In the words of April’s owner, this is April’s story:

April came to me about four years ago as a rescue dog. She is an English Staffordshire Terrier, I think she is about five years old. We decided to have her join our family officially on the 1st of April – our own ‘April fool’. She was found abandoned in an industrial site and was extremely persistent in her quest to be taken home as she sat with her rescuer all day while he worked all the while with her little paw on his back.

It was evident that she had had some puppies herself and was very timid – especially around men. With lot’s of TLC and good nourishing food and a fearless leader she could look up too (her big sister Jess – a fellow Pitbull who is now chasing rainbows on the other side) there was no stopping her rehabilitation. She is the most sweetest, cuddly and affectionate little girl and those chocolate drop eyes have a way of placing a permanent stamp on everyones heart.

April is a darling little girl, such a sweet face and so cuddly and affectionate, even when she didn’t really know me!

Doesn’t she have the coolest ears? One black, and one spotty.

Those eyes definitely melt your heart.

Of course I couldn’t resist some delightful head wrinkles.

But it was gorgeous spotty pink and white belly that got me every time. All recovered now from the litters she had, she just loves to show it off.
