To Melvin's delight, he learned he has siblings, Tibbs and Luna, who are pit bulls, too. But his new home didn't come without tragedy.

One of Patrica's beloved pups passed away. After she took some time to grieve the loss of that special furry family member, she knew she still had love to give. So she began looking at shelters but not just for any kind of breed. She was looking for a pit bull.

Patricia is passionate about pit bulls. She says they get a bad rap and she's worked hard to change that. This loving and loyal breed has a bad reputation for being aggressive and violent but they aren't.

Because they tend to have more energy and higher intelligence, these dogs need more human attention and interaction. Sara Taylor, the director of the shelter said Melvin "didn't really need behavioral modification... He just needed some basic training."

So when Patricia began the adoption process for a new pit bull, she learned about Melvin's plight.

After she learned he had been there for nearly two years after seemingly getting lost on the streets, her heart broke for the poor guy. She adopted him sight unseen!
