There are around 70 million stray animals living in the United States. While this number is incredibly large, there are many organizations who are working to help save these animals, one at a time. One such organization, Hope for Paws, specializes in the rescue of stray dogs in the U.S. This video features the incredible rescue of a Pit Bull who had just given birth. Pit Bulls are wrongly considered “aggressive” and “dangerous” dog breeds, but in reality they are incredibly loyal and caring dogs.
Like any stray dog, who has never known the kindness of humans, this Pit Bull mother was rather nervous at first. To safely capture the dog, the rescuers had to set up a temporary fence. The compassionate neighbors who had called Hope for Paws sprung at the chance to help out and hold the fence in place. In no time at all, the mother and her babies were in the care of their rescuers and brought back the Veterinary Care Center. After a good bath, the pups were all given names. The mother was named Lexus and her four babies were christened, Cooper, Beamer, Mercedes, and Prius.
