Boys rescue abandoned dog tied with bungee cords in Detroit

DETROIT – A few boys rescued an abandoned dog tied to a vacant house with bungee cords Friday.

The boys were helping a woman move when they discovered the dog.

Kenny Dancy, 13, Kenneth Dancy, 11, Kevin Dancy and Andrew Daniels, 7, named the dog Sparkle and took care of her until the Detroit Pit Crew could help.

“You could tell they really love this dog,” Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue founder Theresa Sumpter said. “They were protective of the dog and wanted to make sure the dog was going to a good place.”

The boys were compensated for their noble efforts.
