It’s impossible not to like their relationship!
When visiting an animal shelter, you can take home a variety of creatures. Most people are drawn to the younger, more well-known breeds, but this isn’t true for everyone!
Senior dogs and dogs with disabilities have the exact needs of normal canines.
Not everyone’s living situation allows them to adopt a dog with special needs. Still, the possibilities are unlimited for the rare individual with a huge heart who goes into a shelter explicitly looking to adopt a dog with special needs.
At the shelter, one man knew he wanted to adopt a mama-dog-in-waiting.
People don’t want to deal with a litter of puppies shortly after bringing their new dog home. Thus pregnant dogs are tough to find homes for. While most individuals would find this inconvenient, it was exactly what Joshua Feeney desired.
Josh thought it would be “cute” to bring in a pregnant puppy!
When the sweet girl was discovered homeless at his friend’s cabin, he knew it was meant to be. She had never been inside a house before and quickly adjusted to life at home. She was evident in her trust for Josh and knew she was protected entirely by him. He gave her the name Kaia once she was established.
Since she was so pregnant, Josh carried her nearly everywhere!
He purchased her a whelping tub (a large pool with blankets inside) and would come home from work to sit in it with her! Josh did his best to meet all of her wants as she grew closer to the “big event.”
She was beginning to act as if she was about to give birth!
When Josh began to hear some strange noises emanating from her big ol’ belly, he knew it was getting near to the time! She started giving birth after a week. She began with one puppy and continued to produce one per hour throughout the night!
She ended up with six healthy puppies.
Josh could tell this wasn’t her first time because she took care of things quickly. Even though one baby did not survive the delivery procedure, they still had a healthy litter of six pups to care for!
Josh brought her food and water while she fed and cared for the litter.
She began to move about a lot more as the puppies grew older. The puppies were also able to move once she was. They liked chasing her around the house, demanding more food. She began to treat her puppies less like puppies and more like pals at 9-10 weeks.
Mama and the puppies would run around in the yard, having the time of their lives!
It was soon time to find homes for all of the dogs. They had been in the house for about 16 weeks, and it was time for mama to take a break. The puppies eventually departed the house, leaving only Josh and Kaia! It’s difficult, as it is for all parents, to say goodbye to their children, but it’s essential. It was all thanks to Josh, who chose to take in a dog who needed a little extra care!
