Mother Dog Risks Own Life to Save Its Puppies From Flooding

There have been reoccurring floods in India over the past few months that have killed over 70 people in the area. However, this dog was not going to allow her puppies to die in these dangerous floodwaters.
As her puppies sat upon a mound of debris amongst the flood, the brave dog’s motherly instincts kicked in and she knew she had to save her babies. She swam across the water picking up one of the puppies in her mouth and brought it back across to the other side to safety. Witnesses say she continued to do the same with all three puppies. How amazing is that?

Another video was taken by an animal shelter in Israel. Apparently, mama dog and her babies were hiding out under the floor of a military base when severe weather caused their home to flood. Tragically, all twelve puppies were trapped! Within minutes, the mother dog sprung into action, attracting the attention of the soldiers nearby. Here we see her brazenly dash in and out of the watery death trap, risking it all to rescue her babies.

Thanks to mom’s quick thinking she managed to rescue seven of the puppies. Sadly, the other five didn’t make it.

Unfortunately, situations like these are very common for stray pups. Luckily, you can help ease the plight of homeless animals by always choosing to adopt a pet rather than shopping for one. If you’re not looking to add a four-legged friend to your family, you can help by making a donation to your local shelter or volunteering to help them carry out life-saving work.
