Happy Rescue Stories Friday Friends!! We're back today for our first Rescue Story of 2023!
If you've been following along over this past year, you know that during these ruff times, animal shelters and organizations have been struggling to maintain enough funding and supplies to support the hundreds of adoptable dogs/pets in their shelters. We are doing everything we can to help their efforts!
At Fit & Go Pets we play an important role (sometimes big, sometimes small) in helping dog rescue parents and their dogs as they go through their rescue journey and adapt to a new life. We see, firsthand, entire lives changed for the better. We feel this role we serve is a big part of who we are as a company, and our duty, to help our community and help as many dogs and pawrents as possible. Learn how you can help at the bottom of this blog post.
And without further ado, we are so excited to introduce you to this month's Rescue Story which is EXTRA near and dear to our hearts... meet Rosie!
Rescue Stories: Meet Rosie
- Rescue date: November Oct. 26, 2022
- Breed: American Bulldog Mix
- Approximate age: 5 years and 2 month
- Personality: Friendly, loving and playful.

Her Fit & Go Pets Family tells us Rosie’s Story:
Rosie was found by one of our employees as a stray in the streets of downtown Miami, with a severe skin irritation in her belly - We believe it was due to trauma. No one knows her backstory, but given her injuries, we know she spent a very long time in the street and was not having a good life.
We welcome her into our dogobsessed family with all our love; hoping that soon we can find her a forever home, where she can be loved and spoiled! In the beginning she was pretty scared and nervous; but by week two, she was enjoying herself and recovering well. She is such a wonderful, loving, and sweet dog. We know that she will be the perfect dog for the family that will receive her, she has given us so much love and happy moments, we are so happy to care for her and have the opportunity to change her life.
The greatest lesson:
Patience is everything when it comes to rescues. These dogs have unknown origins and trauma that has shaped the way they move in the world. It's important to provide them with the structure to feel safe and the training to gain confidence. It’s hard work, but it’s 100% worth it to see the progress and the love they can give you.
