Katrina-rescued Malibu shows off pit bulls’ good side as Abigail and Knight look for forever homes

As this video shows, 5-year-old Malibu, who was rescued during Hurricane Katrina and subsequently adopted through the Animal Rescue League of Boston is a great ambassador for the pit bull breed. To quote her owner, “She has become the best dog I have had the privilege of knowing.” She was also featured in the book Dirty Bow Wow a tribute to dogs and the objects of their affections written by Cheryl and Jeffrey Katz with photography by Hornick/Rivlin.

Meanwhile, two other pit bull types at the Brewster Animal Care and Adoption Center, 2-year-old Abigail and 1-year-old Knight, are also looking for a forever home.

Abigail has been at the shelter since July 17 after being found as a stray in a different part of the state. According to the staff who have interacted with her, she’s a sweet girl and gets along with everyone she meets. She knows a few commands and is a people pleaser. She loves to go for walks and is fairly good on a leash. She gets along with some dogs (but “prefers dogs that aren’t in her face”) and seems to be okay with cats. Abigail also seems to get along with kids, but since her past history is unknown and she is a large dog, the staff are looking for a home without very young kids (ages 8-10 and up would be good). Her Shelter ID number is A222234

Knight has been at the shelter since September 10. According to the staff he’s a “knight in shining armor…” House trained and clean, he is very obedient and knows his commands. And the staff notes, “He is so focused and food-motivated he learns things quickly, so training is a breeze!” His Shelter ID number is A223408.
