Thumbs up Pit Bull parents and seven pups living on golf course in LA are saved by Karma Rescue

This is an article about a family of pit bulls, a male and a female (mom and dad) and their 7 puppies that lived on a golf course. It is unknown how long they have been feral but one thing is certain: these dogs are true breed ambassadors. Not even a low growl could be heard when Karma Rescue did their search and rescue mission. Awesome story. Awesome dogs. The best part is that all dogs rescued are adoptable, which is so awesome considering they have lived without human interaction for a long time.

Pit Bull parents and seven pups living on golf course in LA are saved by Karma Rescue--VIDEO
Golf is a popular pastime, even with our four-legged friends.
It seems that for more than a year, an entire family of Pit Bull terriers has been living in the lush surroundings of a golf course near South Central Los Angeles. Mom, dad and seven puppies. One might think this story would follow the lines of other Pit Bull-themed media reports—dogs go on rampage, dogs snarl at golfer, dogs chase golf carts down the green.

Nope. Not here. Not at all. In fact, the case of the Golf Course Family is proof that Pits, for as bad a rap as they often get, are very, very often kind, forgiving, compassionate creatures so ready to be loved. Doubt it? Check out the videos below.

Check out this awesome video
This family of Pits lived quietly on the golf course, hiding most of the time and rummaging through trash. The staff at the course would provide food from time to time, and the golfers kept quiet about the tenants. No one wanted the dogs hauled away by animal control, especially after the babies were discovered.

That's when Karma Rescue in Los Angeles stepped in. A few weeks ago, the group got a call alerting volunteers to the dogs' existence, and a plea for help was issued. Since the pups were basically feral (they'd never been touched by or positively exposed to humans before), it was imperative they were caught as soon as possible so they could have a great chance at a normal life.

The area the dogs called home was extremely dense, almost wooded. Many nooks and crannies existed for the dogs to hide. But Leslie and others at Karma persisted, traipsing through the brush and trees in search of the dogs.
"I caught the first one, Kathy, because I stumbled on the parents and puppies sleeping in the sun, and I managed to grab her before the rest disappeared into the woods."

The first thing Leslie noticed was how gorgeous the puppy was. The second? She was blind in one eye. Quickly after Kathy was safe, Leslie found another pup, Healthcliff.

"They both screamed like banshees when they were caught," he said.

But quickly, the pair settled and calmed. The next day, more volunteers congregated at the course. The doggie parents—a small brown and white Pit mix and a blue/brindle Pit mix—ran from rescuers, and the search-and-rescue mission became more difficult. But after a few hours of digging through the brush, the volunteers spotted more puppies hiding under a log. Nike, Pixie, Tess and Brandon came out screaming, but safe.

On Day 3 of the mission, Leslie ventured out to the course again and got the last pup, Twitch, as he sunbathed. All pups went into foster care at Leslie's house. Then, things slowed down. Karma rescuers didn't want to get the parents if there were still pups out there. So observation began. Once it was determined all pups had been rescued, humane traps were set up for the parents. First in, the dad. Chester, followed the next day by mom Birdie, the petite brown Pit. (See the video below for the heartbreaking separation of the two, and then the amazing reunion.)

Heartbreaking separation with happy ending


"The parents are actually great," said Leslie. "[Chester] was very hungry, but he didn't try to bite or escape. I took him home and gave him a bath, and he has been lying on my couch ever since. He seems like a very mellow, laid-back dude"

Birdie, while more nervous than Chester, allowed Leslie to put a leash on her and carry her to his car. Not a single problem. Once home, she completely blossomed.

"She was reunited with Chester, although I'm keeping them separate for now because neither of them is fixed," Leslie said . "She is nervous, but extremely friendly, and constantly wants to get in my lap. I think both parents are very adoptable."

Although they've both had tough lives, Leslie says the dogs are very resilient and really like being around people. In fact, they readily accepted handling and seemed to immediately crave affection from humans. Who knows when—if ever—these dogs experienced kindness at the hands of people? But despite being scared, inexperienced and unsure, they didn't bark, raise a lip or growl at the Karma rescuers. In the video, the bathtub scenes are heartbreakingly sweet.

Karma Rescue is hard at work finding funding to help not only with Kathy's surgery, but with Chester's as well. He has an eye condition where his eyelashes and lids are basically inside-out. It can be fixed, but it will require surgery. Also, all the dogs need to be vaccinated and sterilized, and Chester and Birdie need funding for boarding costs until they find forever homes. A target of $5,000 is sought, and more than $1,500 has so far been received.

What a great story! Thank you Lauren. They are both so healthy looking. Makes me wonder what was in that trash. I was expecting them to be skinny, especially Birdie. Love truly does conquer all.

It makes you wonder about all the "pit bull" (and I put that in quotations because most are not true pit bulls and some aren't even a pit bull at all) attacks by dogs that are roaming free because they have gotten loose from their owner. These dogs supposedly had never had human interaction yet they were sound dogs; pits that attack have usually had some form of human interaction thus making them HA and unsound.

Kangol always gets either excited or concerned when he hears other dogs on the computer. He is usually posted up right next to me watching the screen and his facial expressions are hysterical when he sees/hears another dog on the laptop.

This was a great story; I am particularly amazed with their reactions toward humans considering they were feral.
