A Pitbull’s Tragic Tale: Dog Shot and Loses Both Right Limbs – A Reminder of the Power of Love


A Pitbull’s Tragic Tale: Dog Shot and Loses Both Right Limbs – A Reminder of the Power of Love

Fifty the Pit Bull was born to help others. His mother was pregnant when she was rescued by a kind family. Fifty was eventually adopted by the family from among his littermates.

The playful dog was living the good life with his humans and another doggie sister, Izzy, when the unthinkable occurred.

A patrolling officer became alarmed when he saw Fifty and shot him in both of his right limbs. Fifty was a gentle and kind dog, so this was a classic case of Pit Bull discrimination.

However, this tragic event forever altered his life, and the poor dog had both of his right legs amputated as a result of gunshot wounds.

Fifty was just learning to balance on his two remaining legs when his life was once again turned upside down. This time, Fifty and Izzy’s owners were forced to surrender them to the shelter after losing their home due to the recession. After losing the only constant in his life, Fifty was back to square one.

During this dark and uncertain period in his life, Fifty discovered his true spark. He refused to be a victim of his circumstances and resolved to work his way back up.

He would initially stand with the assistance of walls, only to falter time and again. He was soon able to walk and run normally again thanks to his unwavering dedication and perseverance!

After 9 months of rebuilding himself at the shelter, Fifty finally found his cherished forever home.

He instantly fell in love with his new humans and siblings and vowed to be a good boy to them every day. He settled into his new life, which included many exciting adventures and cuddle sessions.

Fifty’s new parents frequently foster dogs in need, so the big boy has jumped at the chance to be the best foster brother to other unfortunate animals like himself.

Fifty is an incredible survivor who stands tall despite his disability and the many curveballs life has thrown at him.

Let us celebrate the story of this underdog and demonstrate that Pit Bulls are much more than a “hated breed.”

Watch the video below to see how Fifty miraculously managed to thrive again on two left legs.
