Geoff Hoffman who served in Afghanistan with the Special Operation Forces for eight years on December 20 in Oklahoma was very sad when a home invasion resulted in the robbery of his pit bull dog who is three years of age named Bridget. Hoffman adopted the dog two years ago. Bridget is his best friend that goes with him like his closest friend. Hoffman believed that someone who followed him took advantage of him not being home when the burglar stole his Pit Bull to enter her into the infamous dog fighting contests. Hoffman used the power of social media and made a police report so people in his city in Oklahoma would locate his Pit Bull and reunite them once again. Due to the intense publicity this kidnapping received, the burglar who kidnapped Bridget left the dog on the side of a road near Hoffman's home when his girlfriend saw the dog three days later. Hoffman and his girlfriend took the dog to a local veterinarian where Bridget who had not have anything to eat or drink for three days spent her time recovering. Hoffman used a GoFundMe account to collect at least $2,300 to pay for medical bills. However over $3,700 dollars Hoffman received from well wishers. Hoffman has kept his Facebook page in case anyone loses their pet to report the missing pet on the social media pages. Hoffman to put it mildly is very appreciative of the people who assisted in locating his pet dog before Christmas.

I am sorry I still had to cry. That is horrible that Bridget was forced to fight and then not given food or water. People can be so horrible. I am so glad his girlfriend saw her and he kept at to to find her and that what he did worked. I am so happy Bridget is back where she blongs. I will not understand people that can be so cruel to animals and not care. They have feelings too.
