Randy Travis of Fox 5 Atlanta brings us the next dog, a pit bull female named Delilah who is currently fostered by his daughter.

Here’s Delilah’s story:

I found Delilah at Paulding County Animal Control in May in extremely bad shape. She was extremely underweight, no hair on her paws, and with a bad case of kennel cough. The second I walked into her kennel she came right up to me and rolled over with her tail wagging like crazy. After crying like a baby for a half hour, I called Jason from Friends to the Forlorn Pitbull Rescue. He agreed to take her on in his rescue and pay for all her veterinary care if I agreed to foster her. Of course I said yes. With two other dogs at home and three cats I felt I could give her a resting place to get her back on her paws and see what she was like in a home setting.

A few months after bringing her home and posting her on any site I could think of to find her forever home, I was contacted by someone who recognized her and knew about her past life. This woman lived next to the man who abused her for the first 4-6 years of her life. She said Delilah was constantly outside, rain or shine, crammed in a crate that was half the size of her. She had six litters by the time she was rescued and completely and totally neglected. The police were called and it was discovered that this man had not only been neglecting her, he’d been raising her puppies for fighting. Thankfully, he was sentenced to 2.5 years in jail.

I’ve loved every single second of having Delilah. But it’s time she go to her forever home. Knowing Delilah’s past, she understandably does not get along well with other dogs. Surprisingly enough though, Delilah adores cats. She’s about six years old. Besides having occasional issues with her joints she is healthy as a horse. Completely vaccinated and spayed (never having puppies again!) And she’s potty trained!The only issue we’ve had with her is her fear of storms.

Delilah would be a wonderful dog for any family that doesn’t currently have dogs. She’s wonderful with children, does not need a lot of room, can go on short walks but doesn’t require tons of exercise to be calm. After five minutes of playing she’s tired for four days! She’d be great for a busy family or a retired couple looking for a companion to hang out with during the day. Please consider adding Delilah to your family!
