One day, a man posted a status on Facebook about giving away a mother dog and her litter of nine puppies.
The mother dog was four years old, and this was her third litter of puppies…but the first litter to actually survive.
The local community responded to the man’s post and worked hard to adopt and save all of the dogs! Their first action was to call the Faithful Friends Animal Sanctuary as well as Mr. Bones & Co.
They believed the dog, Nana, put her litter of puppies in a hole dug in the dirt, in order to keep them safe and comfortable.
The Faithful Friends Animal Sanctuary brought in the puppies and mother. The puppies were steadily weaned so that they could head to Mr. Bones & Co. in New York City.
Because of how much loss Nana has experienced, she was very protective of her little pups. In order to make the entire family feel safe, all of the staff members worked to do everything they could!
Of course, the staff decided to name the puppies. The theme choice? Peter Pan. The puppies were named: Peter Pan, Tinkerbell, Tiger Lily, Wendy, John, Cubby, Liza, and Jane.
The puppies have grown much older…
And took a journey to New Jersey in order to head to Pilots N Paws, where Mr. Bones & Co. would be retrieving them and driving them to New York.
The nine puppies were driven to their new foster homes. Nana rode in the car with them, and steadily became very tired. For the first time in a long time, she was able to relax and feel safe.
All ten dogs are enjoying life in their new homes! Nana’s foster family is interested in adopting her. The hectic journey was all worthwhile.
For those interested, Bones & Co. is holding an annual adoption event on September 24th!
