It’s very unfortunate and heartbreaking when dogs are abandoned by their owners, especially when they have more to care for than themselves.
Earlier this year, people in Fowler, California, began reporting sightings of a stray dog that appeared to be pregnant. According to Pinky Paws ResQ, she “was dumped in the country for who knows how long.” After being contacted by a number of witnesses who’d seen the stray, volunteers from the animal rescue organization started keeping an eye out and eventually caught the dog they came to call Betty Boop.
The woman who rescued her knew that the dog had recently given birth and worried about the puppies’ well-being. Betty Boop must have been concerned too, because she escaped the first time she was caught. After grabbing her for the second time, the woman took her outside and played sounds of crying puppies on her phone, hoping the dog would take her to her babies.
Shortly after hearing the sounds, Betty Boop led the woman on a two-mile walk. Whenever they paused for a break, she wouldn’t stop whining.
They eventually reached an abandoned farmhouse where the dog went inside and straight to a hole in the floor.
