Dogs who have recently been dropped off at shelters very rarely know what to expect and just like any living creature that is in a tense and unpredictable situation, they become frightened. It is an understandable reaction to an adverse situation and the mother dog in this clip was experiencing this scenario firsthand.
She was dropped off at California’s Marin Humane Society, without a clue as to how she got there. When we first meet her, she is sitting in the corner of the shelter, with her ears perked up nice and high. She clearly does not trust anyone yet and who can’t relate to the feeling of being on unfamiliar territory, not knowing who is your friend and who is your enemy?
When the mother dog was initially dropped off, the humane society staff came to a very interesting realization: she had just given birth. Seeing this mother get separated from her babies before they had even been given a chance to bond definitely affected their spirit and they decided to help Mama the only way that they knew how.
They got her former owner on the phone and discussed the particulars of the situation. Somehow, someway, they convinced the dog’s former owner to surrender her pups, as well. Seeing the moment where Mama’s facial expression changes and her apprehension melts away is truly priceless and you just might catch yourself wiping away a tear or two (or three).
Any parent in the audience who has ever experienced any form of separation from their child can relate to that magic moment when you are reunited with your babies. This mother went from being down and out, down on her luck and completely depressed to jubilant in a matter of moments. It’s a testament to the awesome power of love.
Once she is able to get a good look at her puppies, she instantly knows that they are her children. If you’d like to find out more about this amazingly heart warming reunion, then you’ll want to watch this entire clip. Chances are, you have not seen anything like this in a very long time.
This just may be one of the best surprises we’ve ever had the chance to witness. Don’t be stingy, be sure to share this video with your friends and loved ones, as they are going to appreciate seeing this touching moments for themselves. Spread the love!
