Bubby the Pit Bull was just a pup when he was used as a bait dog by a dogfighting ring.
By the time he was rescued, he was physically and emotionally traumatized. He was terrified as his emaciated body was punctured and infected all over, writes ilovemydogsomuch
His wounds gave off a rotten stench and he was extremely closed off. These disheartening factors eventually pushed him onto the casualty list.
Bubby was saved from euthanasia at the last moment, but her troubles were far from over. He spent the next 2 months locked in a garage like worthless trash.
Eventually, a woman heard of his fate and adopted him without thinking. Bubby was depressed and confused as he sat in his rescuer’s car, unaware that his life was about to change forever.
Bubby was touched when he first received love and care from his new mom. She gave him enough space to overcome his shyness and fears at his own pace.
Over the months, he impressed everyone by achieving an incredible physical and mental recovery. He grew particularly attached to the woman who rescued him, which eventually manifested in acute separation anxiety (completely understandable given what he’s been through).
Bubby’s owner decided to crate train her to give her a sense of security and stability when she wasn’t around.
It was during this crate training that Bubby recognized a new feeling of comfort in blankets! Every morning he would get out of his crate with his blanket and parade around the house sniffling happily and wagging his tail!
Bubby’s blanket became a security shield for him that assured him that everything was fine. His traumas and nightmares gradually faded, but his sacred “routine de blanquette” remained pretty much intact.
Over time, he developed a similar devotion to his pillows, toys, and just about anything that felt like home!
Bubby received her family’s best gift when they adopted another rescue Pit Bull named Simon to keep her company. They thought Bubby would finally lose her blanket obsession, but that never happened.
While Simon deeply adored and admired Bubby, it was only a matter of time before he copied his uninhibited brother’s love! Oh! Pit Bulls are such adorable lovers!
