A dog wuns 3 km looking for help for her puppies
The event occurred in Almeria, Spain. This dog had given birth to no less than 10 babies. Because of its notable signs of malnutrition and carelessness, it was obvious that it lived on the street. As if that were not enough, it had a broken leg. But to save its puppies it did not hesitate to walk 3 km demonstrating once again the courage, strength and kindness that dogs have.
At the Turre Veterinary Clinic, the doctors were amazed by the appearance of a malnourished dog, injured and with signs that it had become a mother very recently. It wanted to be followed.
The men walked next to it following its slow and aching pace until 3 km later they found something even more amazing: 10 precious newborn puppies. We cannot know how the dog managed to give birth to so many dogs, feed them at least one day, walk with a broken leg, seek help and return to hiding … The only thing we can guess is that it is, without a doubt, an incomparable demonstration of motherly love.
Both the dog and her babies were taken to the veterinary clinic where they were offered all the necessary care.
