To anyone out there that still thinks pit bulls are mean
or dangerous dogs, this video is about to change your mind.
This is Cruz.
He was rescued and brought to the San Bernadino city shelter earlier this year. When he was processed, they labeled him as “aggressive”
and he was isolated from the rest of the dogs, likely to be put down. People are not likely to adopt a dog marked “aggressive,” especially if they are a pit bull.
However, when shelter volunteer Maria Sanchez saw Cruz alone in his concrete cell, she saw something different. Rather than see him as a monster with violent tendencies, she saw a dog in the grips of fear and uncertainty, lashing out as a means of self-preservation and not aggression.So she took a chance.Maria knelt down, stuck her fingers through the bars, and in a soft, soothing voice, she coaxed the “aggressive” dog
into letting her touch him. And the results, well, they speak for themselves.
