Erica was rescued by Detroit Dog Rescue at the beginning of 2020 and adopted in the spring.

Here is an update from former DDR Erica now Sammy. She is loving life in the woods with us. She loves the snow, she loves to snuggle up with us and sass us when she doesn’t get her way with snacks or gets frustrated with puzzle toys/enrichment boxes.

We absolutely adore her! She has brought a much needed balance to our lives. Thank you guys again for giving this girl a chance!

Detroit Dog Rescue

Detroit Dog Rescue is Detroit's first no-kill shelter. Founded in February 2011, DDR helps between 80 to 120 dogs at any given time. Our rescue is known for taking animals in trouble that most regard as unadoptable and investing the time and training needed to rehabilitate and re-home these dogs. Detroit Dog Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and licensed by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and holds a Platinum Award of Transparency through GuideStar.
