Abandoned in the Wilderness: A Brave Canine Struggles to Protect Her Family Alone, Searching for Food and Water.

Nursing Dog Mom Runs Up To A Woman Trying To Get Help For Her Babies

For Ashley Boggs, a long-time dog rescuer, saving dogs is a life mission. One day, she was driving down a forest road in Puerto Rico when she spotted a helpless, brown canine stopping cars and begging for help.

Unlike other strays that usually hide in the woods or stroll down a busy road without any agenda, this particular canine was acting differently – like she was desperately trying to tell Boggs something!

Momma Dog Begging For One Thing Only

When Ashley got out of the car, she realized that the dog who stopped her was a nursing mom who was desperate to find help for her newborn puppies. Left in the woods with no food and water – this tiny canine was fending for her family all by herself.

Fortunately, Boggs, who works for Miracles for Satos Rescue, from New York, arrived at the last minute to be their hero!

Aside from the mom dog, who was later named Goji, there were two other pups hiding in the secluded area.

All three were friendly right off the bat, and Boggs had no problem securing them in her car. However, there were more puppy cries coming from the wooded area, and she knew that she had to go back to investigate a little more.

At last, Boggs found four more puppies who were hiding near the box they were dumped in. This giant-hearted volunteer worked tirelessly until she managed to secure all seven of them in the back of her car.

The Berry Family Saved On Time

When she finally drove them to the facility, Boggs and the rest of the team made sure this stray family got all the care they needed. They were all hungry and needed a fresh, new start, and that’s exactly what they got!

Miracles for Satos Rescue is an organization that saves and transports dogs from Puerto Rico to New York, and helps them find a forever home – and the puppies were very lucky to have Boggs find them!

They all went to a foster home where they started socializing with other dogs and learning basic puppy manners.

Goji, the mom, had no trouble adapting to new circumstances, as she was just the most affectionate canine in the world!

“She is the absolute best dog. She loves every dog and person that she meets. She loves rubs and cuddles and will even do tricks for treats,” the MFSR team wrote on their Facebook page.

The rest of the puppies were named Raspberry, Blueberry, Gooseberry, Cloudberry, Blackberry, and Strawberry.

“We named them after berries because we picked them from the bushes,” said the MFSR team.

A New Start Ahead

Goji was finally in a place where she didn’t need to worry about her family being safe anymore. Thanks to her caregivers, she let down her guard and became the sweetest girl whose only agenda was to bring joy to everyone she meets.

“She loves going for walks but her favorite place in the world is on her favorite person’s lap. GOJI is definitely a volunteer favorite because she is an absolute sweet heart. She brings joy to the world everyday,” the MFSR wrote.

Not too long after their rescue, the Berry family found their furever families and they couldn’t be happier!

Once abandoned and left at the mercy of the wilderness, these pawdorable furballs are now enjoying life in their new homes!

Stormy, the German Shepherd dog mom hiding under a construction site in Phoenix, Arizona, beats all the odds!

This brave doggo was given less than 25% of a chance of survival after eating nothing but rocks and food wrappers to survive, but her love for her puppies was strong enough to get her through!

This is her inspiring story!

Stormy Was Found Weak, Emaciated, And With Debris Embedded In Her Fur

It was a muggy day following a well-known monsoon in Arizona, when a team of workers came to their construction site to check on the damage.

When they arrived at the spot, they found a German Shepherd dog with her newborn babies under a construction pallet.

They got in contact with Saving Paws Rescue, from Glendale, Arizona, who immediately came to the rescue!

Trisha Houlihan, the founder of the rescue, and her colleague, Charis, loaded the van with all the necessary supplies, not knowing that the rescue itself would be extremely difficult.

Getting Stormy Out Was Not A Walk In The Park

At the time of the rescue, there was no certified forklift operator on the site, which is why it was impossible to lift the pallet up. The only choice Trisha and Charis had was to try to dig her out with their bare hands.

About twenty minutes later, they somehow managed to pull her out, as Stormy was too afraid to be coaxed out with food. Even though she didn’t growl or try to bite them, she was evidently terrified, and on top of all that – she was in really bad condition.

Emaciated, weak, and with pieces of debris and wire in her fur, Stormy needed immediate vet intervention.

After they pulled her out, Trisha and Charis managed to rescue three puppies alongside her. Unfortunately, the hole was too dark and deep, so they didn’t know if there were any more puppies left in there.

The day after, they found out that one of the workers saved one of the puppies himself, and that two more were found alive in the hole!

A total of six puppies were saved and safely transported to the facility where they were further directed to their foster home, together with their mom.

A Long Road To Recovery

This brave girl got the nicest foster family in the world! Susan Pratt and her husband took her in and provided her with endless love and all the care she needed.

However, her recovery process wasn’t smooth, as this GSD girl had a series of health issues that needed to be dealt with. Her stool was full of debris, she was still too weak, and she was constantly bleeding.

After a thorough examination at Desert Hills Animal Clinic, in Phoenix, Arizona, Stormy was diagnosed with a subinvoluted uterus, meaning that it was not contracting back to normal size, and this beautiful doggo mom was in danger of bleeding to death.

On top of all that, she was diagnosed with heartworm disease, which is why the vets couldn’t spay her, as it would’ve been extremely dangerous.

She was subjected to surgery and sent back home for recovery, but her condition worsened shortly after that. She was readmitted to the hospital with a 107-degree body temperature and pneumonia.

This was a complication-from surgery, which is why she was immediately put on antibiotics.

At the same time, she was getting her ivermectin treatment for heartworms, which is why she wasn’t allowed to feed her puppies. She was wearing a T-shirt so she could stay close to her puppies without feeding them.

Stormy – A Hero Award Winner

After months of constant fighting with heartworms, Stormy finally did it! She was tested negative after her last treatment, which was a huge relief to everyone! She was finally ready to go to a furever home, and her puppies were big and strong enough to find their own homes, too.

Her inspiring story made headlines, after which, she was awarded with the Animal Survivor Hero award by Friends of Animal Care & Control.
