A rescue canine in Phoenix, Arizona, who recently lost her litter of pups, is giving all her attention to three motherless kittens.
The Rescue staffers watched over an Australian shepherd mix with her three puppies die after she went into premature labor last month.
Going into untimely labor gave her babies no chance of living outside of her womb. While my heart hurts to know that the puppies never got to run and play, their natures are sad for Georgia. She is searching for her babies, and it is heartbreaking to watch.
However, when the shelter took in three newborn kittens just days later, the grieving dog treated them like they were her own. She never hesitated.
The rescue reports she LOVES them. In the beginning, they bottle-feed two, and the other one took to latching on. Sadly, one of the kitties died, but Georgia concentrated on the healthy ones. A short time later, the rescue added another kitty, named Goober, to the happy clan. They all are gaining weight (now weigh 7-8 ounces each) and seem very content with mama,
The rescue shared a video of Georgia with her fur babies on its Facebook page :
Graffiti, being the smallest, hasn’t mastered jumping out of the pool.
Because Georgia lost her pups early, she never made a lot of milk, so the kittens did not get their nourishment from her and were bottle-fed, according to the rescue’s Executive Director. They have all opened their eyes, gained weight, and Georgia loves tending to them. She cleans them, and what’s cute right now is they’re starting to play,” she said, adding that Georgia was accepting and loving” of her adopted family. The bond is strong. It’s something to see. She protects those little kittens just as if they were her babies.
