Remembering Alyssa – The Last Walk

By | General | 14 Comments

There were tons of things I had to get done around the house. I was hosting Christmas for my family in less than twenty-four hours, but I needed to take a little break from the unfolding chaos, and my never-ending procrastination. Some rooms in my house were halfway cleaned, some had gifts scattered about. I stressed myself out over hosting Christmas even though my only guests would be my dad, my brothers and my nieces. Despite that, planning to have a perfectly clean house and a fully-prepared meal was usually something that happened only on special occasions. Like Christmas.

I sent Alyssa a text message around noon to see if she wanted to take the dogs on a walk. It was exactly what I needed to clear my head from the Christmas stress I had enveloped myself in. She immediately responded and said she’d love to go on a walk. Alyssa had to work until 1:00, so we agreed to meet at 2:00 at a nearby park. I received another text message from Alyssa asking, “Who are you bringing?” Read More

No Experience Necessary

If you look closely at the collars of Kim and Kris Gerlach’s dogs, you’ll see a round yellow tag on two of them. On that tag are four words: “I’m a Therapy Dog”. The Gerlachs take a lot of pride in the work they do with their dogs, Victor and Nikki. Lady, their newest addition, will likely follow in the paw prints of her adopted big brother and sister.

Remembering Hector

It’s hard to believe it’s already been a year since Hector passed away.  We’re sharing the Facebook post from that day to remind us of the fond memories he created, and because the message still rings true.  The support we’ve received through the Hector Fund has been nothing short of amazing, and we thank all of our supporters for making it happen.  It has allowed us to care for dogs rescued from abusive situations and find them a better home, and we look forward to helping others with your continued support.

A Chance to Change Lives

By | Every Day Dog | One Comment

Marla Moore and Chance live in Lakewood, Colorado and have been a therapy team for two years. They are certified through two therapy dog organizations: Pet Partners and Alliance of Therapy Dogs. Due to living in a state with some of the most stringent Breed-Specific legislation currently in place, Marla has devoted her advocacy efforts to educating the public and providing community outreach for Animals For Therapy, of which she is a member. This involves being a resource for anyone with pit bull related questions, therapy or otherwise. She believes that having Chance out in the community as an ambassador is the most effective way to change people’s perceptions of pit bull type dogs. They continue to change people’s minds one visit at a time while providing comfort, joy and healing utilizing the powerful human animal bond.

Don’t Let the Frown Fool You!

By | Every Day Dog | No Comments

Kane was surrendered to a rescue at 6 weeks old but the rescue didn’t want a pit bull, so they wanted to send him to a shelter. Cassie couldn’t let that happen and ended up keeping him. Kane introduced Cassie into the 4H world, where they competed for 6 years earning multiple grand and reserve grand champion titles. Their first year was a little rough, because the parents did not like the idea of having a pit bull type dog around their children or dogs, but Kane was eventually a favorite among everyone.

Each year Pit Bulletin Legal News Network presents the Wallace Award to an individual that brings positive attention for pit bull type dogs and generates an atmosphere of change throughout the year.  The Wallace Award was named after our very own Wallace the Pit Bull, who was the inaugural recipient in 2012.  

Since the award is named after Wallace, and we at Wallace the Pit Bull Foundation want to help support efforts that improve the lives of dogs and the people who care for them, we plan on adding a little something to the award given by Pit Bulletin Legal News Network this year.  Besides the much deserved recognition and gratitude, Wallace the Pit Bull Foundation will donate $1,000 to the dog related charity of the recipient’s choice!  We are also making this retroactive and will be donating $1,000 to the charity of choice for each of the previous recipients, Rebecca Corry and Lori Weise.

Holly the Pibble – a true lifesaver

Ruth and Rick Johnson have lots of experience with dogs. They owned German Shorthaired Pointers for several years, but after their last German Shorthair passed away, they decided to look at other breeds of dogs. Weimaraners were a breed they were interested in, but Ruth had another type of dog in mind too. “I wanted a pit bull for years,” said Ruth, “But there just weren’t that many available here years ago.”

In October 2011, Ruth met Holly. The white dog with brindle patches on her back was a recent local surrender to Paws and Claws, an animal shelter in Rochester, MN. “She was so nice, and she was so pretty,” said Ruth. “I told Rick, ‘you have to meet this dog!’” Read More
