Sister of Fallen Soldier Seeks Pit Bull Friendly Housing to Keep His Dog

Kay recently lost her brother, an Army paratrooper in the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, the 82nd Airborne Division. In addition to his sister, he left behind a young wife, three small boys, and three dogs. While his widow would of course love to keep the dogs, it has become very difficult for her to manage them and her three boys while adjusting to a new life full of challenges.

Kay has decided to care for and provide a home one of them, his precious baby girl Mavis.  She tells us that Mavis is a wonderful, beautiful show dog that is extremely well behaved, good with children (even small) and other dogs…but she is also a pit bull, so finding housing that will not discriminate against her has been challenging to say the least.

If you know of a kind heart that wouldn’t mind renting space in the DC metro area to Kay and Mavis (even temporarily), please share her story with them. She does not want to lose the opportunity to keep a little piece of her brother and provide Mavis with the home that she knows her brother would want her to have.

About Kay:

Kay is a graphic and web designer and manages a career consulting company.  She’s female, 33, and doesn’t smoke, drink or have parties or nonsense where she lives.  If you do, she doesn’t mind – your place, your rules.  She’s told us that she is open to any size living space, a studio, 1 bedroom, basement, shared house, anything – as long as she is able to keep Mavis, and a piece of her brother.  While she’d love to have a yard or patio for Mavis, she also wouldn’t mind taking her to a nearby park every day.

Mavis will also be taking her AKC Canine Good Citizen test with us on November 8th.

If you can help or know of somewhere Mavis will be welcome, please email Kayleene.
