The puppy, who was too young and too attached to his mother to understand what had happened, clung to his mother even though she had died.When the little family was discovered, the one puppy was still nestling into Mama, trying to wake her up.He had no intention of abandoning his mother, whom he adored.
When the animal rescuers tried to separate the puppy from his mother, he cried repeatedly.The caring humans recognized the importance of handling this special puppy with caution.They decided to give the mama dog a fitting send-off.They threw a blanket over her and covered her with flower petals.They allowed the puppy to say one last goodbye before her body was cremated.
The pup, who was now adored by his rescuers, stood by as his mother passed away.His new human friends tried to explain to him that Mama was going to a special place and that they would be reunited one day.It would take time, but the puppy would recover emotionally.
The veterinarian and his team focused on keeping all three puppies as healthy as possible.They required vaccinations as well as flea and parasite treatment.All of the puppies were taken to a nearby shelter after receiving a clean bill of health.
The rescuers are devoted to all three puppies, but their attention is clearly drawn to one in particular and his emotional well-being.During this difficult time, he will require constant comfort.They will be available for adoption as soon as they are old enough.Fortunately, there are families who want to adopt all three dogs.
