His is at the vet and sedated and is in isolation ready for surgery.
Please help us reach our goal and help Chandler!
This little guy spent the weekend resting and relaxing. Former DDR dog, Queenie, has no problem stepping in as his mom for as long as he needs her.
This special Pit Bull has played foster mom to so many animals in need and we are so proud of her.

Chandler wanted check in with all his supporters. On Sunday he got to get in some snuggle time with Kristina, DDR Executive Director, and his biggest fan. His visitation time is limited because of the risk of infection but puppies are sponges and the love he receives now, in the hospital will shape his behavior in the future.
He had the first surgery, Sunday, to remove the necrotic tissue around his open wound. All went well so his big surgery was scheduled for yesterday, and he pulled through like a champ!!
Doctors were able to place his organ and insides properly inside and closed the incision. They removed the catheter and were hoping for a successful potty night.
Doctors have determined that it's evident that Chandler was tortured and mutilated. We are desperately searching for the man who is responsible for saving Chandler's life and brining him to our shelter. Channel 7 ran the story and aired the footage of the man walking up to our shelter from our security cameras. Please head over to our Facebook page www.facebook.com/detroitdogrescue and view and share the post so we can spread the word.
We need to get justice for Chandler and other puppies that may be in grave danger!
Your support has been amazing and we simply can't thank you enough!
Somebody hurt me really bad, but my friends at Detroit Dog Rescue said my surgeons are going to fix me all up.
Detroit Dog Rescue is trying to find out who did this to me, even their friends at Michigan Humane Society's Cruelty Unit offered to help.
If you know anything about who hurt me, or if you find any of my siblings in Chandler Park, please reach out to Detroit Dog Rescue right away at .firstname.lastname@example.org
A $2,000 reward is being offered for any information leading up to an animal cruelty conviction.
Glad Chandler is out of I.C.U. and looking better. But he does look tired there. Plenty of rest fo him I'm sure.
Praying for this little guy every day! Get well, be strong . Have a wonderful life. You are in loving hands now .
You are all angels! Thank God for your caring hearts.
Such a sweet little guy ! Hope he continues to recover quickly, and is ready to go home to a loving family soon .
Hang in there baby boy. Lots of love and prayers for you from us and our 2 rescue boys.
So happy to hear this little guy is making progress. I am so sickened by this careless, horrifying act that this sweet, innocent animal had to endure at the hand of a human. Stay sweet, Chandler, and can't wait to read more updates on your progress, pup!
