Batman became one of my landfill dogs. He was originally brought into the shelter after showing up around Christmas on someone's front porch and refusing to leave.
When I first met him, Batman was just about a year old - a fully grown puppy who no one had taken the time to train. He was lovable, rambunctious, affectionate and goofy. But as a black pit bull mix (which are a dime a dozen in shelters across the country), he waited for five months without foster care or adoptive interest. We made him part of the Landfill Dogs project in late January 2014.
At last, in April 2014, a family fell in love with him and adopted him. I had the chance to visit them twice after the adoption. Batman was equally as wild with happiness. He ran in circles on the back of his new family's furniture with excitement. He had a new canine sister and a human infant to protect. He seemed blissful.
