Mid-America Bully Breed Rescue came to the aid of two puppies when they were hit by a car on a busy Kansas City street in 100+ degree heat. Members of the Kansas City Police Department contacted MABBR when they received a call for help.

Witnesses said the pups were being walked by men who fled the scene after the dogs were injured.

Both puppies were taken to the vet and treated. The female, Stella, sustained injuries to her leg and eye. The male, Earl, was not seriously injured. Both pups were transferred to foster homes where they fully recovered and were eventually adopted into new homes.

Starved Pit Bull – Meet Twiggy

Twiggy was found along the highway running through traffic when a good samaritan picked her up. This poor sweetheart was truly skin and bones. We don’t know if her previous owner just seriously neglected her, or if she was on her own for a long period of time before she was found.

She is an outgoing, loving and very friendly dog. She was taken to the vet immediately upon rescue and in addition to being malnourished, she was diagnosed with parasites and treated. Fortunately, she tested negative for heartworms.

Twiggy has a zest for life and is a very deserving little girl. She is currently in a boarding facilty and we would love to see her in a foster home or forever home very soon. She deserves to live the pampered life of a cherished companion!

Update: Twiggy has been adopted! Special thanks to Carol Turner for her assistance with Twiggy, and to Twiggy’s sponsors: Jim and Mary King, Rhonda Cooke, Jennifer Price.
