Pit Bull breeds are extremely people-oriented and when raised with the proper training and socialization, they are loving and gentle, especially with children. They often make lousy guard dogs because of their tail-wagging eagerness to greet the person at the door. They are devoted to their family and will, if necessary, defend them to the death.

In his 1999 book, "The Essential Pit Bull Terrier", K9 and breed expert Ian Dunbar wrote: “Today, a properly bred Pit Bull is so exuberantly happy upon meeting her owner’s friends (or even friendly strangers) that new owners sometimes worry that their dog is too sweet and fun-loving to protect their home and family. A multitalented companion, the well-trained Pit Bull is suited for a variety of exciting activities. He excels at obedience, agility and weight pulling competitions, events, which showcase intelligence, training ability and strength. In addition, the Pit Bull’s pleasant nature makes him an ideal candidate for therapy work." with people.”

Our Happy Tails blog today is dedicated to Lilah, now known as Lihla.

❤️We are also celebrating Lihla today because this week is Deaf Dog Awareness Week❤️

🐾In 2018, Lihla was found as a stray dog and ended up in the dog shelter, after failed forever family tries, Lihla ended up being surrendered to Guardians for the Animals of Ohio rescue. Lihla blossomed into the sweetest, cuddly, snorting girl who enjoyed being with people she loved. Lihla was fostered with the Guardian’s rescue until 2020, when she was taken in by, Sophie’s Foundation-Companions For Veterans.

🐾 Sophie’s Foundation brings veterans and rescue dogs together to fulfill a life of happiness & contentment.

By joining the veterans and dogs, Sophie’s Foundation helps build a trusting and lasting relationship that benefits the quality of life for both.

🐾Guardians for the Animals of Ohio is proud to say that Lihla was accepted into Sophie’s Foundations as their very first deaf dog. Lihla is now in her forever home, with a family that is trained in hand-signal training.

❤️We are so happy and proud of Lihla and we know she is going to bring so much joy to her forever family❤️

If you have not had the pleasure of knowing Pam Price, you are missing out on a truly inspiring woman. Pam started The Guardians for the Animals of Ohio(GFTAO) rescue in 2018. Pam devotes tirelessly (many times without sleep) her life to saving dogs, no matter the cost to herself.

Pam is not only a selfless devoted rescue director she is a distinguished Fire Lieutenant for the Madison Township Fire Department. For instance, in 2015, Fire Lt. Pamela and Firefighter Jessica Borden received a top honor - the Medal of Valor - for walking down a still-burning home to help with other firefighters to rescue an unconscious man from his burning home to safety.

There are hardly enough words to describe Pam and the impact she has had on so many people and dogs lives. In the video below you will see only a few quotes from advocates that work with Pam that describes her as the true hero she is.

Pam~ from all of your friends/family both human and four-legged, we say thank you ❤️
