Orion, adopted 9/14/12
October 4, 2013

Orion was our first of many experiences to come with adopting a pit bull. Our family had the privilege of spending 475 days with sweet Orion, aka Rion. From the moment I saw him, nervous as ever in the back of his kennel, I knew he had to come home with me. Although his cancer returned shortly after his adoption, you would have never known he was sick. He fought until the end. He was the happiest dog I have ever known and he will forever live in a corner of my soul. My heart is still so heavy with him gone, but we are so grateful for the snuggles and kisses we got in when we had the chance. As we move forward we know that Rion will guide us in choosing our next rescue pit bulls because of course, that is exactly what he would want.
