Roo (the tri-pawd)
Kristin has been volunteering within the animal rescue community since 2005. Kristin's eyes were opened to the world of bully rescue after moving to San Diego in 2008 and rescuing her first pit bull named Pretty. After treating Pretty for severe neglect and abuse, Kristin officially became a foster failure and her love affair with the bully breeds began.
Kristin dedicates a majority of her free time advocating for homeless dogs, keeping a busy schedule volunteering and coming up
with creative fundraising ideas for local rescue groups. Kristin's two pit bull mixes, Pretty the Elderbull and Lily the gorgeous and goofy Boxer/Am Staff mix, earned their AKC Canine Good Citizenship certifications in August 2015. In addition to the 'Biggies', Kristin has adopted 'Littles' in the house including Roo her tripawd Chihuahua (also known as the family "pocket pittie") and most recently her forever foster Daphne, a 15 year old geriatric Chihuahua rescued through a local senior rescue group. Her dogs' Facebook page Unlikely Trio advocates for Pit Bulls, Chihuahuas, deaf dogs, senior dogs, canine cancer survivors and dogs with special needs.
In addition to being a Canine Ambassador with the San Diego Humane Society, Lily joins her sister Pretty as "Monsters" in the National I'm Not a Monster Campaign, and thrive to educate people in the community as local Pit Bull ambassadors. Together they strive every day to help build a positive image for bully breeds everywhere.
