Scarlett was a Pit Bull who lived in an animal shelter in a cage. She shivered all the time, emitted a foul odor from her body, and had a runny nose. Audra Spurio arrived at the shelter one day with her daughter Gigi, nicknamed G. She was looking for a canine companion for her daughter.
Scarlett’s skin was inflamed from mange, and her infected swollen feet were infected with staph. The dying Pit Bull used to be left alone in her cage. “Mommy, that one,” Gigi said, pointing to the Pit Bull.
The shelter had not named the poor dog. Audra chose the name Scarlett. Gigi desired to devote her entire time to Scarlett at the animal shelter. She requested that her mother let the dog out because she required assistance. Scarlett panicked and refused to walk when they tried to take her out.
Gigi took the leash and was very patient with the dog. The little girl and the Pit Bull developed an unbreakable bond. The dog would not let Gigi go out of her sight. The two would explore the garden together and enter the dog house together.
Gigi would wipe Scarlett’s goopy eyes and runny nose with her dress. She repeatedly looked at Audra and said that the dog was sick and needed help. The little girl would also give Scarlett hugs, kisses, and belly rubs.
The innocent girl could have cared less about how bad the dog smelled. The poor dog started to shake uncontrollably when they put Scarlett back inside her cage. However, Gigi refused to leave by her side. She kept telling her mom that the dog was sick and needed help. Finally, after Gigi’s repeated attempts, Audra decided to adopt Scarlett.
Once the Pit Bull reached home, she started to feel much better. However, she would still never let Gigi go out of her sight. Instead, they would play with balloons, sit in the back seat of the car, and share lollipops.
