Right from the beginning, Gunner, an adopted Pit Bull dog, showed himself to be a great fit with his new family. He sticks his tongue out for a photo, just like his new family.
“It’s funny because we do tongue pics as a joke all the time,” says Antonio Beretini. He is the guy sitting in the driver’s seat in the photo below, next to partner Chad Winningham. “So having Gunner do this as soon as he sat in our car between the kids was just too funny to pass on capturing!”
The adorable photo was taken about a week ago. Gunner had only just been adopted from Red’s Bully Rescue. The group had rescued him from a high-kill facility, right before his euthanasia date.
“On our arrival at the shelter, Gunner was so excited to see us that he pulled us out for a walk,” says Beretini. “Since then he has been giving us kisses and been taking us on regulardaily walks”
Lucky Gunner is now called Dash and he has picked up a host of adorable antics:he loves watching movies with the kids who he gives lots of sloppy kisses. He has also become a persistent morning cuddler.
When he’s tired of cuddles or attacking squeaky toys, he can often be found in front of the mirror, admiring his undeniable cuteness.
“He thinks he is pretty, I guess,” Beretini says. “Dash also farts a lot, but that’s been somewhat controlled with organic food and no corn or starches in his diet.”
Beretini says he absolutely loves the photo of everyone sticking out their tongues for a several reasons. But an important one is: it sends a positive message about Pit Bulls.
It is also “a representation of happiness and rescue of someone who if we haven’t picked him up could have been killed,” he says. “It represents us as a family.”
We hope everyone can learn from the story of this family. Aren’t they sweet?
