Letter: Thank you, for bringing friendly pitbull to WAIF


An open letter to the person who dropped our dog at the pound: Whether your intentions were good or bad, we are thankful that you chose to take our beloved Jackson to WAIF today.

That little rascal got out of our yard when the wind blew our gate open. He could have been hit by a car, stolen by someone who thought we were neglectful — he’s pretty friendly, right? — or worse, someone who’s afraid of pit bulls.

Can you imagine? They could have shot him or something of that nature.

So, thank you, for being the kind of person who picks up a strange dog and drops him at the pound. We hope he gave you lots of wiggles and kisses.

Gratefully yours, a couple of animal lovers.
