After six baths, the nervous puppy’s coat was finally free of grease, and the couple called Martin, who agreed to take in the stray on the spot. When Martin picked up the puppy that day, she was shocked by her petite size and nicknamed the dog the “Itty Bitty Pittie.”
A visit to the vet revealed that the 4-month-old pit bull was extremely underweight and battling worms, but otherwise healthy. The puppy was eager for food, but far less keen on human interaction.
“[She was] extremely timid in the beginning. I think someone was not very nice to her,” Martin explained. “But as the week’s gone on, we’ve started to see her personality come out, now that she realizes humans are the source of food and good things.”
