    I was contacted by my neighbor's son-in-law last night with terrible news.
    My neighbor had been horseback riding and some how was crushed by her horse.
    They do not know what happened. she was found by her husband and is now in a coma with a servere head injury and multiple trama to her body. The prognosis is not good.
    She is like so many of us.....lots of animals.
    She recently took in a pit bull terrier from someone who had to move but could not take the dog with her. The family thinks the dog is about 6-7 years old with a good temperment.
    The Rottie is 1-2 and is very fearful. My neighbor was working with him, the family thinks he was present during the accident and it took them three days to get him in the horse stall were he is staying for now. They need new homes ASAP.
    I hope to have pictures today.
    Please spread the word to anyone you think might could help.
    The family is taking care of all her many animals.....they need our help.
    Thanks,
    Tammie

    Go to petfinder.com and search for a local pure bred rescue. There are a couple in N GA that take fighting breeds.
