Lily is a shining example as to why all pitbulls shouldn't be lumped into one category.
Not all pitbulls are viscious and mean.
By risking her life for her owner, Lily has shown us that pibulls can be just as caring and compasionate as any other breed.

Thats a very brave and loveable animal. Ppl need to get over the name pitbull, and actually get one and see how loveable and respectful tahey are to their owners I love my babies, I have 3. Very amazing dogs if you ask me. And to Lily's owner, you are very blessed to have her in your life.

Lily is a shining example of what Pit-bulls really are. I am so glad that he is so grateful and will look after her, she is the only reason he still has a mother.... wherever she is!

I hope Lily makes a full recovery, it is a shame she had to lose a leg, but it could have been a lot worse.

Noted with thanks Simone.
