The Charlotte-Mecklenburg police rescued 27 pit bulls and arrested two men in what they are calling the biggest dog fighting operation they’ve ever seen. The two men arrested, Melvin Smith and Lefonze Williams, were both charged with felony training of animals with the purpose of dog fighting and baiting. The dogs that were taken from the operation are evidence in the case but they will be sent to a rehab facility and will be observed so they can be adopted. The dogs had some scarring, but overall were healthy and happy, said Chris Dozier of Animal Care and Control. The officers who responded to the scene had heard dogs barking behind a large fence on the property and then they saw a few pit bulls chained to spiked driving into the ground. The Animal Care and Control was called to the scene and the officers had found evidence “consistent with training dogs for the purposes of fighting” and there was aerial footage also showed more evidence of the dog fighting operation. 

The officers obtained a search warrant and found the 27 dogs, a dog fighting arena and other evidence like tethers, antibiotics for the animals and also two few week old puppies dead on the property.

In march of this year a pit bull named Gladys found a newborn baby bunny outside their family home. The pit bull Gladys led her owners to the baby bunny, Gladys was nudging it with her nose, and when the mom Heather arrived home she asked Gladys where the bunny had come from, Gladys then led her over to three more newborn baby bunnies.  There was no mother rabbit around, so Heather decided to call the local wildlife rescuer. When the wildlife rescuer took the bunnies away, Gladys went back outside and laid down where the baby bunnies nest was, she seemed very sad for the nest few hours.  The wildlife rescuer called Heather to tell her 2 of the bunnies died but the other 2 survived and asked if he could bring the bunnies back to Gladys, and Gladys was so excited to see the newborn baby bunnies return. She was so happy to see how well the bunnies were doing. The day of the bunnies rescue there was a huge snowstorm and without Gladys, the bunnies would have died.  All thanks to Gladys the pit bull for her loving and gentle touch that the baby bunnies were saved and sent back into the wild. Its these stories that make me happy, it shows that pit bulls aren’t these vicious dogs everybody thinks they are. So many people only look at the bad things that pit bulls have done, and never at the good things like this story. There are so many heroic pit bulls out there like Gladys that have done so many amazing things, and any pit bull can be a hero. Its in their nature to be a sweet, loving, gentle, and friendly dog.
