Maple, the sweetest Pittie, was dumped on a freeway. Justine, her mommy, believes she was used as a bait dog. Justine saw Maple online and submitted an application. She believed Maple was meant to be hers for a very good reason.

Justine’s beloved Pit Bull recently passed away. She had a hole in her heart and space in her home to adopt a new pup to add to her pack. Thankfully her application went through and she drove 8 hours away to meet Maple and her foster mom. When Justine arrived, she knew instantly that Maple belonged with her and Maple felt the same way!

When Maple came home with Justine, she was severely underweight. Justine worked hard to get Maple as healthy as possible… and she now weighs 60 pounds! Maple loves her doggy siblings, especially when they go on adventures together.
