If there’s one thing Reeva the pit bull is known for, it would be her trademark smile. According to her caretakers over at the shelter, Reeva’s face would break into a squint that it almost seems like a smile. Everyone at the shelter loves Reeva, but they believe she deserves a loving home and family to live with.
Started out a mess
Reeva wasn’t at her best when she first got in the shelter almost a thousand days ago. She had bad skin and hair, and her knee required surgery. She got the care and medical attention at the shelter – from food to toys to training.
“She’s spoiled rotten,” says Nikki Wareham, a veterinary technician at the shelter.
Reeva grew up to be an adorable wrinkly-faced pit bull whose smiles melted the hearts of many. She is gentle and well-mannered, whether there are kids or other animals around.
A family adopted Reeva for only 10 days. They returned her to the shelter because the owners realized they couldn’t afford her specialty diet back then.
And it seemed like Reeva was too content at the shelter than the other dogs. When there are visitors, she’d rather sit or lie on her bed while others jumped excitedly about.
Finally, a family to live with!
The people at the shelter made sure that Reeva’s going to get adopted by loving people so they made her smiling videos viral on the internet. A family took interest and came over to see Reeva in person. They adopted her there and then, on Reeva’s 950th day at the shelter.
Although most people were so happy that Reeva finally gets a family, some couldn’t help but shed tears. But Reeva just broke into her trademark smile while they prepared her adoption papers.
Now Reeva couldn’t help but smile some more.
