When a rescuer was told sad news about a pregnant dog, he didn’t hesitate to make the mother-to-be a promise with his dying breath. What happened next reaches the soul.
Dogs are extremely fascinating beings who are always willing to offer their love unconditionally, especially when it comes to their little babies for whom they could give their lives.
Unfortunately, this is what happened to Gaia, a pregnant dog who was abandoned to her fate on the streets of California.
Despite everything, the beautiful dog never gave up and struggled every day to provide a little food for the defenseless beings that were growing inside her.
The brave mother gave her all to save her little ones until the end
Along the way, Gaia met two kind women who cared for her during the last three months of her pregnancy.
Although they wanted to give her a home, the stray dog was so reluctant to trust humans again, that she preferred to take care of her children alone.
However, the concerned women went to the Bill Foundation so that the dog could have all the necessary help when giving birth to her puppies. Also, the foundation turned to Hope For Paws so that the dog and the newborns could have a home.
That is how a rescuer, named Eldad Hagar, arrived at the place of the expected birth in search of the dog and the puppies.
However, he was distraught when he found only the three babies, no trace of the mother.
“I kept looking back to make sure the mother didn’t run away to protect her cubs,” Eldad said.
Shortly after, a stranger approached the rescuer and informed him of the terrible news: the dog had been run over and was lying on the side of the road.
Eldad immediately went to where the almost lifeless body of the dog was found and, moved by the event, with his last breath he made the most important promise of his life:
“I’m sorry they did this to you. I promise I will save your babies.”
Quickly, the man returned to where the puppies were to fulfill his promise, but the babies got scared and hid in a big hole.
To lure them out of hiding, Eldad used food to get their attention and this worked for one of the puppies who was christened Sydney.
Although the man already had one of the pups with him, Sydney’s loud cries caused her brothers to go further into the hole and Eldad could not reach them.
“At that point, the other two pups were really scared and didn’t come out of the hole for two hours,” Eldad said.
The man was afraid that the cubs would continue to go deeper into the hole and that it would be impossible to get them out. So in the midst of his desperation, he carried the inert body of her mother so that the babies would come closer.
Thus he managed to rescue the beautiful Matilda, but he still had to rescue a third baby.
After four long hours of waiting, the third puppy finally decided to come out, she was much harder to catch than her siblings, and she was named Gabriella.
When the three puppies were reunited, the rescuer took them to the shelter where in a matter of days they found a new family that will give them all the love that Gaia would have wanted.
This sad event reminds us of the importance of being much more compassionate towards the poor stray animals.
Abandoning them to their fate is a great evil, but even in a state as delicate as a pregnancy. Gia was a great mother, and from the other side of the rainbow she will be proud to have done so much for her little ones.
