BALTIMORE — A local animal foster rescue is looking to win a $25,000 grand prize from Petco.

The journey of 10-year-old Julie and her pitbull Zeke made the company's top 100 list of Amazing Love Stories.

Julie's family adopted Zeke from Pitties & Purrs in Baltimore, despite their initial fear of the pitbull breed.

Their story earned the rescue a $10,000 reward just for cracking the top 100, but now they're competing for top honors against all the other finalists from around the country.
