Hope For paws, an animal rescue in California, received a message for help on their emergency line for a mother dog and her 6 puppies.
Apparently, the pregnant dog was abandoned in the desert where she brought to life six puppies. Fortunately, she located refuge at a plant nursery. The kindhearted owners provided food and water for her and also reached out to the rescue for help.
Eldad, owner of Hope For paws, drove 3 hrs to the desert to rescue the dogs. When he pulled onto the road of the nursery, Desert Moon Drive, he decided to name the mother canine Moon.
The wonderful and friendly dog came right up to her rescuer wagging her tail. “When Moon heard my voice, she ran towards me as if she was expecting my arrival, laid on the ground, and rolled over … it was such a wonderful moment,” recalled Eldad.
She recognized he existed to help and didn’t protest when he picked up her puppies.
Eldad was surprised by just how trusting and loving Moon was and also called her “special” multiple times.
After making sure the pups nursed and also treating Moon to a cheeseburger, all the canines were packed into the vehicle for the drive back to Los Angeles.
Moon and all 6 of her puppies– Andromeda, Nebula, Supernova, Comet, Lynx, and Crypto– were examined by a vet and after that placed in a kennel together for a good night’s rest.
Moon is around three years old and shown up with eye infections in both eyes because of a condition called entropion. The condition causes her eyelids to roll inwards and irritates her corneas. When her pups are weaned, she will certainly receive surgery on both eyes to fix the condition.
As for the pups, all remain in health and thought to be six-week-old German shepherd mixes. There are five females and simply one male, Crypto.
The following morning all of the dogs got a warm bubble bath prior to heading to LA Animal Rescue. They are presently in a foster home yet will soon be ready for their permanently homes.
The rescue is taking applications for Mother Moon, which they describe as “extremely eager to please and also very gentle”, and all of her adorable pups.
Eldad thanked all the Hope For paws’ supporters who make rescues like this possible. “To all our supporters– we love you and we truly appreciate all your help.”
