A stray mother dog decided to put her life on the line to protect her puppies. With temperatures plummeting below zero and heavy snowfall, Hera frightened for the safety of her offspring, so she put her faith in some strangers, believing that they would be nice and assist her and her puppies.
Hera’s story, thankfully, has a good ending.
Hera gave birth to a litter of three puppies in a drainage pipe outside a Serbian hamlet without a roof over her head. Things weren’t ideal, but at least they were protected from the wind, and the devoted mother was able to feed herself by scratching nearby. However, the winter soon overtook Hera and her children, making it difficult for them to stay there. She didn’t have a choice, unfortunately.
When everything seemed to be Iơst for the tiny puppies and their mother, the odds turned into their favor. After a concerned citizen called him to let him know about Hera’s situation, Milan from Dog Rescue Shelter Mladenovac, rushed to savе them.
Hera was surprised to find herself happy than ever when she saw Milan, and she even ran out the pipe to greet him and inform him of her defenseless children. The puppies were about 4-weeks-old and appeared to be in good health, but rescuing them proved far more difficult than anyone had anticipated.
Even having their mother at the end of the line to reassure them that everything is fine, the puppies had never been near a human before, making them difficult to approach.
Milan, on the other hand, did not drive all the way there only to abandon them. He tried for hours in the freezing cold to get them out, and with the help of a broom, he eventually succeeded.
