“I have a special place in my heart for pit bulls,” Shelton told The Dodo. “I think they’re a very misunderstood dog and a misunderstood breed. And when I saw her in that video, literally crying in a cage, I cried. My kids cried. I showed my husband, and he said we could go look at her tomorrow.”
The next morning, several families lined up at the shelter to meet Cinnamon, but Shelton and her family members were the first in line. And when they met Cinnamon, they fell in love.
