A fostered Pit Bull named Demi (now Maggie) got to meet her new dad for the very first time and it was like “they had known each other for years.” Maggie jumped up onto her new dad and couldn’t stop hugging and kissing him. She was so happy she even knocked his hat off.
Pitties From Heaven makes it their mission to foster Pit bulls so they can find loving homes. The rescue in South Carolina shared the adorable clip on TikTok captioning the video, “This is why we foster. This is the moment a neglected dog becomes part of a family.”

According to The Dodo, husband and wife Mary and Mark McCraw wanted to rescue a new dog after their previous dog Mischka died from cancer. When they learned about Maggie, the dog melted their hearts and they knew they wanted her to join their family.
Maggie’s affection wasn’t reserved for just Mark. Mary told the Dodo that Maggie fully embraced her too. “I bent down so she would not be intimidated, and within seconds she was in my lap and in my life,” she said. “Meeting her was love at first sight, it was an instant connection. We feel like she was meant to be with us.”
Andra Mack, who fostered Maggie says that Maggie was one of the sweetest dogs she had ever fostered. “They were meant to be together,” Andra told The Dodo of Maggie and the McCraws. “The beam of sunshine that is clear in the video makes me believe that their former dog, Mischka, was looking down on that meeting and smiling.”
