OMG this is so heartwrenching!!!!!!! More kids burning dogs...WTH??? What kind of monsters are being raised today? I say hold both the kids and parents accountable! Can someone do a petition? I would but I'm already overloaded. They need a push to make sure this gets taken seriously! Here's more on how we can help:

2 charity groups are providing for Miracle's care; they need donations to pay for the extensive treatment.

If you would like to help Miracle with a donation, you can send checks to the Oakland Veterinary Referral Services at 1400 Telegraph Road in Bloomfield Hills, Mich. 48302.

How can anyone be so cruel? What kind of monsters raised these "children" that they are capable of inflicting harm like this on helpless animals? Jail the parents, TOO!

It figures they were pit bull puppies. This poor little one... I honestly pray that she fights with every little bone in her body and pulls through. If any breed could do it, it would be this one. Prove those little punks wrong. I hope the others that died in the fire didn't suffer.

Part of me wonders if these kids have a pit bull that had pups, and somehow got it in their head to get rid of the puppies??? Maybe one of the "parents" mentioned getting rid of them...

I HAVE SAID THIS FOR MANY YEARS--"IT'S THE PARENTS RESPONSIBILITY TO TEACH KID'S AT A VERY YOUNG AGE THAT IT IS NOT O.K. TO HARM ANY LIVING THING"!! THE PARENTS SHOULD BE HELD JUST A ACCOUNTABLE AS THE HORRIBLE KIDS THEY RAISED! BLESS THIS BABY THAT SHE HEAL AND FIND A KIND AN LOVING HOME!

The fact that children can be so evil scares me to the core. What kind of adults will they be?

Brenda, you hit the nail on the head!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But............when the laws allow the parents to be legally and monetarily responsible for the actions of their kids, only then will they teach them compassion. Make the parents serve time right along with their kids and maybe they will start teaching that all living creatures feel pain and they must respect all life. They would start knowing where their kids were and what they were doing.

These children are heartless demented monsters and both the children and the parents should be held accountable. After all it IS the parents that raised them to be this way. None of the involved should be allowed to ever be near or have a pet for as long as they live. The statistics show that when children do this kind of harm to an animal while younger that they turn into sadistic murderers later in life. It happens all too much and it is sad. They have no respect for life, wheter it is an animals or their own. The parents should know what their children are doing, so in failing to do that, they have failed as parents as well. All should be made to serve the longest length of time in jail, parents and children.

THIS IS SO SAD. THESE KIDS(CHILDREN) IF CAUGHT SHOULD BE PUNISHED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW. SORRY IF SOME OF YOU DO NOT AGREE. WE HAD THIS SAME TYPE OF CRUELTY COMMITTED HERE IN CALIFORNIA IN SONOMA, COUNTY. TWO TEENAGE GIRLS FOUND A SMALL NEWBORN PUPPY AND TOOK HIM DOWN TO THE RIVER AND PUT IT IN A CAGE AND SET IT AFIRE. WHAT AN OUTRAGE. THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY'S OFFICE AND SHERIFF'S OFFICE WERE FLOODED WITH CALLS FROM ALL OVER THE STATE AND COUNTY. THE GIRLS WERE APPREHENDED AND THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY IS FILING CHARGES AND THEY WILL GO TO COURT AND HOPEFULLY BE PUNISHED. ALSO IN THE NAPA COUNTY A MAN SHOT HIS NEIGHBORS CAT AND KILLED IT WHILE IT WAS SUNNING ITSELF ON THE PROPERTIES DIVIDING FENCE. WELL THIS MAN IS NOW IN PRISON. OUR LOCAL JUDGE SAID THAT DOES IT. HE GOT FIVE YEARS (WHICH STILL IS NOT ENOUGH). SO I HOPE THESE CHILDREN GET WHAT'S COMING TO THEM.
IF THEY WOULD DO THIS TO THIS POOR LITTLE INNOCENT CREATURE THEY WOULD NOT HESITATE TO DO THIS TO A BABY EITHER. IT IS A KNOWN FACT THAT MOST SERIAL KILLERS WERE KNOWN TO HAVE KILLED AND SLAUGHTERED ANIMALS WHEN THEY WERE YOUNG. THESE LITTLE ANIMALS ARE ALL OF GOD'S CREATIONS AS WE ARE AND THESE INDIVIDUALS MAY GET AWAY WITH THIS NOW BUT WHEN THEY HAVE TO STAND BEFORE ALMIGHTY GOD THEY WILL BE WITHOUT EXCUSE.
SINCERELY,
A GREAT ANIMAL LOVER AND CARETAKER OF FERAL CAT COLONY,S IN CALIFORNIA

Who the hell can do something like this, what is going on in there minds to treat our voiceless beautiful companion animals in this way, they are very sick, vile and do not belong on this earth, the picture of this poor dog made me feel ill, they need serious help, and quickly.

Have you all seen how well Miracle is doing??? It is wonderful. She stands and walks and does not cry so much now. She really is a miracle and she has survived for a reason. I hope they find and prosecute the monsters that did this to her. She is beautiful and has come such a long way. I am thankful for this news this Thanksgiving :)
I will continue my prayers that she gets stronger each passing day. I love her so much and have never met her. What a wonder she is.

As of last week she is weighing in at 12lbs!!!! I work at the clininc she is at and I can tell you she is doing so well. She wants to play, she's walking , and getting a lot of attention from the staff. We have a surgeon at work that has been taking her home, just to get her used to a home enviornment. Good luch little Angel.

This story just breaks my heart. I just don't understand the cruelty that humans can place on helpless animals. I hope that justice is found for this little Miracle dog!
