On March 12, 2012 DDR was contacted by the Detroit Police Department in hopes that we would rescue a 'pregnant pit bull' that was acquired during a drug raid. Upon arriving to the home, we were surprised when DPD officers had found a second dog, this time chained in the garage in poor shape, living in filthy conditions. We entered the garage to evaluate the situation and this bundle of love was beyond excited to see us! He was large in stature and a big goof ball, so naturally he was named Farley. The dog that we were originally called to rescue was in a cage inside of the house and not the most welcoming. After she was surrendered to us, we carried her cage to the car and both dogs were anxiously off to the next chapter of their lives! Once settling down in the car and accepting a good amount of food, both dogs became calm and extremely loving. A wonderful vet clinic graciously took both dogs in for us, providing emergency care to both. Farley's worm testing was described to us as a "petri dish" that they were going to keep for training purposes, because he had every type of worm, including heartworm. Diamond, while thought to be pregnant, actually had Pyometra and X-rays confirmed that she was not. Her bloating was caused by a serious infection and had to undergo hysterectomy surgery. We are thrilled to say that Diamond is recovering wonderfully and Farley has just completed his first round of heartworm injections. If you are interested in fostering Farley during his heartworm treatments, he will need a quiet and calm environment during this process. If you can provide such an environment for him, please fill out a foster application on our website! Also, we are happy to say that both Diamond and Farley passed their temperament testing! These two amazing dogs will make a great addition to any family. Stay tuned for more updates!
