It was a miracle that a pit bull puppy survived a fire in an abandoned home in Detroit, and that is what this little two-month-old puppy has been named — Miracle.
This past Saturday, neighbors said that a group of teenagers took a litter of five puppies into the house and ran out of the house after setting it on fire.
Firefighters were able to save Miracle from the house, but unfortunately her littermates did not make it out of the fire. Miracle was rushed to an animal hospital. Veterinarians said this little puppy had first-, second- and third-degree burns all over her body.
Dr. Karen Fidell, a veterinarian, said, “Right now her chances are somewhat guarded. It’s 50-50 at best. She’s been treated for some very serious burns.”
Authorities are investigating the fire and the abuse.
Donations are being accepted for Miracle’s care and recovery. For more information, call 248-334-6877.
