Shelter Puppy Comforts Her Sister With A Hug After Being Rescued

A call came in last weekend to the Animal Charity of Ohio, a nonprofit humane group, requesting assistance for a family of dogs. When Jane MacMurchy, the nonprofit’s operations director, and a humane agent arrived to the location, they discovered a mother and her two pups living in filth.

The owners were clearly not caring for the dogs, and the small family had learnt to rely totally on one another.

“They were in appalling situations,” MacMurchy told The Dodo. “There was maybe 6 to 8 inches of garbage in a makeshift enclosure, and [the pups] were entirely unsocialized.”

The owners handed up the 5-month-old puppies, Peaches and Layla, as well as their 7-year-old mother, Lady, to the rescuers, who hurried the dogs to the shelter.
