The man took home two ᴀʙᴀɴᴅᴏɴᴇᴅ pit bulls from ᴛʜᴇ sʜᴇʟᴛᴇʀ, and later they fully showed their gratitude

Rescue animals feel grateful for every day they get to spend off the streets, and with their beloved owners. It was no different for these two Pitbulls, who heroically sᴄᴀʀᴇᴅ off ʙᴜʀɢʟᴀʀs to sᴀᴠᴇ their owner’s ʟɪꜰᴇ during an attempted ʀᴏʙʙᴇʀʏ. Robert McGowan’s two pitties, who are named Ladybug and Elabelle, weren’t always lucky enough to have the loving home they have now. They started ʟɪꜰᴇ as rejected strays, who went from one shelter to the next. McGowan was the first human to see past their appearance and into their sweet and loving souls.

Because of their breed, no one had the courage to take them home.  Pitbulls are known to be ᴅᴀɴɢᴇʀᴏᴜs and ᴀɢɢʀᴇssɪᴠᴇ, however, Robert saw a gentle sweetness in them. In fact, these doggos probably would have found their forever home ages ago if people had bothered to take notice!

As he explained : “They’re very docile and timid. They’re not ᴀɢɢʀᴇssɪᴠᴇ at all.”

All Ellabelle and Ladybug wanted was some good old fashioned love and a human BFF to hang out with. But instead, they were ɴᴇɢʟᴇᴄᴛᴇᴅ and ᴀʙᴜsᴇᴅ early on in ʟɪꜰᴇ. Sadly, ʟɪꜰᴇ wasn’t exactly a walk in the dog park when they arrived at ᴛʜᴇ sʜᴇʟᴛᴇʀ. Because of the bad reputation and misconception of most people about their breed, they’re often overlooked by potential dog adopters. That is until Robert came along and gave them a second chance. In return for giving them a forever home, these two amazing fur babies gave their new master something he would never forget.A few months ago, McGowan was relaxing in his garage, sitting next to his car. With his guard was down, and the overhead door up, something unexpected suddenly happened. Four sᴛʀᴀɴɢᴇʀs ʙᴜʀsᴛ ɪɴᴛᴏ his garage and knocked him on the ground with a ᴘᴜɴᴄʜ to his left eye. The four men commanded him to give them his car keys. Shocked and slightly woozy, the man replayed that the keys were inside the house. Tʜᴇ Tʜɪᴇᴠᴇs rushed inside his house, not knowing that the car keys aren’t the only thing that’s waiting for them inside.

“They chased them out. My girls ran into the garage and stood over me. They stood there barking, making it clear that no one was going ᴛᴏ ʜᴜʀᴛ me anymore. The four people took off.” Robert’s two new BFF’s had sᴀᴠᴇᴅ the day – and his ʟɪꜰᴇ! Although Robert sᴜꜰꜰᴇʀᴇᴅ a mean black eye in the ᴀᴛᴛᴀᴄᴋ, nothing was stolen, and more importantly, he didn’t come into any more harm.That was, of course, all due to the bravery of his rescue pups! When Ellabelle and Ladybug weren’t being couch potatoes, they were more than willing to step up and become the ultimate doggy heroes.

“They are ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇs. Unwanted dogs. They sᴀᴠᴇᴅ my ʟɪꜰᴇ. Please consider adopting a rescue. They might sᴀᴠᴇ ʏᴏᴜʀ ʟɪꜰᴇ too.”

McGowan hopes that his story will inspire others to adopt Pitbulls, and see them for the sweet and compassionate beings that they are. Following the event, the man posted on Facebook: “They are ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇs. Unwanted dogs. They sᴀᴠᴇᴅ my ʟɪꜰᴇ. Please consider adopting a rescue. They might sᴀᴠᴇ ʏᴏᴜʀ ʟɪꜰᴇ too.” Well put McGowan, ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇs will be there for you when you need them, just like you’ve been there for them.
