When This Pregnant Dog Was Going To Be Put Down, A Brave Clinic Stepped Up.
This is the story of Gracie! A one-eyed mommy-to-be who was pregnant with 12 (wow!) puppies. Her previous owner decided that they could not care for her and the puppies that were on the way. They decided to euthanize her instead of trying to find homes for all of the puppies.
That is when Dr. Matt stepped in and took Gracie into his clinic to care for her until the puppies arrived. The clinic monitored her every day and wanted to make sure that the puppies came out happy and healthy! They had planned to keep her under 24 hour watch until the puppies arrived, but she had them overnight in her cage without showing any signs that she was going into labor.
Dr. Matt took her to his home and showed his young children the litter of puppies – and they reacted so adorably! “Do we get to keep them forever?!” His daughter asked excitedly. I know I would have said the exact same thing if my parents had ever brought home 12 newborn puppies.
They are just too cute! When their little eyes finally opened, they were so excited to see the world! Even though two of the puppies had complications in their first few days, all of the puppies survived and are well on their way to finding new homes! Gracie and one of her puppies was adopted through the clinic – they will indeed be able to be together forever!
My favorite parts are the slow motion footage of the puppies playing at the end of the video! Leaping and stumbling through the grass, who doesn’t love some really adorable puppy footage?
