Dog Helps Rescuers Find Her Puppies

A woman named Brooke Rapozo was painting her office walls on a Sunday afternoon when an urgent phone call came in. It was a woman who had found a stray pit bull wandering the streets of Lemoore, California. The dog had been spotted for several days and not only was the dog a stray, but she appeared to be nursing and there were no puppies in sight. So Brooke, who works for Kings SPCA Halfway Home, set down her paintbrush and hopped in her car to help the dog. When she arrived to the area, she found the one year old dog sitting on her rescuer’s lap and enjoying the attention. The dog, named Darla, was full of milk and they needed her help to find the puppies. So, Brooke played a video of puppies crying for the dog, which immediately jumped up at the sound and began to walk.

She followed the dog for a while until they reached a large pile of branches near the side of a busy road. They realized it was actually a burn pile and they needed to act quickly to locate and save the little puppies inside. Brooke jumped into the pile and began to search around for the puppies. Initially, she found six puppies, but upon further inspection she found four more. There were ten total puppies and they looked to be very young: their umbilical cords had just fallen off their bodies. Brook suspects Darla the pit bull was dumped in the area because she was so far along in her pregnancy.

So, she loaded Darla and all ten of her puppies into the car and the dog could finally rest: she let out a big sigh and closed her eyes to rest. She was safe, finally, and knew that it was going to get better from here.
