A pregnant dog named Milo was picked up on the streets of Phoenix, USA, in a desperate condition. Milo was lucky enough to be in the good hands of the staff at Sunshine Dog Rescue. She was weak and emaciated, and when it came time for her to give birth, volunteers were preparing for the worst.
Unfortunately, none of the pups survived. After giving birth, mommy was restlessly looking for her puppies, not understanding why they weren’t near her. Milo had very strong maternal instincts. Seeing this, her caretaker named Anita couldn’t stand to be quiet. She decided to look up little puppies that might be in need of a mother.
Anita couldn’t find any ads with puppies, but she did find a lot of kittens who were without a mother. Then she decided – why not give it a try? She took three kittens who needed their mother’s milk and care and introduced them to Milo.
She was worried about how the dog would react, but her worries were in vain – when she heard the kittens squeak, the dog rushed to them. She was very gentle and careful with them – licking, sniffing, and giving her love. Later the kittens began to drink her milk.
The entire shelter team was happy. Milo had babies that she took care of, and the kittens found a loving and attentive mother. Milo developed a special bond with one of the kittens. She wouldn’t take her eyes off him. If he crawled away from the cot, she would immediately go and bring him back. She didn’t neglect the other kittens, either.
One family was interested in Milo, and when they found out how close she was to one of the kittens, they decided to take both the dog and the kitten! That’s how Milo and one of her babies found a loving home.
The other two kittens also found owners, and now they all live happily in love and care. At one time none of the shelter staff could have imagined such a happy outcome! Thank you to the kind people who gave these kittens and mom-dog a new life!
