Family Didn’t Want Dog Anymore. So They Chained Her Outside During A Blizzard

Someone in Detroit noticed that their neighbor had chained their two-year-old dog outside during a blizzard overnight.

The poor dog was shivering and holding up her paws because it had been so cold.
The neighbor knew that they had to urge help immediately. If the pup stayed outside for any more , she would have died. They quickly called up Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue, explained things , and asked if rescuers could come get the dog.


A law passed last February that made it illegal for owners to tie a dog outside for quite three hours, but this family clearly didn’t care and broke the law anyway.

When rescuers arrived, they knocked on the family’s door, but they didn’t want to speak to rescuers. Detroit Pit Crew staff knew that they had to convince the family to surrender the dog. once they finally spoke to the family, they were shocked and heartbroken at what they heard.
“[The neighbor] opened the door to point out me that the opposite dog was inside, and she or he said that [the owner] didn’t want the dog that was outside anymore and that they were just getting to leave it out there,” Theresa Sumpter, founding father of ther rescue told The Dodo. “So I went ahead and said, ‘Yes, we’ll take the dog. She’s obviously injured and she or he ’s cold and she can’t be call at this weather.’”

They fittingly named the dog “Blizzard,” and carried her into their truck, where she curled into a ball and fell asleep. She was probably with great care relieved to finally be safe and warm. They then took her to the vet to treat her swollen and frostbitten paws.


The next day, she visited accept a foster who already had two other rescue dogs. She gets along great together with her new doggy friends and loves every human she meets. She is extremely friendly and sweet, despite everything she has been through.

Unfortunately, this family did the incorrect thing by leaving their unwanted dog outside within the freezing snow. If you ever witness anything like this, contact authorities or a rescue immediately. Shelters are always happy to require in unwanted animals.
