New York Pit Bull finds sisterly love
A New York convent recently brought a new member into their fold. Remy, a nine-year-old Pit Bull, was adopted by three of the convent’s sisters after they saw the older dog languishing in a local shelter. “As soon as I saw the sign that said ‘9 years,’ I said, ‘This is the one,” Sister Veronica Mendez told TODAY Show reporter Laura T. Coffey. “No one is going to want this one.” Indeed, Remy had been at the shelter for more than three months, her gray muzzle and breed serious barriers for adoption. The sisters were looking for a new dog to welcome into their home after losing a beloved dog to cancer. They decided to adopt a shelter dog in danger of being euthanized, and were directed to Remy, who now enjoys walks, multiple cushy dog beds, and oodles of love.
