Neglected pit bull takes her freedom run out of shelter

August 6th, 2019

Aimee is a sweet, friendly pit bull who loves people more than anything in the world. In 2015, she was brought into Carson Animal Care Center, a high-kill shelter in California. The pup was scared and nervous, and she also had a painful skin condition.

Volunteers from the rescue group Saving Carson Shelter Dogs saw Aimee, and they quickly decided that they wanted to help her.

This rescue group films the dogs inside Carson Animal Care Center and posts the videos on their Facebook page. The publicity has led to many dogs getting adopted.

The rescue group shared a video of Aimee in her kennel. The sweet dog was so excited to have visitors!

“AIMEE is adorable, short and the sweetest little baby! She is super cute and once her skin heals she is going to feel amazing! Please SHARE for her life, she needs a TEMPERAMENT TEST requested IN PERSON by an Interested Party before the Shelter will allow her to be saved,” Saving Carson Shelter Dogs wrote in the description of the video.

Please SHARE for her life, she needs a TEMPERAMENT TEST requested IN PERSON by an Interested Party before the Shelter will allow her to be saved. Without this Test being ordered she can be PTS at any time after her Available date. A FOSTER or Adopter would save her life.

Saving Carson Shelter Dogs also shared a few cute photos of Aimee, including one of her sitting on a brightly colored blanket.

The photos and videos of Aimee worked, and just a few days after she arrived at the shelter, a family asked to adopt her!

Saving Carson Shelter Dogs took a video of Aimee’s freedom walk out of the shelter. Since Aimee was so excited, it was more of a freedom run!

Aimee excitedly said hello to all of her new family members, including her mom and dad and her three new brothers. One of the boys held Aimee’s leash as she took her first steps outside.

“AIMMEE (PHOENIX) has to be the cutest little hippo that ever took her FREEDOM RUN out of the Shelter into the arms of her new family! Thanks to all of you SHARING, she is Safe tonight. Happy life AIMEE,” Saving Carson Shelter Dogs.

A year after adopting her, Aimee’s mom, Kim Sullivan, shared a photo of the dog. Aimee’s skin condition had cleared up, and she looked happy and content in her new home.

“Here in all her shining glory almost 1 year later,” Kim wrote.

When Aimee got to the shelter, she was scared and worried she would never find a forever home. But now, she’s in a great place with a family who loves her more than anything.
