Lee with Asher House found out about a skinny Pit Bull wasting away in an animal shelter. He knew he could help her and made his way over. The puppy was merely skin and bones! Lee took her from the shelter and brought her to the Asher House sanctuary.


The dog, now named Daisy, was initially too overwhelmed and nervous to meet the entire pack. So Lee decided it was best to introduce her slowly. Lee snuggled Daisy closely after she got out of his car and said, “That’s my baby!” And our hearts melted! He’s an awesome guy.


The rescuer was amazed when Daisy immediately followed him without a leash! She was already devoted to him. What a good girl! Daisy quickly acclimated to her new digs and bonded with the other doggy residents once ready. The pup put on weight quickly too!


Daisy, now double her size, turned into the happiest pup! Had she stayed in the shelter, who knows what would’ve happened to the poor little girl! Lee is amazing! We are so grateful for his big heart. To meet Daisy and see her transformation, check out the video below.
