The stray dog used her maternal instinct in order to rescue her kittens from freezing cold
On the way to home, a lady noticed something moving near the road. To make sure it was nothing serious, the woman stopped. It was fortunate since her intervention proved to be truly providential. At first sight, she thought it was a stray dog trembling from fright. However, when the woman managed to get closer to the dog to take it with her back to the car, she realized the real reason why the animal was outside on such a cold and frosty night.
As a matter of fact, that little dog, curled up on the edge of a snow-covered road, was not alone! The woman discovered that the animal was trying to protect her little kittens from freezing cold․
Amazing! That sweet little dog evidently was not thinking of herself but of a litter of kittens. She had drawn on her strong maternal instinct to protect the little ones the best she could. The woman could not help transporting them by her car to the Pet and Wildlife Rescue animal shelter. They saved them from almost certain death from the freezing cold. But by now, between the little dog and those kittens, a very strong bond had already been created.
For the volunteers at the shelter, the circumstances appeared rather clear: the little female dog had saved the lives of those poor kittens and, now, the animals seemed inseparable.
“If it hadn’t been for the presence of this little dog, probably the kittens would have not been able to survive, considering how cold it was last night,” commented one of the refuge volunteers.
The kittens are all well now and doctors will soon vaccinate them. And meanwhile, the sweet little stray dog that saved them insists on overseeing their progress by visiting them regularly every day – just like a proud mother.
If no owner shows up to claim them, the kittens and also the dog, herself will be available for adoption.
This is certainly a story that warms the heart.
