Stinger the pit bull has seen some very tough times. He was attacked by a swarm of bees, and had a severe reaction. So his owners simply abandoned him at the vet.

Luckily, Carri Shipaila, founder of LuvnPupz rescue, saw the beauty in Stinger and worked to get him the medical care he needed and find someone to adopt him. It turned out that, beyond the bee stings, Stinger needed medical attention for other maladies, too.

The story has a happy ending: Stinger now has a forever home, and is living the good life he deserves. Thank you Carri, and Stinger’s new family, for believing in this beautiful dog.
