While we may not always understand our dogs, they always seem to have our best interests at heart. That was the case for Bri’s rescue Pit Bull, Mya, who got into the habit of bringing her mom items from around the house.
Bri found Mya at a shelter when the Pit Bull was nine months old. When she first arrived at Bri’s home, Mya was underweight, and Bri struggled to get her new rescue dog to eat.
As a last resort, Bri swapped Mya’s diet to raw foods. Fortunately, that seemed to do the trick for the pup. After Bri swapped out her food, Mya went from being disinterested to being obsessed with mealtime.
Mya showed her interest by grabbing her food bowl and bringing it to her mom. “Mya grabs her food bowl probably four or five times a day,” said Bri. “She’ll actually yell at me with the bowl in her mouth.”
Carrying her bowl was not the only way Mya showed her excitement. “She is just a ball of wiggles. She just looks like a little dancer,” said Bri. “Sometimes it’s more of a shimmy.”
Mya started grabbing items for her mom when Bri and her partner started remodeling their house. But Mya’s definition of “helping” was different from that of most people. “It makes work more interesting,” said Bri.
While her dog might not be the most helpful, Bri could not love Mia more. “It just warms my heart so much to see how happy she is now, how full of life she is now and how hungry she is now,” said Bri.
