Mama-Dog With Wire Wrapped Around Her, Lay Unconscious As Her Babies Still Nursed

In poverty-stricken parts of the world, rescuers do all they can to help animals in need. They mostly operate through donations and through the kindness of others. A small rescue group got a call about a mama dog that was lying helpless in the middle of the forest. They drove there immediately.

The mother dog had given birth to a vibrant, healthy litter of pups. Amazingly, she had wire wrapped tightly around her abdomen and it was obvious it had been there for quite some time. The rescuers look closer and can see that this wasn’t an accident. Someone demented and cruel had done this to the poor dog.

By the time rescuers arrived, Mama was already unconscious. Her babies crawled all over her, still attempting to nurse. They didn’t understand that she was so sick. Because she was still nursing and not drinking enough herself, she was badly dehydrated. Rescuers didn’t hesitate and gave her an IV right on the scene.

The rescuers also removed the wire from her body. It was time to transport her and her babies to the vet clinic. The vet wasn’t optimistic. Her wound was badly infected and dehydration had caused all her organs to shut down. She was beyond saving and that broke everyone’s hearts. If they could have changed anything, it would have been to save her life.

But because she was such a good mother, all five of her puppies are in excellent health. We realize Mama’s death is horrible and unfair but the rescuers understand that if she had her final wish, it would be for her babies to go to loving homes.

A wonderful foster stepped up to take the puppies and promised to keep all five babies together until they’re old enough to go to good homes. Thankfully, there are several loving adopters already interested in the babies. We realize it’s not the perfect outcome but are so grateful that these little lives were spared. Let’s send our prayers to Mama and her babies, and to all the wonderful moms out there that sacrifice every single day so their babies can thrive! To see the rescue, scroll down.
