From what you think you know about pit bulls, would you ever adopt one?
After volunteering at a shelter, Candice Miller spent lots of time with a pit bull named Kilo. She knew he came from a home where he was forced to live outside, beaten and wasn't fed enough. This left him feeling constantly nervous, so much so that he moved around by crawling on his belly.
After Kilo had been at the shelter for several months without adoption, it decision was made that he would be euthanized. Miller decided to save him.
"The rest was history," Miller told the Huffington Post. "Kilo came into my life at a point where I needed him the most ... We both had been through some bad stuff, but together are absolutely happy and healthy."
Since then, she has taken in a few other shelter dogs, including two other pit bulls.
Miller shares photos and videos on her Instagram of all her pups playing, sleeping and even swimming.
She hopes that people who see her happy dogs will cause them to rethink negative stereotypes associated with pit bulls and shelter dogs.
