Khalessi, A Story Of Love And Support

Khalessi rescued APBT 2

“She loves people, all people. She just wants attention and love.”

Some people show disgust, or curiosity, or pity, or admiration. Others just stare.

Stephanie Paquin likes it best when folks just come up and ask why it is that Khalessi the pit bull has her unusual smile.

“I would rather people ask what happened and give me the chance to explain,” Paquin says.

“She needed help,” Paquin says.

Khalessi came home with Paquin and her husband on Saturday. The dog’s tail has barely stopped wagging since.

“Khalessi is sweet, loving and amazing. She loves people, all people. She just wants attention and love,” says Paquin.

Her future includes reconstructive surgery, and various other unpleasant — and expensive — but necessary medical procedures. And after that, Khalessi will be made available for adoption.

But now, Khalessi is just enjoying her safe new circumstances.

She likes snoring away in a soft dog bed and palling around with Paquin’s other dogs. On a trip to the store, Khalessi rode around in the cart, and picked out a toy (her preference: a long-legged stuffed cow). At a local restaurant, she’s greeting admirers with kisses.

Khalessi’s tail is constantly whipping back and forth, a million beats a minute.

While they’re out, Paquin hopes that people will stop and ask how this good dog got to looking the way she does.

Then she’ll tell Khalessi’s story. Make the world understand just how evil humans can be toward animals. Who, in return, give us the face of forgiveness.

“A person did this to her and she does not let it affect her outlook on people,” Paquin says. “This experience has changed her appearance but not her heart.”

You can follow Khalessi’s progress on the Passion 4 Pits Facebook page. The group is holding an online fundraiser to help pay for Khalessi’s treatment.
