When Rebecca Corry lost her dog, she decided to foster a new one thinking that it would help her overcome her grief. Rebecca had no idea that she was about to meet someone that will completely change her entire view about life. She found her real angel.
Rebecca lost her dog from kidney failure. After three months, she decided to foster a dog just for a week or so. But then, she completely fell in love with her foster dog, Angel.
Angel was a very loving pit bull. In just a few weeks, she made a great connection with Rebecca. She helped her regain her happiness by just being around. She’s very different from other dogs, and her mom couldn’t let her go.
Angel was a very weird dog. Unlike other energetic pitties, Angel didn’t like playing fetch or butt sniffing. She’s a very refined dog that it seemed like she came from a royal family.
She preferred comfy beds and airplane rides over chasing silly things. She didn’t have any sense of humor, but she’s never boring. She knew how to amaze people in her own unique way. She always leaves everyone in awe!
Angel changed the way people see pit bulls. She can immediately change their wrong judgment about pit bulls within two seconds. That’s how adorable and sociable she was.
Because of Angel, Rebecca started a nonprofit organization that aims to help more dogs like her. She began to put up events all over the country to encourage people to save more pit bulls and eliminate discrimination. She was able to organize the very first 1 Million Pibble March in Washington D.C.
More than 5000 people joined the March to celebrate the true nature of inherently good dogs like Angel. She was so overwhelmed with the people’s participation. She was more than thankful for everyone who joined the march.
Sadly, after eight years, Angel died from cancer. Rebecca knows that she will never have that kind of bond again in her entire life. But she used her grief in a positive way. She continued her fight for pit bulls and adopted two more pitties. Because of Angel, Rebecca is now living her purpose.
