When we first started putting this project together, Naomi and Gimp were one of the first pit bull families that was mentioned as needing a photo shoot. Naomi saw Gimp on Petfinder and talked her mom into going out to Saving Grace to visit her and from what I hear, it was love at first sight. I asked her if she had to work hard to convince her mom to adopt a pit bull, but she said her mom was pretty open to the idea (if only more folks were like that!!)
So why the name Gimp? Because Gimp has a minor mobility problem. One back leg doesn’t have a foot at all, and the other is sort of incomplete… Still, she gets along without too much trouble.
And while she’s not to crazy about the camera, its pretty obvious that she’s madly in love with Naomi and her little sister. And I’m fairly certain the feeling is mutual.
