InterviewWith... Hi! My dog’s name is Maila (pronounced My-Luh), and she is a 4 year old rescue American Staffordshire Terrier, also known as a pit bull. How did you come to own her? I rescued her in late 2013 from a high kill shelter in the northern Los Angeles area. It was the same year my mother had passed away and I was feeling like I had a really huge hole in my life. I was in a position with my home and work life where, should I get a dog, I had a friend and somewhere for her to stay while I was away for work. That was a big factor into why I waited until I did to adopt. When I went into this shelter initially, it was to see another dog but we just didn’t seem to click. I did, however, see Maila and she seemed to be quite peaceful despite her chaotic shelter environment. Photo Credit: Jeremy Saffer ClickHere ToRead TheRestOf ThisArticle
