Numerous scenarios make rescuing dogs difficult. But nothing compares to the difficulty of dog rescue missions carried out in inclement weather. The following story describes how a dog and her puppies were rescued during a terrible storm.
A group of dog rescuers from Hope For Paws faced a problematic rescue mission. They had to go out in the middle of a raging storm to save a dog and her puppies, enduring harsh winds and rain showers. They put their lives in danger without hesitation, which is uncommon among animal rescuers.
Fortunately, the dog they were rescuing was not difficult to handle. The mother dog was scared and hesitant, but when offered food, she became more cooperative. A rescuer was able to restrain her while carefully removing the puppies from their hiding place.
The rescuer was very gentle with the puppies. For example, when the puppies were taken away from their mother, the rescuer would place them near her face so she could lick them. This gesture alerted the dog to the fact that the puppies were not in danger.
The puppies were placed inside a vehicle, and the mother soon joined them. The rescuer also checked to see if they had missed any puppies in the nearby bushes. After determining the location, the rescuers concentrated on caring for the dogs in their vehicles before driving to a veterinary clinic.
The eight puppies in the litter were split equally between three males and five females. All of them seemed to be in excellent health. Unfortunately, however, some of them appeared to be suffocating. If the rescuers hadn’t moved swiftly and effectively, they might have been in considerably worse condition.
The mother dog and her puppies were housed at Hope For Paws’ animal shelter. They would stay until they were adopted. Check out the source below to learn more about them.
