Pit bulls are complete love bugs, but sadly many are ᴇᴜᴛʜᴀɴɪᴢᴇᴅ in ʜɪɢʜ-ᴋɪʟʟ sʜᴇʟᴛᴇʀs because of their breed. Mario Rodriguez was making a ᴅᴇʟɪᴠᴇʀʏ in Cᴀʟɪꜰᴏʀɴɪᴀ when he received a link from his wife about a Pit bull named Hickory that was about to be ᴇᴜᴛʜᴀɴɪᴢᴇᴅ. The moment he saw the dog’s face he was in love. Hickory reminded him so much of his beloved Pit bull, King, that just ᴘᴀssᴇᴅ ᴀᴡᴀʏ.
Mario developed a close relationship with pit bulls as a child and wasn’t prepared to deny the lovely Hickory the chance to enjoy his life. He said: “My family raised this breed collectively. I also brought up my own kids with these animals. They show a lot of affection.” It was only a matter of time before it was too late to acquire this lovely dog because Mario was working in Cᴀʟɪꜰᴏʀɴɪᴀ. Mario made the ʀɪsᴋʏ decision to phone a few people at the office. Without stopping, the drive from Cᴀʟɪꜰᴏʀɴɪᴀ to Nᴇᴡ Yᴏʀᴋ can take close to two days.
It’s a good thing they were able to plan the truck route to get it to Nᴇᴡ Yᴏʀᴋ. As soon as he started driving, he called the shelter repeatedly to make sure Hickory wasn’t being ᴋɪʟʟᴇᴅ. Mario said: “I got in touch with the shelter every day. On the third day, they even knew my phone number. They replied, “Yes, Mario.” It is nonetheless there. It is nonetheless there.”
Mario sped up his driving, eager to see the newest member of his family. Hickory’s excitement and obvious comprehension that Mario had come to make him immensely happy were the two things that were the most “surprising” of all. He said: “He began wagging his tail ᴡɪʟᴅʟʏ when I told him we were going, and he wouldn’t stop jumping on me and kissing me. Hickory made friends with his two new pit bull brothers right away after getting home. But he wouldn’t let Mario go when he learned he had to go back to work. Hickory would become Mario’s new co-pilot, which was the family’s ideal solution.
He is now her dream coworker, and she is content as she ventures into uncharted territory. He said: “We frequently stop at parks and farms. He’s yelled at cows and encountered horses. She is enjoying herself immensely.” Hickory has a bed of his own so he may sleep inside the truck at night. Hickory and Mario were made for one another. We wish you many more memorable moments as a couple.
