Man Saves Pit Bulls Before They’re Euthanized, Gives Them A Secure Place To Live

It’s no secret that Pit Bulls get a bad rap, and sadly, shelters all over the world are filled with Pit Bulls who are waiting to get adopted and never do.

“Everybody assumes these dogs are like these baby killing monsters. Pit bulls have a problem, a big problem, in every major city. Every pound is full of them and there’s not enough rescues to take them,” Jason Flatt told WSB-TV.


So Flatt, who resides in Paulding County, Georgia, is taking steps of his own to get as many of these Pit Bulls out of shelters and pounds as possible.

He is currently building a safe place for Pit Bulls and Pit Bull mixes on 46 acres, that’s considered a first-of-its-kind shelter.


Flatt’s home is already filled with kennels for Pit Bulls who he has rescued from shelters. The majority of these Pit Bulls have experienced some sort of trauma in their lives and had a hart time getting adopted.

“Every one of them has a story. The stories don’t matter. It’s the endings that we look to change,” Flatt told WSB-TV.


Flatt and his team of helpers care for these dogs 24/7 and not only help give them purpose, but show them what love is for the first time in their lives.

Since Flatt’s own home is already at full capacity, he’s hoping his Pit Bull facility will be completed within the next three years.


Flatt says it will be an actual state-of-the-art facility, where each dog will have their own 40-foot run, half covered, half concrete, half open, and half grass.

They will also have a vet area, an indoor play area, and a pool for the dogs to go swimming in.

In addition to getting these Pit Bulls out of shelters and pounds, Flatt will also work hard to find each dog a good home.

The ones who don’t get adopted will get to live out their lives under Flatt’s care at his home for them.

Lucky Elderly Man Is Greeted Every Day By A “Friend” Who Crawls Out Of The Ice:

We’ve all seen some unique and unlikely friendships over the years, but this one here may take the cake!

One day, a starving otter appeared at an elderly man’s door wanting some food. Ever since, Seppo Laamanen, 65, and Iivari the otter have been inseparable best friends.

It all started when Seppo fed worms and fish to the small and malnourished otter who was clearly looking for food.

After that, the friendly animal repaid the kindness by visiting the man at his home in Punkaharju in easter Finland. This was the start of something special.

There’s no way Seppo could’ve ever imagined it’d all lead to this. This adorably unique friendship is one for the ages, and it’s something you have to see to believe.

There’s nothing like the bond between two friends regardless of the species! 🙂

10 Of The “Most Loyal” Dog Breeds On The Planet

Giving love and support to humans is something that some dogs do better than others.

While many dogs love everyone they meet and are willing to take treats or belly rubs from anyone, the pups we found are just the opposite.

These 10 dogs are some of the most loyal breeds on the planet. They are rock steady in their loyalty to their owner no matter what.

1) Akita

When the American Kennel Club (AKC) lists loyalty to describe the temperament of the Akita, you know they mean business. The beautiful double-coated working dog of Japanese ancestry is considered hardwired in protecting those she loves. They should be socialized with other dogs and people from the time they are puppies. Their silly, fun, but dignified personalities round out the loyal Akita.

2) Boxer

This working dog is smart, full of energy, and oh so loyal to their family. They get along great with kids and have an innate instinct to protect their pack. He’s a watchdog with a heart of gold who oozes dedication to his owner.

3) Skye Terrier

Known as the “small dog with the big ears,” this adorable breed hails from the Scottish Isle of Skye, hence the name. Whether you live in the city or the country, this small dog with a big personality is steadfast in snuggling, playtime, and remaining loyal to his owners.

4) Beagle

This merry hound is friendly, curious and incredibly loyal. While he doesn’t mind the occasional couch potato time, this spunky pooch is energetic and merry. A fun fact about this hound: the breed standard is for 13 inches and under and another in the 13-15 inch category. No matter how you size him, these adorable dogs just want to cling to you.

5) Shar-Pei

This wrinkly non-sporting breed is standoffish to strangers but very loyal to his owner. His ancient Chinese roots are part of the charm of the Shar-Pei. Regal, strong, and smart, if you want a BFF for life, this loose-skinned pooch may be the right choice for you.
