Theresa Sumpter, director of the Detroit Pit Crew, worked with volunteers to get the frightened dog to safety. The rescue, however, was easier said than done.

“I thought my heart was going to pound out of my chest when I saw her run near the edge of the roof like she was going to jump”

Katie Krupp is no stranger to seeing strays linger around Detroit’s east side. But on Monday, she ran into a surprise during her commute to work: a dog living inside the remains of a burned-out, abandoned house.

After a long 45 minutes, the rescue was complete – both the pit bull and the volunteers were able to make it out of the dangerous home safely. The pit bull, a female who’s thought to be around 16 months old, has since been named Juno.

Krupp told WXYZ that she’s already in love with the dog and is considering adopting her.

“Juno is doing great now – she is currently at an animal hospital receiving care,” Sumpter said, adding that she was unsure how long Juno had lived in the abandoned home.

After Juno is all cleared health-wise, she will be put up for adoption and join a forever family – within the confines of a proper, much cozier house.
