When a man came in to Silicon Valley Animal Control Authority to surrender a lovable, sociable pit bull as a stray, the staff didn't really believe him. The dog seemed to be his own - and the more they learned about the dog, the more they could see how hard the man had worked to socialize his pet.
The shelter staff contacted Bad Rap, a group that helps train and rehabilitate pit bulls, because they thought the dog might need a little extra attention before heading on to his forever home. When staff from Bad Rap met the pup, they fell in love with him - and couldn't help but be thankful to his previous owner for doing such a good job raising him.
The group wrote a letter on Facebook addressed "Dear Former Owner of this dog," thanking whoever had to give him up for taking such good care of him while he had him.
