Abi was a new mom, having just given birth to ten puppies, when she was found afraid and exhausted at a construction site in Miami in September last year. She was hardly able to produce milk because of her malnutrition, but the devoted mother refused to leave her puppies' side.
No Paw Left Behind Rescueheard about the little family and immediately stepped up to take all 11 dogs in. Abi was severely hydrated and her puppies were getting no nutrition; they would surely not have made it if the association had not taken them in at that moment.
The mom dog was very protective at first, and seemed terrified of human interaction, as she had been fending for herself in the streets for a long time. But slowly, her gentle nature began to emerge and she turned out to be the sweetest pup.
If you live in England, you can visit the RSPCA, and if you live in the United States, you can visit the ASPCA to get more information about pets available for adoption.Tens of thousands of dogs and cats end up in shelters each year, either due to neglect, abuse or abandonment. Consider adopting before you shop, and visit your local shelters before going to a breeder. Every dog and cat deserves a fair chance at a forever home.
