Pit bull remains in his family home


Pit bull remains in his family home

If you look into the demolished attic of this New Orleans home, you can see the gorgeous, mournful face of a pit bull waiting for his family to return. After reading the story that appeared in the New York Times today, I am unsure as to whether the dogs they photographed were ultimately rescued, or just used as convenient models for their coverage.

WWLTV.com also has a slide show of a litter of starving pit bulls being rescued by boat.

Until now, I've been avoiding most of the animal coverage, in part because I think the human story is a priority. Today I want to go and help out, but I'm not allowed back. This is what is so baffling: the Times interviewed a woman from Atlanta who flew down to help collect animals. But those of us actually live there are still not allowed to return.

I just hope the pit bulls aren't needlessly put down. Particularly this cutie. He deserves a home.
