Pit Bulls Rescued After Three Years Outside

Imagine this harrowing scene: for three long years, you live your life attached to a chain outside. You receive food and water, but very little else. No love or exercise, or really much more than an old, rickety dog house for shelter from the Texas heat. For two pit bulls, this sad scene was their very harsh reality. The two dogs, pit bulls named Milo and Princess, found themselves outside in a yard in Fort Worth, Texas. They were chained to dog houses in their owner’s yard for three very long years.

It is easy to think they did not have much of a life there. Aside from their old dog houses, they really just had each other to keep them company. They were quite sad, both in demeanor and expression to anyone who saw them. That is, until a woman named Judy Obregon, who founded a local rescue organization called The Abandoned Ones (TAO) came on the scene. She arrived in their yard to rescue the pair of dogs and remove them from their nightmare. The dogs, clearly excited, began pulling against their chains to get closer to their rescuer.

However, there was quite a journey before the rescue could take place. Milo and Princess began as part of the TAO’s community outreach program. The group was working with the dogs’ owners to get the dogs spayed, neutered, and potentially off of their chains in the backyard. When Hurricane Harvey arrived, everything changed, however. The team was going to head to Houston for rescue efforts, but needed to take care of Milo and Princess first. The team got lucky and Milo and Princess were surrendered to the group not long after.

It is safe to say the two dogs were very, very happy after their rescue. Tails wagging, tongues licking, the two perked up immediately as they left their old life behind and ventured out into the world again.
