A few weeks ago, Kobe was given up by his previous owners to a Maryland shelter. He is about four years old and was received in horrible shape by his foster family. He was treat very poorly in his short four years of life.

His foster dad Sean Stinchcom stated:

“We can only assume he wasn’t provided proper care where he was before coming to the shelter.”

And that’s all about to changed now.

Kobe has been with Sean and his wife, Jade, and their furry crew of two Pits and four cats for the last two weeks. They fostered him through the Baltimore Bully Crew. Sean and Jade have loved were consumed with joy seeing Kobe come out of his shell, playing him with peanut butter, chew toys, and lots and lots of snuggles to “help him realize he will never have to worry about going back to the shelter.”

Due to his heartworm treatments Kobe can’t romp with the other critters much now, but is still enjoying his new loving surroundings.

Sean stated:

“He is a very happy dog and seems to be becoming happier everyday. I would like to think he knows he is safe.”

A dogs expression can mean so many different things. Sometimes a grin means submissiveness or fear. Sometimes dogs learn to flash their pearly whites because they get rewarded for doing it, as if they are saying cheese!

Sean feels pretty confident that Kobe is showing actual, well-deserved and a very big smile which adorably, matches Jade’s.

“He gives that face whenever he sits down with you,” Sean says. “Since he has been getting used to receiving lots of love and food, it seems like he is smiling more often.”

Their first pup, Delilah, was even enlisted to help Sean propose to Jade back in 2013.

In a few monthsmonths, Kobe will go on the market for his permanent home. (Keep watch on Baltimore Bully Crew’s Facebook page for updates — you can put in an adoption application sooner rather than later.)

They have aving been down this road with many times before as foster parents, which ironically are always Pit Bulls, and always white!

Sean and Jade’s dogs Delilah and Piper, with another well-loved foster named Dolly.

There are always tears saying goodbye, but there is always a big smile on their dogs showing the love they experienced while being fostered.
