A terrified dog was surrendered to the Marin Humane Society in California. Once she arrived, they examined her and discovered that she had recently given birth.
They were unsure of where the puppies were, but assumed the owner had them.
Since the puppies were so young and still needed their mom, the shelter reached out to the former owners and convinced them to surrender the puppies to them as well so they could give them the proper care they needed.
Meanwhile, the mama dog was still so scared that she wouldn’t even come out from hiding in the corner of her kennel. It was heartbreaking to see, especially since her former owner just dropped her off at the shelter and didn’t even want her anymore.
But things quickly changed when she was reunited with her puppies. After one of the shelter workers held out her puppies to her, the mama dog slowly came out from hiding and came to see her pups. Their reunion will melt your heart! They should’t have been separated in the first place, but thankfully the mama and her pups are all together again. I bet the puppies were just as happy to have their mom back.
Watch their reunion in the video below, and be prepared for your heart to melt. It’s amazing to see how quickly the mom’s mood changes when she first sees her pups! She seems like a whole new dog. Her puppies definitely bring out the best in her.
