A dog named Hope was found on the street.
She recently gave birth and spent a lot of time with puppies, unable to get her own food.
Feeding six cubs took a lot of strength from her, the dog became very thin and could hardly stand on her paws.
Local residents, taking pity on the young mother, called the animal welfare center.
The activists who arrived at the scene faced one of the saddest cases in their practice.
Hope was half her weight, had difficulty walking, and hopefully looked people straight in the eye.
Seeing the volunteers, she began to bring her puppies in her teeth one by one.
Here the cruel truth was revealed: there were 10 of them, but four had already died, and their mother continued to warm them with her body.
The staff of the center took the family to the shelter and began to look for foster families for the puppies.
Teddy was the first to be adopted.
This baby now lives in excellent conditions in the house of a woman who just adores him.
Very soon they managed to find the owners for Candy and Tobby.
Lola waited for her turn at the shelter for 7 months, but finally foreigners took her away and took her abroad, where she now lives next to another pet, the dog Alex.
Another dog – Coco – is still waiting to be taken from the shelter, this should happen very soon.
The last puppy Max, unfortunately, left this world after his four brothers and sisters, unable to cope with a stomach infection.
The mother of the family – Hope – has come a long way to restore health. The dog has recently been spayed.
Volunteers do not lose hope of finding her a permanent home, because a dog that has survived so many trials deserves a life of love and care.
