To be considered a hero, it is not a requirement to be large and strong. Four young boys aged 7 to 13 have proved this to be true. The kids are brothers from Detroit who offered a stray dog a chance at a better life, making them the dog's heroes.
Kevin, Kenny, Kenneth, and Andrew were helping a neighbor move homes when they discovered a puppy in an abandoned home. The lads were astounded to learn that she could not move because she was tied up with a bungee cord.
It was also very evident that the poor dog had not been fed for some time. She was emaciated and quite frail. She appeared to have lost her desire to fight for her life and she just laid there motionless.
Realizing that the dog really needed immediate help, they set her free and took her home. They even offered her food and a comfortable spot to stay. The boys christened her Sparkles.
As they were unable to keep the dog, they sought assistance from the non-profit Detroit Pit Crew Dog rescue group. A team from the organization quickly arrived and retrieved the dog.
According to the organization's founder, Theresa Sumpter, the children were genuinely worried for the dog's welfare. She could tell that they were concerned about where Sparkles was going and what would happen to her. Theresa informed them that a loving family will adopt the puppy and provide for her needs.
Sparkles was taken in by the charitable organization Pet Tales Rescue in Grand Rapids, Michigan, who already had a list of families interested in adopting her, four days after she was discovered by the kind-hearted young men. She has also gotten medical attention and is now adoptable.
The dog's fate has been changed, and she now has the opportunity to live happily forever, thanks to those caring children.
