When a neighbor in Detroit allegedly released his dog to purposely attack a stray mother dog and her tiny puppies on Sunday afternoon, volunteers with the Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue were able to step up to the tragic situation and rescue the lactating mom along with her puppies.
According to the organization’s Facebook page, officers from the Detroit Police Department were contacted by concerned residents who called 911.
“The owner of the attacking dog reportedly had purposely left their dog off a chain to attack the stray mom, and he proceeded to video tape the attack,” the organization posted on social media, accompanied by photos of the mother dog and her tiny puppies.
Officers from the police department were quick to respond; the mother dog and her six puppies survived the attack. The suspect is currently in custody.
All of the dogs are safe and have been transported to the Advanced Animal Emergency veterinarian hospital for care. At this time, the mother dog is nursing her puppies. She will be undergoing surgery to have her wounds cleaned up and sutured where needed including drainage tubes inserted to avoid infection. For now, she gets to rest and care for her family.
Many thanks to the Detroit Police Department for caring and responding so quickly – saving the dogs’ lives.
