Man Selling Pit Bull Puppies For Dog Fighting Was Exposed After a Facebook Post

The Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue group is absolutely incredible; the work they do is astounding and they’ve saved so many lives.That’s why when the founder of the organization saw a recent Facebook post about Pit Bull puppies — her heart sank.

An extremely disturbing Facebook post was put up recently and local animal advocates were outraged.They contacted Sumpter immediately in hopes that she could help. She couldn’t believe what she was seeing.

A man went to Facebook and posted that he was selling two Pit Bull puppies. In the photo that accompanied the ad — he was apathetically holding the two pups by the scruff of their necks.

As if that wasn’t bad enough — it was the comments that people were leaving that truly disturbed Sumpter. Someone had expressed interest in buying the puppies; however, he brazenly said it would be for the purpose of dog fighting.

Obviously, people who saw the horrific comment began to verbally attack the seller of the puppies. Thankfully, Sumpter was shown the post and she was determined to get those puppies out of his, or any other abuser’s, hands.

“We immediately were like ‘we need to save these puppies. They are in danger now.’ We immediately contacted the seller,” Sumpter said. The next morning, the rescue group set out to purchase the puppies — they bought them for $150.

However, the seller had no idea that they were from a rescue organization. “We are not going to lecture them.”Sumpter explains. “We are not going to ask them why they posted.”
