This Shy Pup Wanted To Hide From The World! His New Family Stepped In And Taught Him How To Trust!
By Victoria Lange
This shy Pit Bull, now named Pudge, was found as a stray and taken to the shelter. Once at the shelter his life did not get better like it should have. The shelter had planned to euthanize him until a woman named Melissa, who is now his mom, stepped in and saved him. Melissa had seen one photo of the shy pup and fallen in love so she decided to take him into her home as a foster pup.
Once he was taken to his new home, it was as if he shut down. He was so quiet and so shy, an ultimately preferred to be alone. And while his new mom was unhappy with the way he shied away from everyone, she did not let that stop her. She grew determined to break Pudge out of his shell and refused to give up on him. Instead, she and her family used every opportunity to show him just how much they loved him. They talked to him, cuddled with him, and even sang to him. Well, it turns out that the singing is what did the trick. According to Melissa, one day they were singing to him and Pudge decided to sing back! He started howling along to their song and ever since that moment, Pudge hasn’t stopped expressing himself and his momma couldn’t be more proud!
Pudge has officially broken out of his shell and has become the excited pup he should have always been! It’s all thanks to Melissa! He and his new momma really do share a special bond, all because she refused to give up on him! And according to his Facebook page (yes, he has his own Facebook, it’s called Pudge The Pit), his foster became his permanent forever home because Melissa decided to adopt him. Now he lives his happily ever after with his new family and two canine brothers.
