Pit Bull Used For Dog Fighting Now Helps This Teen Heal

HILTON HEAD, South Carolina – An unlikely Hilton Head Island pair is helping to heal one another’s wounds. Naomi Gosdin, an 11th-grade student at Hilton Head High, suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder, the result of a number of factors, her parents say, including bullying at school.

Her dog, Twinkie, was found wandering the streets after Tropical Storm Irma. Before they met, Twinkie, a pit bull, had been forced into dog fights. Bite marks covered her head and body.

Now, Twinkie performs the cuddle command when she sees Naomi curled in a fetal position or hears her crying.

Both their lives got better once they connected.
