This Rescued Pit Bull Is Saving Lives

Meet The Rescued Pit Bull Named Libby

Pit Bulls do not deserve the negative stereotype that has been placed on them. They are as loving, sweet, and loyal as any other dog. Libby is no different, but she had a rough start. Libby was rescued from a shelter back in 2011. Because of her breed, she almost wasn’t given a chance at life. Libby was the only puppy in her litter spared from euthanasia. After Libby was rescued, she was placed in foster care until they could find a home for her. Libby’s high-energy and that negative stereotype for pit bulls made it difficult to find her a home.

After three years of searching, Libby found a home. Nowadays, this beautiful girl is doing her part to change the stereotype by becoming an official narcotics police dog just outside of Houston, Texas.

Rescued in 2011, Libby was the only puppy from her litter spared from euthanasia.

She was rescued by Marcia Piotter of Operation Pets Alive, who was determined to find her a great home.

The Operation Pets Alive association made an exception for this loving pooch.

Unfortunately, Libby’s reputation as a pit bull delayed her finding a good home for over 3 years.

The search eventually turned from finding Libby a home to seeing if she could be a service or work dog.

Piotter and Libby met with Brad Croft from Universal K9, an organization that trains shelter dogs to become police dogs. Brad was more than willing to take Libby in, but the cost of admission (close to $1,000) was too much for Piotter to afford on her own.

Luckily, local Pit Bull advocate Debra Guajardo provided help in raising the money.

Libby is an incredibly adept dog. After only a few months of training, Libby was officially ready to become part of the narcotics team at the Montgomery County Constable’s Fourth Precinct.
