Jessica Miller first met Grandma Dot, an old and deaf pit bull, at the LifeLine Animal Project in Georgia. During their first meeting, Jessica quickly built a good rapport with the pooch. The pooch is already old and is expected to spend her remaining days at the shelter.
When Jessica heard of this, the woman decided to foster Grandma Dot. According to Jessica, she could not bear seeing the pooch spending her remaining days inside the animal shelter. This is why she decided to take her into her home and give her a good life.
Jessica also shared that it was the dog’s story that pierced her heart. According to the animal shelter’s volunteers, Grandma Dot arrived at the shelter in bad shape. For one, the pooch had a heavy chain padlocked to her neck, which prevented her from moving. This also resulted in the dog’s being nearly deaf.
The volunteers tried to win the heart of Grandma Dot, and soon enough, the pooch started trusting humans again. Although the pooch had a bad past, Jessica said it is still not too late to give Grandma Dot good memories about humans.
While it is a difficult job, Jessica is willing to do it wholeheartedly. This is why when she decided to foster the pooch, she already planned how to make the dog’s life joyful. It was in 2017 that Jessica brought the pooch to her home.
But instead of changing the life of the dog, it was her life that the dog transformed, Jessica shared. For one, the dog taught her how to be patient. Since the dog is deaf, there is a communication barrier between the two. The two, however, were able to overcome this barrier. They then became inseparable. From time to time, Jessica posts photos and videos of Grandma Dot enjoying her new life under Jessica’s tutelage.
Grandma Dot is a deaf, high heartworm positive, dog reactive pitty with terminal lymphoma. But thanks to supporters like you, Grandma Dot is also a happy, spoiled and loved family pet. Thanks to you, Grandma Dot is home <3All they need is a chance >>> LifeLineAnimal.org/donate
