Stray Rescue of St. Louis spotted a stray, dirty white mama dog living on the side of the road. They knew she had recently given birth because she was engorged with milk and roaming and looking for food.
They were following her when they heard a shrill cry.
Investigating, they discovered one of her puppies had fallen into a hole and was trapped. Rescuers immediately scooped the puppy out and brought her to their car.
They headed into the woods and that’s when they spotted several other puppies running around in the underbrush that needed saving.
When it finally came time to rescue the mom, something else happened. Another mama?
But the mama dog didn’t make it easy, as she kept on avoiding their traps.
