Debbie and Doug Gamble of Edinburg, Pa., adopted Shania in March 2007. She is a 3-year-old Pit Bull mix. They got her when she was 8 weeks old from the Westmoreland County Humane Society in Greensburg, Pa. Debbie says: "She was the first pick from a litter of 13. She is the most wonderful, loving, pleasant dog you could ever imagine, and we love her so much. Before she was a year old, she had to have surgery on one knee, then the other 7 months later for luxating patella, which she had done at Town & Country in Warren by Dr. Moxley. What a great doctor and great place to take your best friends. She is running and playing like the rest of my dogs now, thanks to them. Dr. Moxley says she ought to be the poster child for her breed, and we agree. Bringing her home that evening was the best day of our lives. Little did we know how much joy she would bring. She is truly "man's best friend."
