Stephens says Patches, right, found Edison, left, while on a walk near Schoenherr and M-59 April 6. At the time, Edison was underweight, and he suffered from bone fractures and a leg partially “de-gloved” of skin and muscle.

The future of a dog named Edison is looking a lot brighter, thanks to the care and attention of a Sterling Heights man, an animal rescue group and an online network of fans.

On April 6, Daryl Stephens, of Sterling Heights, was walking his pit bull, Patches, near Schoenherr and M-59 when the dog discovered a fellow canine in distress: an injured, underweight 9-month-old Labradoodle.

“It was just starting to get dark,” Stephens explained. “I didn’t see him at first. He looked like a small pile of debris. … He was all skin and bones. He had open, exposed bone on his rear leg and could barely walk.”

Stephens concluded that the dog had been hit by a car, and he arranged to have the dog taken to an animal emergency shelter in Rochester. He decided to name the injured dog Edison, partly because he was spotted near the “Edison corridor” of transmission towers that runs north and south through Macomb County.

Stephens quickly found Edison’s original owners after searching Craigslist, and the owners decided to surrender the dog to the Faithful Friends Animal Rescue group in Shelby Township. The dog was reportedly lost in early March, Stephens said.

Faithful Friends President Denise Eichburg said she learned about Edison on a Facebook page dedicated to lost animals that have been found. The rescue group set up its own Facebook page about Edison’s story that has since attracted hundreds of comments and more than 1,000 fans.

So far, online support and donations have raised about $3,800 for Edison’s treatment, and Faithful Friends says it has done what it can to nurse Edison back to health.

“He’s what is called a gentle giant,” Eichburg said. “He’s pretty low-key, calm and sweet-natured. Once he’s had a chance to know a person, he warms right up.”

Stephens said Edison is currently recovering after his second surgery. The dog is still healing after originally suffering from multiple bone fractures, including a broken hip and fibula. He also had a leg partially “degloved” of skin and muscle, Stephens said.

After surgery, Edison can look forward to rehabilitation and therapy. In the meantime, he is living with Stephens, who is acting as a foster guardian. He said it’s possible that he might eventually adopt the animal.

“We don’t think he is going to need more (surgeries), as long as he heals up,” he said. “He’s still severely underweight.”
