A mother can do incredible things when it comes to protecting her children, even in the animal world. After a street dog and her six hungry puppies were found in the snow, it turned out that the puppies were already three weeks old. How the mamahood managed to keep her little ones alive in the bitter cold is a mystery.
Dog Snowbelle was found with the six small puppies in the snow near Red Lake, in the American state of Minnesota. A family happened to bump into the dogs during a walk in the woods. The snow had melted around the four-legged friend and her little ones because the family had been close together to stay as warm as possible. The local family brought the animals by car to the Red Lake Rosie’s Rescue animal organization.
Their employees discovered that Snowbelle was so starving that she no longer produced milk. So it seems that the rescue of the dogs did not come a moment too late. After a few days of warmth in the shelter and strengthened by healthy food, Snowbelle was able to give her puppies milk again.
“This story shows how important shelter and food for animals is in our harsh winters,” it sounds at Red Lake Rosie’s Rescue. “We have no idea how Snowbelle and her pups survived this.”
Meanwhile, several puppies have already found a warm home. And Snowbelle, who is lovingly cared for by a host family, is usually adopted quickly.
