“As soon as she saw me, her tail started going — she just wanted love.”
Jami Lassell received a call from her sister-in-law on October 8th with some devastating news.
They came upon a dog confined in the attic while cleaning out a house in Carbon County, Pennsylvania, and didn’t know what to do.
“I told her, ‘I’ll be there in 10 minutes and pick her up.’ ‘We’re just warning you, she’s completely skin and bones,’ they say. “I’m not sure when she was last fed anything,” Lassell told The Dodo.
It was impossible to say how long Remi, a young pit bull, had been stuck in the attic. In an attempt to liberate herself, she chewed through the walls and door, leaving the room strewn with dung and fleas.
Lassell was taken aback by the warm welcome she received when she eventually met the abandoned dog. Lassell described her as “the most loving dog I’ve ever met.” “As soon as she spotted me, her tail began to wag – all she needed was love.”
Lassell intended to foster Remi until she was healthy enough to be adopted, but that plan changed the instant Remi stepped into his home.
“When she arrived home with me, I thought to myself, ‘I can’t give her up,'” Lassell recalled.
Lassell took Remi to the doctor after numerous flea washes and a few decent meals, where she learned that one of the dog’s legs was damaged and would require surgery. Despite the agony Remi has undergone, she is full of love for all living creatures she encounters.
Lassell described her as a “lovebug.” “Her tail wags and her ears perk up whenever she meets someone.”
When it comes to Lassell’s four young children, Remi has boundless patience. Lassell stated, “She’s even great with kids than she is with other animals.” “We have four kids, and she lets them pull on her and pet her.” She’ll just let a kid do anything they want.”
Remi has built an unshakable bond with her 9-month-old pittie brother after only a few weeks in her new home. “They’re fantastic together,” Lassell said. “They’re best friends who do everything together,” says the narrator. We go for walks all the time, and they sleep in the same bed with me at night.”
Remi has entirely evolved into the joyful, healthy puppy she was always supposed to be thanks to Lassell. Lassell, for one, is overjoyed by the unexpected addition to her family.
“Things are quite crazy right now,” Lassell remarked, “but the house just seems to be complete now.” “We have two cats and two dogs, and she just finished everything for us.” “She’s my little babe,” says the narrator.
