An abandoned dog was found tied up with bungee cords behind an empty house in the Detroit, Michigan area. What makes this story even more powerful is that four young kids found the dog and decided to do something about it.

The kids, aged 7 through 13, were out helping a lady move when they saw the dog. The sweet pup was very skinny, neglected, cold, and covered in mange.

The pack of young heroes freed the dog from the bungee cords, took her home, gave her water and also some food. This fab four even gave the dog a name: Sparkle.

At the same time, some workers from Detroit Pit Crew Rescue happened to drive by the area and spotted the kids with the dog. The rescue’s founder, Theresa Sumpter, filmed the kids and posted a message on Facebook. She shared, “These sweet kids rescued this dog that has been left behind on bungee cords and kept her safe until we could come and get her.”
