Greetings Ken Foster and Sula Foundation,
Over the last few years we have read Ken’s book “The dogs who found me” and
Because of the influence you have provided we have successfully adopted a 9-12 month old pit bull mix (pit and mastiff) named Monty from the Southwest Washington Humane Society three weeks ago from the writing of this letter.
We also have a 9 ½ year old Rottweiler, Stacia, that in recent months has become very arthritic and is unable to play at the pace her brain thinks she can. In raising Stacia we have found many people realize these breeds are not “dangerous” but very loving and friendly. We cannot even get close to telling anyone the amount of opinions and mis-perceptions this dog has changed. We thought it would be great if another dog learned from her mannerisms and after careful thought we adopted Monty with the intention to carry on your/her influence and a positive change to these breed of dogs. Each day we continue to make all the efforts we can to follow your lead and tell everyone not to be afraid, but embrace the love these animals give.
Although a couple of our neighbors were leery of the breed, this dog has won over many a heart already and changed a few perceptions. Because of Ken and the Sula foundation we are proud to say, this is not a “bully breed” but a loving, wonderful, sensitive breed.
For your enjoyment we have attached a couple of pictures of Monty and ask that you continue to do your valuable work and positive influence to potential owners all over the US.
Thank you both for all the hard work you and the foundation do, we have been blessed for 9 ½ years and look forward to many, many more.
Andrew, Stephanie and Cameron Bremner
