When a Good Samaritan came across a lactating pit bull wandering the streets of Christchurch, New Zealand, he knew that he needed to help.
The poor dog was dragging a rope and a heavy padlock behind her. The kind stranger assumed that she’d just given birth and that her puppies were nearby. However, the litter was nowhere to be found and the heartbroken mother dog had to spend the night in the pound, missing her pups like crazy.
The day after, a volunteer of the Christchurch Bull Breed Rescue managed to track down the house that the pit bull came from. The volunteer convinced the homeowner to sign their dogs over to the rescue organization and the very next day, the mother dog — who they named Missy — had the most heartwarming reunion with her babies.
Thank you to the men and women who dedicate their lives to saving animals in need.
