It’s a tragedy losing a loved one, moreover when that important being was our most loyal companions. That’s why when the nuns from Our Lady of Christian Doctrine lost their beloved dog, they decided that the only way to give back to his memories is to adopt and help a stray dog find a home.

They later on met nine-year-old Remy. Because she’s a pit bull, and a lot of people still have this wrong connotation of them, she spent months at Hi Tor Animal Care Center without being adopted.

“I purposely wanted a dog that nobody else wanted. I wanted to bring a dog home that might get euthanized if we didn’t take her. And when I noticed that the sign said ‘nine years,’ I said, ‘Virginia, we want this one, because nobody else is going to want her,” Sister Veronica Medez told local media.

When they took her home, Remy was nothing but a big ball of sunshine.

“She’s a senior and we’re seniors, and she [is a] gentle dog, and friendly!” said Sister Virginia Johnson.
