Karlee, a dog rescuer, received a call about a litter of puppies living beneath a pile of wood at a construction site that her friends were tearing down.
The pups had been pulled out by locals, but they were quite afraid. Karlee left some food and water outside as an enticement, and she then headed out to help.
When the puppies did emerge, they were able to capture each and every one of them. But in order to try for their mother, they would have to go back in a few days.
She was also considerably more wary of being seen than her pups when they finally caught her. But one of the people who feeds her had an idea to try to catch the dog; he said if he took the puppies, the mama would follow.
After loading the puppies into his truck, the man began the ten-minute trip to Karlee’s residence. To my surprise, my mother was right there with me the entire time.
In the end, everything turned out, even if they had to stop regularly to give her water breaks.
Finally, it would take approximately a week for the mother to feel secure enough to enter the house. But she was relieved to be able to spend time with her children once she did!
This simply goes to demonstrate a mother’s determination to go the extra mile for her children.
