I got my Pit bull/Doberman mix from a very abusive home. He was beaten, starved, left on a choker chain, and put in a shock collar just because he was a bit vocal. When I finally did get him it took three baths just to get the dirt out of his fur and then we realized he was blind. After all of that one would think he would have turned out vicious or mean but instead he is the most loveable and faithful companion a girl could ever ask for. He's goofy as all get out and I love him with all my heart and I am blessed to have been able to rescue him. He may be blind but my baby is worth his weight in gold.
