Documented by Veterinarian Matt Schuessler, one of their success stories features a formerly-pregnant dog named Gracie, who was rescued from death row and housed at Vet Ranch in order to give birth in a safer environment.
The Texas-based nonprofit organization took great care of Gracie in the many weeks leading up to her delivery, with Dr. Schuessler administering frequent check-ups and conducting X-rays to ensure that she was healthy enough. One of Gracie’s X-rays even revealed her litter to consist of 11 to 12 puppies! Gracie successfully gave birth to 12 healthy pups later on.
