Ashley Boggs had been driving down a highway in Puerto Rico when she came to a blockage in the road. The cars in front of her were halting and restarting. As she got closer, she saw a dog with a couple puppies behind her, trying to draw attention to their peril.
Boggs, who happens to work for Miracles for Satos Rescue, realized that the mama dog was nursing, so she followed her, knowing that there were likely more in the litter. As Boggs entered the lush green forested area to the side of the road, she was directed by yelps, to find four more little ones who had been dumped from a crate.
The video here shows the miraculous rescue of the mother dog and her six offspring. It might bring tears to your eyes.
“I was surprised that there were so many,” Boggs said. “I was also sad because I knew that they wouldn’t have survived if I hadn’t found them. There was no food or water left, and they were in a very secluded area. It is joyful and sorrowful all at the same time. They were just so adorable.”
“Goji,” as the mama dog was named, expressed her gratitude to Boggs with snuggles and kisses. “The mom is such an angel. She is very loving and enjoys it when people come in and pet her. The puppies are extremely playful. They love to play with the volunteers and tug on the shoe laces.”
Two of the little ones have already been adopted. Boggs is confident that all, including Goji, will find permanent homes.
