When a pit bull named Sterling was rescued by his mom, he was only four weeks old. The little puppy had been abused and all he needed was someone to give him the attention and love he deserved. His mom did exactly that, and these days Sterling is a confident, sweet dog who loves his family very much. Bethany Leigh, Sterling’s owner, says he was so small when she adopted him that he had to be bottle fed every few hours. He had huge scars across his legs and chest and with lots of TLC and training, he has grown into a loving, sweet dog who is a valued member of the family.
Leigh has always had a heart for animals, and has spent her life fostering and rescuing animals from terrible situations. Sterling has grown up in that environment and is a great foster brother to all the animals who pass through the family’s home. One of his favorite animals is kittens, however. Whenever a kitten comes into the family home, he instantly bonds with them in the sweetest way. Sterling had his chance to help a kitten recently, when Leigh found a kitten she named Lux in the parking lot of a fast food restaurant. Once the kitten came home, Sterling instantly fell in love. Lux was scared of Sterling at first, but soon the pair bonded and began spending every moment of their day together.
The pair loves to take naps together, snuggle, and even share their toys and play in the backyard together. It was clear that Lux was a great fit for their family and the cat especially loved Leigh’s daughter—who is Sterling’s other best friend. Leigh realized that everyone in the home had bonded with their kitty member of the family and she could not separate them. So, thanks to Sterling’s help Lux the cat is now a member of the family after being adopted by them!
