Craigslist User Finds Abused Pit Bull, Tells Owner: She's All Mine Now!

Warning: The following story will move you to tears, both of the sad and the happy variety.

Last Friday, a Nashville native came into contact with a pit bull who wandered on to her porch.

Seeing clear signs of abuse, the woman made a posting on Craigslist that addressed the animal's owner and stated simply: "Your pit bull found me. And I'm not giving her back."

Abused Animal

The new owner dubbed her new canine Mama Jade and rebuked Jade's previous master in her Craigslist message:

"With each bite of her they took and each yelp she cried, they'd look at you for reassurance. Because all they wanted to do was please you... Loyalty is in their blood. Violence is not."

The user then said that Jade hasn't lost her spirit or personality ("She'll give you slobbery kisses and nuzzle your face with love"), but that she initially feared she would need to put Jade down.

HOWEVER, the Craigslist post went viral, a Facebook page with over 15,000 Likes has since been created and the owner has been overwhelmed by the support total strangers have shown, emotionally and financially.

"The response ... has restored a lot of my faith in humanity," she writes "Many people and charities have asked if they could donate funds for Mama to get treatment...

"Thanks the overwhelming response I received from posting Mama Jade's story on Craigslist, this girl is getting yet another chance to live a beautiful life. From the bottom of my heart, I can't thank everyone enough for the kind words & incredible support."

AWWWW. Hooray!

Absolutely the most beautiful thing I've heard and I'm so happy there are people in the world like you. People like you give me hope :)

Shannon joy sharp

I was terrified when my brother and then my sister got pit bulls 10 or so years only heard teh bad stories. Then i got to know them.....they are the smartest, most loyal, loving, clever creatures ever!!! biggest danger is being slobbered on while being affectionately kissed, getting thwapped with a happy wagging tail....or maybe they might jump up to literally put their arms around your neck!!! have become a fan and very outspoken about this much maligned breed....God bless you and momma Jade-----you rock!


Thank you for caring shes a very sweet looking dog! If the owner wants her back abuse her like she did the dog tie her from a tree upside down over night and hit her with an ugly stick....not that would make her look good I think it would improve it......Thank you again for being so big hearted and taking he dog into a safe and loving home!
