After being rescued, a shelter puppy comforts her sister with a hug

Must Read

A call came in last weekend to Animal Charity of Ohio, a non-profit and humane group, requesting assistance for a family of dogs.

When Jane MacMurchy, the non-profit society’s director of operations, and an aid worker arrived at the home, they discovered a mother and her two puppies living in a filthy environment.

The owners clearly did not care for the dogs, and the small family had learnt to rely only on one another.

“They lived in terrible conditions,” MacMurchy eplained The Dodo. “It was a good 6 to 8 centimeters of rubble in a makeshift pen, and [os cachorrinhos] They were completely desocialized.”

The owners handed over the 5-month-old puppies, Peaches and Layla, as well as their 7-year-old mother, Lady, to the rescuers, who took the dogs to the shelter right away.

The puppies lacked confidence and had no idea what to do when their mother wasn’t there to show them around after being visited by a vet who said the canines were generally healthy.

Peaches and Layla hugging each other for comfort in the shelter broke MacMurchy’s heart.

MacMurchy explained, “We were doing the vaccinations and the wellness check, and Mom finished first.” 

“We were walking her out into our intake area, and the puppies, without mom, latched on to each other because they were so scared.”

The small family is staying together at the shelter, where they are learning about safety.

“We give them time multiple times a day to just relax and get some TLC in a quiet room with a staff member so they can learn how to trust,” MacMurchy added.

“They do much better when their mother is around, so we work with all three together, as well as individually. It’s a slow process, but they are learning how to be confident on their own.”

The lady is already confident on her own just a few days after her rescue, looking forward to meeting new people and going for walks.

The socialization procedure for your two puppies, on the other hand, will take a little longer.

“[Lady] is a tail-wagging, wiggle-butt little love, who is just happy to receive affection,” MacMurchy added.

“The puppies are not quite there yet. They are accepting of love and accepting of affection, they are wiggly and happy when they’re together and they’re leaning on each other for their confidence.”

“They are extremely dependent on each other,” MacMurchy said.

The puppies will go home together when Peaches and Layla are ready for adoption. They will receive hugs not just from one other, but also from a caring family.
