A wonderful, sweetheart of a pitbull named Jodi, survived a terrible fire this weekend. Jodi's person is a young man named Nathan. Nathan and his family lost their home this holiday to the fire. The family and their beloved pets survived by fleeing the flames in the middle of the night but now, Nathan is seeking a temporary foster situation for his dog, Jodi the pit bull for the next three to four weeks, until he can get his living situation straightened out. He would love it if someone in Gulfport could help him with this. He'd like to be able to visit frequently and a foster situation in Gulfport would make that possible. He also said that he could pay for the food and any vet care should the need arise. He loves his dog very much and doesn't wish to loose him.
As for Jodi, he showed up on my porch the morning after the fire, cold, frightened and hungry. I coaxed him in with peanut butter. While timid at first, he quickly regained his confidence, once he felt safe. I fell in love with this puppy. He was a gentle giant. He kept burying his face in my chest and leaning against me. He likes giving puppy kisses. He's calm and doesn't jump up or pull at the lead when walking and still squats like the baby he is. He is accustomed to cats and doesn't bother them. He didn't bark. He didn't have any issues when I reached to move the food bowl while he was eating and he had no accidents in the house. He is still so young that he still squats like the baby he is. Mostly, he stayed on the makeshift bed we made for him looking out the glass door. He's just a great big love puppy.
Nathan Brumer's phone number is 727-804-7406. He asks anyone who can help or direct him to someone who can, to please call. What a wonderful gift to give for Christmas to this family who has suffered a great loss. It's the season of giving, so please call Nathan if you can help or if you know someone who can.
