A unique post on Craigslist is a message to the unknown previous owners of a once-emaciated, now rescued pit bull that was discovered as a result of an eviction. The current owner of the dog holds no hard feelings and seems to only want to give an update of sincere love and thanks for their added family member.

She is sleeping next to me as I type this, grunting with joy. In fact, she sleeps on my bed every night. Your dog is an awesome dog. We love her so much. The past three years we've had with her have brought us (and her) so much happiness.

One bit of information they are seeking is the age and original name of their beloved pup. We encourage you to reach out to this person if you have any information about the history of this beautiful pit bull.

Tristan, a third-grader in Missouri, was selling cups of lemonade for a dollar outside of the Davis’ family yard sale to help raise money for adoption fees. Over the last four years, Donnie and Jimmy Davis have had legal guardianship of Tristan Jacobson but have been unable to come up with enough money to afford the fees.

In the end, the total from the lemonade and yard sale surpassed their initial $5,000 goal, as the family together raised $7,100 to pay for Tristan's adoption. A crowdfunding campaign was also set up that gained $6,900. The additional money will go towards Triston's college education.
