ASPCA Happy Tails: A Virtual Match

Wednesday, October 24, 2012 - 10:45am

It’s a classic “love at first sight” story—while browsing Facebook, Aurora Bergmann saw a post featuring Berry, a special pit bull terrier in need of a home at the ASPCA Adoption Center in New York City. Bergmann felt Berry’s picture was posted just for her. According to the post, Berry would thrive with lots of room to roam and a canine companion—two things Bergmann had plenty of.

A country life with Bergmann’s family—including their four dogs—seemed like a perfect fit. The Bergmanns had adopted and rescued three of their four dogs, and when they visited the ASPCA Adoption Center in New York City for the first time in October, they were on a mission to meet Berry and take her home.

“It gives us joy to be able to help a dog,” Bergmann says.

It was immediately clear that Berry was happy to be home—and she quickly became comfortable in the family’s fur-filled household. 

“When we come home, she wags her tail and gives us kisses,” Bergman says. Berry loves spending her time romping around outside on the Bergmann’s land, and is coming around to spending time inside the house, too.

She plays with the four other dogs, but is especially chummy with a pit bull mix. Bergmann’s son rescued a sweet pit who had been abandoned by the side of a highway in New Jersey, and it warmed the family to the pit bull breed.

“Now we realize what wonderful dogs they are,” Bergmann says.

 We couldn’t agree more. We think Berry is one lucky pooch!
