A two legged pitbull, his amazing fans, and an incredible organization.

I had a crazy week behind the wheel!  I went to Chicago, IL and Madison, WI for some family and shelter sessions, and the launch of the Six Legs Foundation at Fairways.

The Six Legs Foundation is named after two dogs:  Fifty the 2 Legged Pitbull  and Rude Dog (who loves trash).  Their combined leg total is six :).

The non-profit organization is aimed at providing assistance to struggling dog owners for routine or emergency veterinary care or spay/neuter surgeries.  It is regardless of state.  You can see some of Six Legs’ stories on their Facebook page.  These stories are incredible, so take a look.

I had NO clue how much I would love this bunch.  I also had no clue how cool Fifty the Two Legged Pitbull’s fans are.  The crowd to see him was amazing – and all the ladies love him.  His kerchief explains that quite nicely ;).

Kelly, Heather, & Sebastian are doing something I truly, truly believe in – keeping companion animals in their loving homes with their families.  Sometimes we fall on hard times – and having to give up a pet because we can’t afford their care makes things so much worse.  The whole story behind this amazing organization is here:  Six Legs.

A huge thank you for inviting me to this event!  I hope I can work with this group a lot more in the future :).

    Hannah,
    So happy to see these heartfelt pictures of your time away. Kelly and Fifty/Fifty are so inspirational in their unconditional love for each other. He is so fortunate to have found such a wonderful home after that cruel shooting, and that she works with Integrative Pet Care which provides him such a better quality of life. There Facebook page has so many loving followers. She has done so much to dispel some of the myths about the breed. Six Legs has done so much to enable people to keep their pets despite the economy, the injury, etc. No one enjoys having to part with a pet and give them to a crowded shelter or be put to sleep.

    I have known some pit bulls that were so well trained and loved by their owners. I have also had the experience where my little terrier/cockapoo mix was attacked by a pit bull receiving a deep shoulder wound . It really is all about bad owners and inbreeding, dog fighting rings that give certain breeds a bad name.

    These are the most loving pictures. I do hope you continue to get a chance to work with Six Legs Foundation. They would benefit from your wonderful ability to showcase the best moments between humans and their doggy companions. It amazes me that this non-profit group is able to raise so much money to assist others in need. When one can be a vehicle to generate goodwill, and pay it forward, somehow donations of money and food seem to arrive when needed.
