A puppy named Edison is getting a new leash on life thanks to a man who rescued him from the roadway.


A young dog was hit by a car and left for dead in Sterling Heights, but is now making a miraculous recovery thanks to one man.

Daryl Stephens was out walking his own dog when he found 9-month-old Edison in a field near Schoenherr and Canal roads. Edison was injured severely but alive.

The dog needed several surgeries but his owners could not afford the care he would need. The community stepped in to help. Now, Edison is resting in good hands.

"The people at Faithful Friends Animal Rescue have taken care of his veterinary cost, they're really helping him out. They'll find him a foster, maybe it will be me, we'll see what happens, but either way he's going to go to a good home," said Stephens.

Stephens said they think Edison is a Labradoodle mix.

Faithful Friends set up a Facebook page for anyone wanting to know Edison's condition or wanting to donate toward his care.

Edison could be released to foster care as early as Friday.
