Firefighters responding to a fire in Detroit found a man and his Pit Bull when they arrived to the burning house. According to ClickOnDetroit, the man later died from his injuries, but his pup survived.
The firefighters carried the scared dog into an ambulance where she was given oxygen.
There was hope she would pull through despite having suffered burns and the effects of smoke inhalation.
After getting a bath the Pittie was handed over to Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue, where the firefighters who saved her shared her story . They told Detroit Pit Crew that she seemed to be very good with kids and appeared to be housetrained.
When asked if they had named her, one firefighter said they had: Halle, short for a fireman’s tool called a Halligan.
The Detroit Pit Crew Facebook page showed sweet Halle enjoying snuggles and paw shakes from veterinary staff at Groesbeck Animal Hospital, where she received the medical care she needed.
Theresa Sumpter, director of Detroit Pit Crew, said in an interview that she would reach out to the victim’s family to see if anyone would be able to care for Halle. If not, Halle would be placed for adoption into a forever home.
