Luckily, Melanie was available! She came to the shelter with a litter of pups, and hers had just been removed... but she still had milk!
We dashed over to the shelter and brought home Melanie, who was the perfect surrogate mommy to that batch of puppies. She was tender and gentle with them, even though they were not her own and did not resemble her in any way.
Today, Melanie was rewarded for her kindness and gentle nature. A very special family chose her to become part of their family. A very happy ending for Melanie!
