There is nothing more beautiful than the bond between a parent and child. But for one pregnant dog, that was living at a kill shelter, her life wasn’t the only one being threatened.
She was scheduled to be euth.anized while still pregnant. And no one had any idea! How devastating is that?!
When she went into labor, one puppy at a time made its way into the world. And they just kept coming! Ilwol’s mom stood by as a friend helped Ilwol through the delivery. It was a long, painful process but Ilwol was such a warrior. After she delivered 8 puppies, Ilwol’s mom was ready to let her dog rest. But Ilwol had other plans!
Ilwol gave birth to three more puppies… 11 little lives in total. This meant that Ilwol’s mom didn’t just save one life, she saved 12! What’s even more incredible was that when Ilwol could no longer nurse (her milk dried up), Ilwol’s mom bottle-fed each of her babies ALL DAY LONG!
Thankfully the puppies are now able to eat from a bowl but Ilwol’s mom is still caring for 12 dogs. It’s a lot of work but she promises to find all the puppies forever homes. She will not turn them away or give them to a shelter. She’s determined to make sure each and every dog has the best life possible. Isn’t she amazing?!
We are so grateful for this wonderful rescue and Ilwol’s surprise birth. Every life is precious and we are rooting for the puppies to find the perfect forever homes. To see more, and to experience the cute puppies for yourself, check out the video below!
