Another pit bull happy ending

Lora, a four-year-old pit bull was left at an animal shelter in Los Angeles in Nov. 2012. She was aloof, quiet, and hung out in the back of the kennel, her eyes usually downcast. She clearly had a past. Luckily she was noticed by the good people at Best Friends Animal Rescue who took her in for training and one-on-one attention.

With just a few weeks of love, training and special attention, Lora blossomed. Who would have guessed that Lora, a dog that once hid in the back of the kennel and refused to make eye contact, was, in fact, the biggest lover of them all?

"She is a big, sloppy, love me pit bull," says Layne "There is no aggression there."

Majely Luquin, 28, who works in medical billing, went to the NKLA facility looking for a companion for her aging pit bull, Zoe. She thought a younger, smaller dog would be the ticket. Instead, she came across Lora and knew she was the one. As soon as Lora, now named Penny, and Zoe (who is 13) met, it was destined to be. The dogs, nearly identical to one another in breed, color, size and temperament, have a familial relationship. Now, the two dogs can't stop licking each other. Instead of fighting over the bed, the two dogs share it, often "spooning" one another. Penny still does "pancake" on the floor on occasion, but that's only because she doesn't want to leave her family's side.

1. My rescue dog would not look at me or let me touch her at first

took months of stealth petting to get her love, now I can hardly keep her off me, she is a hug machine. After years of rewarding her for looking me in the eye, she will stare me down for a treat now. She is miserable when I leave her at the sitter and then stuck to me like glue when I pick her up, I don't even want to think what it would be like if I kenneled her.
