As the impact of COVID-19 continues to disrupt rescue groups around the globe, the Detroit Pit Crew remains steadfast in their commitment to saving dogs in need. Recently, they were approached by a scruffy little pup who was in dire straits, crying out for assistance. Fortunately, he stumbled upon the right doorstep and received the help he so desperately needed. Thanks to the kindness of a compassionate stranger, this little dog’s tears turned into grateful wags of his tail.
The guy made a wise decision to reach out to the Detroit Pit Crew volunteers, and they didn’t waste any time in coming to his rescue. These compassionate volunteers are still out there, doing everything they can to save neglected animals while being cautious. They took the dog to their shelter and sought the help of Animal Control Chief Brian Pylar, who also owns Bubbles n Barks grooming shop, to assist the pup, whom they affectionately called Luigi.
The animal rescue volunteers acted quickly to get Luigi a much-needed haircut. His fur was severely matted and had evidence of fecal matter and urine, but thankfully, he didn’t have any skin infections despite his unhygienic state. The volunteers spent a few minutes working on Luigi and managed to remove over three pounds of dirty, matted hair. Throughout the process, he remained calm and cooperative.
Amidst their laughter, they quipped that “beneath all that mess was a tiny pooch! And a charming one, at that!” Once his much-needed grooming was complete, Luigi was brought to the vet for a checkup. Fortunately, the results indicate that the little fellow is in good health.
Although he appears sad and anxious, the Detroit Pit Crew volunteers are confident that the adorable pup will thrive under the care of a foster family. To ensure his full recovery and eventual placement in a loving home, Luigi will require specialized attention. He must learn to coexist with humans and witness firsthand their kind and compassionate nature to overcome his fear and melancholy. This little fellow is on track for a brighter and more joyful future.
This teaches us not to judge a book by its cover. Even though Luigi may not be the most attractive with his untidy hair, he is still a lovable pup who craves attention. Don’t forget to spread their tales on your social media platforms!
