The Richardsons hoped that this treatment would work, but unfortunately it did not. The next day, the brave puppy ceased to exist. “He has been a member of the family. These have left us devastated. We believed the antidote was going to work, ”said Gina, Gary’s wife.

Pit bulls are the most loyal breed of dog I know, and I have had many different animals in my life. If you find an aggressive pit bull, chances are it’s because they haven’t been treated well. If you treat them well, they would give their lives for you and I owe the life of my son, “said the heartbroken man.

However, they also celebrated their courage and loyalty. Without his intervention, the Richardsons would possibly not be mourning the death of their pet, but of their two children. Rest in peace, Zeus.
