Right from the start it was clear that Olive was a lover not a fighter. “When we visited her in the shelter,” says her new “mom,” Brandy Watson, “she didn’t bark wildly for our attention, instead she just walked up and kind of leaned into my husband’s hand.”

That was enough to convince the Watsons, who live in Jamestown, N.D., that seven-month-old Pit Bull-mix Olive would fit right into their family of six children. Olive was listed on Petfinder by the James River Humane Society, also in Jamestown.

“So many people are afraid of Pit Bulls,” Brandy says, “but like any dog, so much of it has to do with how you raise them.”

Big though she is, Olive is afraid of some things: brooms, vacuum cleaners and the family’s big tomcat, to name three. But as the photo shows, she likes to snuggle with the kitten.

Sometimes Olive shows some attitude, according to Brandy. “If you tell her something she doesn’t like, she will sit with her back turned to you, huff, and give you dirty looks over her shoulder.” But soon enough, the peaceable kingdom Olive knows as home has returned.
