Baby Camden lives with a lot of dogs, but the little one has developed a special bond with one pit bull in particular.
If you're reading this then it's probably safe to assume that you're a dog person. For dog people, it's can be hard to fathom that there are others out there who aren't dog people. We see campaigns for certain breeds of dog to be classified as "dangerous dogs" and it just blows our minds.
Speaking of which, whenever the term "dangerous dog" is thrown around, sadly, the breed that almost always tops the list is pit bulls. If you have encountered pit bulls or have had them as pets, you'll know that, when they are part of a loving home and family, they are as far from dangerous as a dog can possibly be. Pit bulls are just as friendly as any other breeds and are equally deserving of a great home and a great life.
The couple in the video below, courtesy of Pittie Nation's Facebook page, has provided us with living proof of that. Briana O'Leary and John Flores had six dogs when they were expecting their first child, many of which were pit bulls. To prepare them for baby Camden's arrival, the parents-to-be played audio of babies crying around the house, and when Camden was born, they slowly introduced him to the pups one by one.
'Aggressive' Pit Bulls LOVE Their Baby Brother
When these pitties were in the shelter, they were labeled "aggressive" and "anxious" — but a couple who's fostered hundreds of dogs took a chance on them. Today on Pittie Nation, watch how the family's six rescue dogs welcomed their (human) baby brother Camden in the sweetest way 🐶🐶🐶🐶🐶🐶❤️👶Posted by Pittie Nation on Wednesday, July 25, 2018
As you can see, Camden and the dogs all get along wonderfully. There's one canine in particular though, that Camden has a special bond with, a small foster pit bull named Wellington. Watching the two of them play together is adorable. Plus, Camden is helping Wellington get healthy. When the pup arrived, he weighed less than half of what he was supposed to. With the right care, love, and attention, at the time that the video was filmed Wellington had already gained ten pounds.
When Briana and John adopted their pit bulls, they were told that the dogs' anxiety and aggression meant that they should not be around children. We hope that the people who told them that get to watch this video. John puts it better than we ever could in the clip by saying, "It's dog first, breed second. And it's human first, race second. No matter what." Words to live by.
