A very unfortunate event left one dog mother without her litter of seven puppies.
The barn where the dogs stayed and which belonged to Jessica Woodruff caught on fire one night. One of the heat lamps that was supposed to keep the animals warm broke down and the fire spread with great speed and intensity. Daisy, the dog, was desperate to save her babies, and she even tried getting inside the burning barn, but everything happened very quickly and nothing could be done.
Despite the puppies, four goats and a pig were killed.
Over the next few days after the accident, Daisy was completely heartbroken. She avoided her humans and the rest of the animals at the farm. All she did was looking for her puppies. Whenever she would go into the destroyed barn and realize the little ones weren’t there, Daisy would start whining and crying.
Jessica knew she had to do something for her dog, otherwise, she could lose her too.
Luckily, Jessica’s sister came up with an interesting idea. She posted on her Facebook page how they were looking for newborn puppies whose mother left so that they could foster them and pair them with the grieving mother. At the same time, another woman was looking for a mother dog who would help a litter of eight puppies survive after their mom passed away.
The tragedies these two families suffered brought them together in an unexpected manner.
Daisy was soon introduced with the puppies and her maternal instinct kicked in right away.
In the weeks that followed, Daisy was the puppies’ mother. She took awesome care of them and wasn’t sad any longer.
When the little guys were a bit grown, they were reunited with their owner. Well, except for the smallest one who stayed with Daisy and Jessica and was named Benji.
This whole story and the video below are way too cute and touching not to be seen.
