Back in April, we shared with you the sweet sounds of 8-year-old Anna Masusock as she serenaded Laila, a pittie whose owner was serving overseas in the Navy.

This month, we’re happy to bring you this new video of Laila — bouncing off the walls with crazy, pittie happiness — as she realizes here mom is home!

Second-Class Petty Officer Christina Baez was reunited with Laila yesterday after a yearlong stint.

The Masusock family fostered Laila for Baez, who serves in the Navy, through PACT for Animals, an organization which allows families to foster pets for people who are deployed overseas or unexpectedly hospitalized.

“With PACT, you become a family,” Donna Masusock told NJ.com. “Laila’s like a family member, I’m even friends with Christina’s family on Facebook.”

It was not their first time fostering a dog for PACT, but Masusock noted Laila “was the most laid back dog we’ve ever had.”

“You’re fostering so they don’t have to go to a shelter,” she added. “If it wasn’t for PACT, Christina would’ve lost Laila.”

Check out the video as Laila gets progressively more excited. It’s heartwarming to be sure.

  1. This is so beautiful…she is so excited and u could hear her emotions this mad me want to tear up God bless u and that beautiful animal.

  2. Oy, there’s always some tinfoil-hat-wearing troll like Mary Ann Redfern commenting on articles like these. You know – people who read a few articles about pit bull attacks and assume that all of them are blood-thirsty killers, even though there’s an estimated 3-5 million pits in the US but only 20-30 deaths associated with them each year (assuming the breed was accurately ID’d in each case, which is tough to prove).

    Mary, I’m sorry you are so narrow-minded that you can’t see these attacks as isolated incidents.

    • Mt daughter rescued a pit-Dalmatian,. She’s the sweetest girl. Even sweet to my bird!! Have had Dobie’s sweet too! Please, learn how dogs become that way, bad humans, not the dogs…..

  3. Wow. Another close minded idiot. Your loss you stupid fool, because you will never know the purest love of a pittie.. so sad for you idiot..
