After a year of searching, Hanson and her husband came across a post on Craigslist. Someone not far from their neighborhood in San Antonio, Texas, was selling a pit bull for $500 who looked suspiciously like Blake.
“We went in pretending like, ‘Oh, we’re just going to buy a dog.’ We had our money ready,” Hanson said. “When we went back there and confirmed it was him, they had him on the biggest chain that I’d ever seen.”
“He was pretty messed up for a while,” Hanson added. “That whole rehabilitation was a process, but now he’s the biggest teddy bear.”
