The Vick case became a model for how to handle dog fighting cases, including the Missouri 500. Courts and law enforcement agencies across the country are embracing the humane trend of giving dogs rescued from fighting rings a second chance. - Ledy, from her blogpost
The one thing that Ledy didn't write into this page is herself. People who know her and who've read Malcolm Gladwell's landmark book "The Tipping Point" point to Ledy as a classic 'Connector' ... That is, someone who seems to know everyone and knows how to sew them together. This article is like a peek into's Ledy's busy rolodex, which she used then and still uses today to bring "the helpers" together towards the goal of getting our dogs out of the gutter they've been tossed in.
Ledy's MO bust dog Karma ... just like our recent placement Daisy ... just like the fabulous Hector, Sweet Jasmine, Little Red, Haley, Monkey, Josie, Jhumpa, Leo, Georgia, Jonny Justice, Audie, Vessa ... shall I go on? They and their owners are all going above and beyond the call of duty to show us that rock star pit bulls aren't the exception, they're the rule.
Feeling grateful today to everyone who stuck their neck out "then" for the dogs, and who continues to stick it out there for the dogs - now - no matter where they come from. You history makers, you.
