This powerful photo showing a distressed dog that has dug a huge hole as if rescuing a lost owner was taken by Vesna Mihajloski, a woman from Serbia. It went viral on social media and we managed to discover that the dog’s story is much different!
After spending some time watching the dog, Mihajloski discovered that she was concerned about something else under that headstone
Turned out, the dog had hidden a litter of puppies!
There were 4 newborn puppies huddled in a tight ball
Mihajloski knew she had to do something to help the courageous dog, so after a quick snack she took her and the babies home
Mihajloski put together a warm bed and let the family rest. She was so moved by the courage of the dog and her love for her babies, she named her “Mama”
Mama was constantly checking on her newborns
And of course, keeping them well fed too!
The pups quickly grew to love their new home
Pups received regulars checks-ups at the vet. They were neutered and Mama was spayed
The proud Mama
Touching story with a happy ending
