10 Unweaned Puppies Lose Mom and are Hand-Raised by Rescuers - PAWsitive

  • 9 years ago
It is a miracle for a stray momma dog to give birth to a few pups and for them to survive a life on the streets. For these pups, their mom gave birth to eleven pups (!), keeping them alive for as long as she could. For reasons unclear to the animal rescuers, their mom died. Her pups were only a couple weeks old. Soon after, one of her pups died too. DPS immediately stepped in and took it upon themselves to hand rear the ten pups themselves. The babies could have ended up at a local Los Angeles city or county shelter but DPS knew that without proper care and attention their chance of survival was slim to none.

Imagine having to wake up every 4 - 6 hours to feed one baby. Now imagine ten! It's a lot of work, wrapped up in bundles of warm fur. It's exhausting, albeit adorable work. The rescuers are nothing short of heroes.

Since filming, all ten pups have gone home to their forever homes.
