Thanx. There are way too many dogs being held captive in this inhumane way in Detroit too. My dog was one of them 10 years ago!

Thank you, Nicole and Suju! That is animal abuse which is against the law! What is wrong with people. I wish I lived there or knew someone who did. I have a two dogs and two cats. One dog came from the pound and the cat was a feral cat, but you would never know it, except when strangers come to the house. The only thing I can do is pray for him. Someone has to take him before winter comes! Oh, this just breaks my heart!!!

Lynn, it is so goooood to see you are better TODAY.

Please pledge for him. This will help him be more attractive to a rescue. What this is, is where people "pledge" to give the rescue that gets him out(pulls) him money for his upkeep with them. This is done for all animals. He has been there a VERY LONG TIME for New York's standards. He is in TERRIBLE TROUBLE. Any amount is o.k., I have seen a lot of 5 and 10 dollars pledges. TRUST ME they add up.

Please please God, show me a miracle, show me that You care for the creatures you put on earth, show me that You are merciful and that you will soften some human's heart enough to give this beautiful boy a forever loving home. After the horrific life he has been subjected to at the hands of vicious humans, do You not think that he deserves it.

Noted ! Just Heartbreaking ! I will NEVER understand how anyone could Chain any animal up outside and just leave them there! Those people should be in Jail for Abuse and Neglect ! Dogs NEED LOVE,CARE,SOCIALIZING,to do this to a dog is HORRIBLE ! Poor baby boy! My Heart HURTS for HIM ! With the Pit Bull Ban in so many Cities and Towns ,this also causes a problem trying to Save/Adopt dogs like him ! I know,there is a Ban in my city,but my dogs where grandfathered in ,I had them before the Ban went into effect! I will always LOVE the Bully Breed ! They are Great dogs ! Praying he gets a Great Family and Home that will Love him forever ! :(
