I had a wonderful surprise today when I went to Aanifeira. Ana Rita and her husband, who had taken Bia and her puppies in, brought the new family into the Clinic for a check-up. (Read Bia and her puppies rescue story here)
Bia walked boldly into the reception area of the clinic looking absolutely beautiful. Right behind her was Ana Rita holding a large padded bed with the three puppies. It had been Ana Rita who had found the three day-old puppies in the trash can the day before I had found Bia!
What a difference – this little family had really thrived during these past three weeks. Bia showed huge signs of contentment although giving short growls if any other dog ventured too close to her babies. Her three little pups were looking wonderful, had grown immensely and our only concern now was that they would be much larger dogs in size than she is.
Even better news was that Ana Rita and her husband had absolutely fallen in love with Bia and decided to officially adopt her to keep their other little dog company. They were trying to find homes for the three puppies who would remain with Bia for at least a few more weeks until they could be weaned.
