These Rescued Pit Bulls Just Melted Our Frozen Hearts

There's a solution to the winter blues right here.

With absolutely frigid weather in most parts of the country right now, heartwarming rescue stories are just what the doctor ordered to help combat the winter blues. So, while we're inside thawing off, we took the time to scroll through Instagram to find some sweet Pit Bulls, or “Pibbles”, who were given a second chance at life when their awesome parents adopted them.

How can you not fall in love with a dog like Odie, or those featured in the Flower Power, Pit Bulls of the Animal Revolution series?! Fortunately, a new day has come for Pit Bulls, thanks to many owners who are trying to help educate others and banish some of the ill-informed stereotypes with their fun loving social media accounts for their pups. Here are a few of our faves! 

Angelina

Cute, freckle-faced Angelina is loving her new life which is filled with kitty cuddles, long walks (and naps), and a steady dose of sunshine.

Gracie

Life really is beautiful for sweet Princess Gracie. Thanks to her mama and all of their adventures together, she has put her previous life behind her. 

Monty

Monty has learned that there can be a wonderful life after abuse. And love. So much love. That smile though! 

Mocha

Mocha’s happily-ever-after story started this past September when her parents spotted her homeless and cold on the streets of Brazil. She was nursed back to health and has been showered with companionship and cuddles ever since! Good luck with your move to the Big Apple, Mocha! 

Stig

Big hugs to Chris and Mariesa Hughes who open their hearts and their home to senior shelter dogs in need of some serious TLC. Stig is just one of their rescues, and thanks to their unwavering love and support, he’s been getting the treatment and care he needs for his recent cancer diagnosis.

Xena, or “Xena the Pibble Princess” as her parents like to call her, is an adorable blue nose Pit Bull who was rescued at just four months old. Although her parents don’t know much about her past, they are certain she was saved from a very dangerous fate. With a lot of love and and patience, they are hoping to help cure her of her fears and anxieties! 

Keeva

In love with my babies 🖤🐶🐶 // #keeva #vader #dogmom #rescuemom

Life looks like so much fun for rescued Pitty Keeva! Alongside her Boston Terrier brother Vader, Keeva is certainly California dreamin’ these days. 

Molly

Lazy Sunday with my girls 😍 #pitbull #adoptdontshop #minime #pitbullsandkids

A post shared by Laura Smith (@lauraterrellphotography) on

Just this past October, Molly’s fresh new start at life commenced when mama Laura brought her home, a home she also shares with human sis Macie. Here’s a recent Molly update from her mama: “Sometimes it amazes me how resilient and forgiving animals are. Molly was treated so badly for years - nearly starved with broken ribs from being kicked and abused. Used for puppies - she’s had an estimated 11 litters. She is the most loving and gentle dog. She absolutely ADORES kids. She’s an old soul, I’m so lucky to have her.” In unison now, "awwwwwww."

Terra

 

You can’t help but feel all warm and fuzzy inside when you see how much joy rescued Pitty Terra has brought to her new mama and papa’s lives. It’s very apparent the adoration is mutual! 

Mya

Another recent adoption includes picture-perfect Pitty Mya, who is now spoiled with lots of chew toys and a very pawfect wardrobe!
