A dog rescuer named Karlee was alerted to a situation by some friends about a litter of puppies living under a wood pile at a construction site that was in the process of being demolished. Locals had tried pulling the pups out, but they were very scared. So Karlee set out to help and placed some food and water to lure them out.
The puppies finally started coming out, and they were able to catch every last one of them! But they’d have to return over the next few days to try and find their mother. And when they spotted her, she was even more skittish than her pups. But one community member who feeds her had an idea to try to capture the dog; He said if he took the puppies, the mama would follow.
So the man loaded up the pups in his truck and started the 10 minute drive to Karlee’s house. And what do you know, mama followed the entire way! They’d have to make frequent stops over the several-mile trip to give her water breaks, but it worked out in the end.
Finally at home, it’d take about a week for the mother to get comfortable enough to actually go in the house. But when she did, she was happy to relax with her young ones! This just goes to show the will of a mother to go the distance to do whatever necessary for her offspring. 🙂
