Geisha , I saved her life and she saved my life.
Almost 14 years ago I walked into the Los Angeles City Shelter on Lacy Street to rescue a pit bull, my first one out of prison. As I walked down the hallways I felt like I was in Folsom Prison, but for dogs.
I came to one dog run and saw this dog who was going to be put down that day if no one would take her. She was beautiful and demanded attention. I filled out the paperwork and paid the fees. I was told to come back in 5-6 hours to pick her up after she was fixed.
I came back and the supervisor told me to come back the next day to pick up another dog. They forgot to spay with dog and was basically going to kill her. I had a fit and the supervisor when to call the police when I friend from high school was working there now, told me how to use the side gate to get out.
So I took this dog and saved her life, not knowing that she was going to save my life. After going through what I went to get her, I started to get involved in Pit Bull Rescue and Breed awareness. Of course I couldn’t get one, then came Mussolini, Bebi and many more. These dogs gave me a reason to do good for someone else and keep me out of trouble and out of jail.
If it wasn’t for Geisha I may have been back in prison
If it wasn’t for Geisha there would be no Shorty’s Rescue
If it wasn’t for Geisha there would of never been Pit Boss
If it wasn’t for Geisha, a lot more pit bulls would never be saved
I just want to thank her for saving my life. For giving me a purpose in life. She was always my favorite, sorry Hercules, you are too. I don’t know how I am going to go back to my house in Mexico and not see her there. Geisha, thank you, I love you, and you will be missed.
