#FureverFriday: Rollins and his adoption story

Rollins 1 new

It’s ‪#‎FureverFriday so King gets a toy break and I – a RESCUED #dog – get to tell my story: My name is Rollins (@rollinsthepit), and I’m a 4 year old #pitbull. I’m named after #HenryRollins, one of Dad’s favorite musicians/authors. He’s a badass like me, for sure! One day in #Atlanta, Georgia – back when I was little and skinny – I crawled under a semi-truck that was making a delivery because I was alone and scared. Fortunately, my Dad saw me and pulled me out. He gave me some water and tied me up for a few minutes so he could think. (He tells me now he did not want a dog, but I knew I had him the moment he looked in my eyes.) He took me home (he’s such a good guy when it comes to rescuing dogs and always takes them to shelters when he finds strays), fed me in the garage, and gave me a bath because I was covered in ticks. The next day he took me to the vet to see if I was chipped and listed me as “Found Dog” – he kept thinking we weren’t meant to be together! But FINALLY, after a few days (and once I took down the FOUND DOG signs all over the neighbor and internet), he realized I wasn’t going anywhere and decided to keep me. We have a crazy bond – I am his, and he is mine – and we do everything together. We love hiking, playing ball, working on motorcycles, and watching movies. I also love snuggling so tell all the ladies! Dad says I have taught him so much – like the importance of patience, understanding, and unconditional love – but he has taught me a lot, too. I am so grateful he’s my Pop and best friend! I already have a #furever home, but if you are interested in ‪#‎adopting any of our friends you met this week, get at me, dawg! Comment or DM me here or tweet my King’s mama @kelsey_cruz. There are so many ‪#‎dogs in need of a home, and we would jump (literally) at the chance to connect you to them. Every Friday, King drops the mic for an adopted friend of his to share his/her story. If you want to share yours, contact him. And remember, #KING is #wheredogsrule.
