eyes that Kurbis gave Eric and Leslie were the eyes of a creature that clearly wants to love and be loved. As soon as Eric and Leslie took Kurbis home, they immediately felt that they made the right decision. The first eight years of Kurbis’s life are an unknown mystery.
However, there were telltale signs that Kurbis was probably a victim of an atrocious activity called dogfighting. Kurbis had scars all over his body, and he was also missing all of his teeth. Kurbis also had chunks of flesh missing from his ears and tongue. When Kurbis was younger, it’s suspected that he was a bait dog.
At first, Kurbis didn’t know how to be a dog. He didn’t even know basic commands, and Eric and Leslie needed to start from the basic. Kurbis didn’t even know what toys were and didn’t care much for them.
However, as soon as Kurbis began to realize that he’s in a safe place with wonderful people that will never hurt him, his personality soon started to shine. It seemed like Kurbis was getting younger each day that he was living with Eric and Leslie.
Kurbis even started acting like a puppy again. Kurbis loves going out for walks and runs, and he also found out a way to get the attention of his human parents, which was to lay on his back until Eric or Leslie notices him and carries him.
Kurbis also loves doggie sweaters. As soon as Eric or Leslie shows Kurbis that they’re about to put something on him, Kurbis will present himself. Another puppy trait that Kurbis developed is the love for bubble wrap. Whenever Eric or Leslie opens a package with bubble wrap inside, Kurbis will immediately take the bubble wrap and shred it.
Although people who meet Kurbis are a little intimidated because he’s a pit bull and because of his scars, they start falling in love with him as soon as they get to know the sweet dog that Kurbis is. Kurbis is very trusting and would let people pet him. Here’s a video showing how Kurbis finally found happiness thanks to a lovely couple who gave him a chance to be a puppy again.
