Chris and Mariesa are the ultimate dog lovers. They already had 12 dogs but welcomed 3 to 4 more. Here’s our story of how these love-sick doggy parents met their 12th dog ever, Jackson.
Chris and Mariesa’s visit to the shelter proved to be just what one puppy needed.Storie, a hugely pregnant dog, refused to give birth at the county kennel because she was uncomfortable giving birth in the shelter conditions.
Mariesa and Chris were seeking for a puppy to care for, one they could take home right immediately, and that was close to giving birth. They recognized a little terrier with a bulging belly in a shelter and knew it was the one.
When they took Storie to the vet for an ultrasound, they were startled to learn that she was carrying 12 puppies inside her.The couple swiftly started constructing a kennel in their home because Storie was due to give birth in a few days.
Storie went into labor that night, just 18 hours after being picked up from the shelter, much to their astonishment. She was actually only looking for a caring home in which to give birth!
Storie and the couple welcomed 12 new puppies into the world. Chris and Mariesa already had their eyes on one puppy each to keep before putting the rest up for adoption.
With the help of Pibbles and More Animal Rescue (for whom the couple fostered Storie), all the puppies found new loving homes. We are so happy people like Chris and Mariesa exist in this world. We need more dog lovers like them!
