A heartwarming story of kindness happened in Detroit, Michigan when a family left their dog tied up outside during a snowstorm. Luckily, their caring neighbor stepped in and rescued the poor animal, who they named Blizzard. This furry friend was only two years old when she was saved from the brink of death during that fateful blizzard.
During a snowstorm, the neighbor of the owners of Blizzard noticed that the dog was tied up outside. Concerned for her welfare, he reached out to Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue, an organization dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating stray dogs, especially those that are injured or unwell.
According to Theresa, a Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue member, the man who called them exhibited genuine concern for the poor dog and had been out for quite some time. She also noted that the dog looked terrible and needed immediate help. The caller said that if they didn’t come to rescue the small dog, it might not survive.
It’s important to note that the owners’ choice to leave Blizzard outdoors is against the law. As of February, a regulation in Detroit states that it’s illegal to keep a pet tied up outside for more than three hours.
The volunteers of the foundation were aware of the dog’s urgent need for help. They promptly rushed to the scene to rescue it. The director and organizer of the rescue association, named Theresa Sumpter, shared her thoughts on the matter. According to her, when they picked up the dog, they were pleased to see that it was in good health. Her assistant was even being licked by the grateful dog.
Despite their efforts, the volunteers at Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue were met with cold resistance from the owners of Blizzard. They were denied access to the property even when it came to saving the dog’s life. Thankfully, it was a neighbor who stepped in and convinced the owners to allow the rescue team to remove Blizzard. What made the situation even more heartbreaking was the sight of another pet inside the warm and cozy house while Blizzard was left to suffer outside in the freezing cold.
The dog’s owner had decided to leave her outside and we offered to take her in. Theresa noticed that the pup was wounded, cold, and couldn’t walk properly in the harsh weather. After safely securing her in our truck, she snuggled up and fell asleep. We took her to a veterinarian who discovered that her legs were swollen, infected, and frozen. However, with proper care, the dog made a full recovery. We gave her a temporary home where she now shares a room with two other dogs named Noelle and Cholo. The pup is happy in her foster home and loves playing with her new furry friends.
