Dory was kept on a four-foot chain and bred repeatedly for most of her life. When animal control heard about the situation, they began working with the family to make things right. That’s when the family decided they wanted out.
Dory has given birth to multiple litters while on a chain. Many of the puppies did not survive.
After being confronted by animal control, her family decided that they no longer wanted the pregnant dog.
Dory was surrendered to Clewiston Animal Control, but the public shelter was overcrowded. Rescuers worried that she may not make it out alive.
But a local foster mom took Dory in and prepared for the babies to arrive. Here they come!
Little by little, the puppies came into the world…
After several hours, she’d given birth to eight puppies: five boys and three girls.
Mom and her puppies are totally healthy and doing well! The pups will be named after characters from Finding Nemo and Finding Dory. 🙂
It would be Dory’s last pregnancy ever. The dog can now rest knowing she’ll never be used for breeding again. But she is one amazing mother!
Dory would go on to be spayed and put up for adoption along with her puppies. Forever homes for them all! 🙂
