Pit bulls get a bad rap. People who are lucky enough to spend time with pitties know the truth — these dogs are nothing but big old cuddle bugs. They’re desperate to please their owners, and they love being part of a family. In fact, they were once nicknamed “nanny dogs” because they’re so good with kids!
A young girl named Scarlett and her family were lucky enough to discover this for themselves. They adopted a beautiful pit puppy from Priceless Pet Rescue. Lebowski was just 10 weeks old, and Scarlett was just four when they met.
They immediately bonded with each other. Lebowski loved following Scarlett around. He even let her dress him up and have tea parties with him. There’s one thing the two enjoy more than anything else: cuddling up together for a nice nap.
Scarlett’s mom says the two have been falling asleep together from the very beginning. It’s not uncommon to find them sleeping soundly on the couch during the day. At night, Lebowski faithfully follows Scarlett to her room. When he was just a few months old, he slept under her bed, determined to be close to his favorite person.
Eventually, Lebowski figured out that the bed was more comfortable. Now, he sleeps by Scarlett’s side every night. Scarlett’s mom is fine with this arrangement. She says that the two of them both sleep much better and more soundly when they’re together.
“..but, wherever it is they sleep in this house, it’s always together and that’s all that matters to them ❤ ” she wrote on Instagram.
