Hope For Paws was contacted by a concerned citizen about a stray black dog wandering in the middle of 50-degree heat. The animal rescue team rushed to the pup’s location because they knew that the poor animal might suffer from heatstroke if left alone for too long.
The animal rescuers met up with the person who called for assistance, and they both noticed that the dog’s nipples were sore. They quickly realized that she was a nursing mom who recently gave birth.
No one knew where the puppies were, so the rescuer decided to spend time with the dog because he did not want to take the mama pooch without her babies. The man wanted to rescue all the dogs together, so he followed her around the entire day.
The animal rescuer noticed that the mama dog was starting to walk with a purpose at 8 p.m. He ensured not to lose her by following the dog’s every footstep and maintained a safe distance because he did not want to scare the nursing mom.
The dog eventually led the rescuer to an abandoned-looking lot where the puppies were. The rescuer realized that he was not alone when he heard dogs barking all at the same time and a man asking what he needed.
The rescuer asked if the man needed help with the dogs, but he was told that the pups’ owner was unavailable. The worker said that he did not want to take the animals without permission, so he decided to come back the following morning.
The Hope For Paws rescuer returned to the dogs’ location with his colleagues and rescued all the puppies. The animal workers went back that same afternoon to get the mom and brought her to the shelter where she received the medical attention she needed.
