When Gigi the pit bull first came to Fairfield County Animal Control and Adoption Center in South Carolina last September, it didn’t take long for staffers to fall in love.
Gigi had a contagious smile — and every time the workers would enter the room, she’d be overjoyed. Gigi was picked up as a stray, but it was clear all she wanted was to be with someone.
“She was just a happy-go-lucky girl,” Samira Yaghi, a volunteer for the shelter, told The Dodo. “Just the sight of us walking in would make her perk up right away — she’d start smiling and her whole body would start wiggling.”
