Domenico Rossi 2008 – November 7, 2014 RIP
On November 7, 2014 we discovered Domenico had been bitten by a snake. Sadly, despite the heroic efforts of Pancho and Cesar who tried desperately to save his life, he passed away.
Domenico was rescued in 2008 in Big Bear Lake, CA. Shorty got a call that a pit bull was running loose in the forest of Big Bear. After only about 30 minutes of chasing him, Domenico was rescued.
Domenico was adopted out twice from Shorty. The first adopter had problems with keeping him inside of the back yard. The second adopter was abusive to him by having Domenico chained in the back yard with no food and water. Shorty had to do a repo of Domenico. Shorty then decided to keep Domenico forever.
Domenico got into plenty of trouble by trying to escape on a couple of occasions. He was even missing in Mexico for a couple of days until he was located in the river by Juan, one of Shorty’s assistants.
Domenico enjoyed his days in Mexico. He loved spending time in Shorty’s garden in Mexico and sunbathing and loved spending time with Bebi, Hercules and the puppies.
We are heartbroken and miss him so much!
