Most often, it is easy to be judged and difficult to be understood by others. This is true to life not just for human beings. It is evident in the case of Simba who had experienced prejudice because of the type of breed he is – an American Pit Bull Terrier.
Living in an apartment in Sweden, Arjanit Mehana, owner of Simba, had been aware that his neighbors did not like his dog. Many of them avoided Simba in the halls, plainly making judgments of him because he is a Pit Bull. One particular older woman who lives a floor below Mehana got edgy and frigid around Simba. She even called him mean with fear in her eyes every time he tried to greet her.
In reality, Simba was a calm, sweet, and well-behaved dog. It was sad that the older woman, along with the rest of the neighbors, had not given themselves the chance to know the dog. Instead, they were preceded by fear from stereotyping the entire breed of Pit Bulls as more aggressive and more violent in contrast to other dog breeds. Nonetheless, Simba had proved to them his true colors.
One time, Mehana, together with Simba, hiked back to their apartment. As they were making for the stairs, the Pit Bull halted and began barking. After a few seconds, he rushed to the door where the older woman lives. Mehana convinced the dog to get moving, but he refused to leave.
It was at that moment that Mehana heard a weak voice from inside, shouting for help, pleading for them not to go. He noticed the unlocked door, so he opened it and went inside with Simba. What they found was the older woman on the floor, unable to move.
According to her, it had been two days since she was lying on the floor due to her broken hip. Her life was completely in danger. Unfortunately, no one had noticed, until Simba timely sensed her!
So as they were waiting for the ambulance Mehana had called, the older woman gave her thanks for hearing her. Mehana initially thought she was talking to him but later realized that she was referring to his dog.
As it turned out, Simba was not a bad dog at all but a hero.
For the next few days, the older woman was in the hospital for recovery. The story was eventually brought into light to their neighborhood. They even gave Simba gifts and treats. How sweet have they become!
Mehana truly knows how wonderful Simba is. He looks forward that the event will enlighten everyone who has misjudged Simba and his kind heart and begin to see him differently, as well as all other bully breeds.
At times, we tend to forget that humans are not the only ones who deserve loyalty and love but dogs too, regardless of what type of breed they are.
