New-Mom Introduces Newborn To Her Pet, Dog Shows Mom Her 1st Rookie Mistake

Dogs are known to have an uncanny ability to sense when a new baby has arrived. Recent studies show that dogs can smell when a newborn is related to their human pack leader. This may be because dogs preferentially form bonds with people in charge of looking after them. Dogs naturally form attachments to the new baby, who they see as in higher position.

The video in this article shows the HILARIOUS lengths babies’ puppies will go to ensure they are safe. Dogs are known for being loyal, but there is no limit to their love for human babies!

This type of nurturing is expected from a parent, but it can be hard to see, when the only caregiving has only arms. Especially since this one dog lacks the digits to do most tasks, yet has figured out how to accomplish something so darn adorable— and is taking care of the tiny baby she already adores.

The story of two vulnerable, sweet puppies begins with them huddled together for comfort.

A Walking Skeleton, She Roamed The Streets & Hung Her Head In Shame

This poor dog was a victim of homelessness and neglect. Covered in mange and skin impervious to the world, she looked like she could die at any moment for all we know.

She was immediately taken to see doctors, where she realized they were there to help her. After this sudden realization, her whole demeanor changed. She no longer felt shame or alone.

After a medical diagnosis, the doctor would prescribe a treatment plan. First and foremost, she needed to get sufficient rest and a high-calorie diet.

What must have felt like the greatest gift to the starving dog was when she was finally able to eat. And there were days when she would eat two or three bowls of food! She said that it longed long time in her life when she had plenty of food.

Despite some anecdotal evidence that some home remedies may treat mange, the best way to treat this skin disease is with medicated baths and antibiotics.

All The Animals Were Adopted One By One ‘Til He Was The Only One Who Remained

Capone is a senior Pit Bull. He has been waiting for a forever home. His shelter mates have all found homes, but Capone was either ignored or put back in his kennel after a brief meeting with staff and volunteers. They knew he deserved to find his forever home and make it out of the shelter alive.’

It broke the shelter team’s heart: “For quite some time Capone was the only dog we had in the shelter,” Carly Quinn, the director of the Ionia County Animal Shelter, told The Dodo. “All the kennels were empty, except for sweet, quiet, kind Capone.”

Capone was adopted from the shelter but returned after he began fighting with another dog at his new home. Capone became very depressed and stopped eating.

“He lost quite a bit of weight as he just did not have the appetite he did in his home,” Quinn noted. “It was very hard to get him to eat. We had to coax him daily with treats and assorted wet foods.”

Everybody could see that he lost a piece of himself and just lost his appetite.

“He was heartbroken,” Quinn said, “and anyone who has felt true heartbreak understands how proper diet takes the back seat.”

Having been adopted and then returned to the shelter changed Capone. “The Capone we met in 2017 and the Capone wet met in 2018 were two different dogs,” said NSC Director Jon Peddie. ” Quinn said. “After he was surrendered the second time, it seemed like he picked and chose his friends as if he truly felt betrayed. He became very attached to us shelter staff.”

“He is a ‘velcro dog,’” Quinn added. “A dog who loves to be right next to you, always touching you.”

Quinn checked their Facebook page and saw a message from a couple interested in Capone. “They had fallen in love with his pictures and his story,” Quinn said. “[When] they came into our shelter later that day, they had already gone to the pet store and made him a custom name tag with his name and their information.”

The staff at the shelter only wanted Capone to be adopted out to a home where he was the only dog. This proved more challenging than they thought it would be.

The staff of a shelter in the city of Baltimore, Maryland, shared a photo of Capone on their Facebook page. They hoped that someone would see him and adopt him. They were even more determined to get Capone placed after the shelter had to relocate due to construction work. He did not deserve to be left behind especially when he was so lovable and playful.

Quinn checked their Facebook page and saw a message from a couple interested in Capone. “They had fallen in love with his pictures and his story,” Quinn said. “[When] they came into our shelter later that day, they had already gone to the pet store and made him a custom name tag with his name and their information.”

But everyone was so nervous! Since his second surrender, Capone had become quite picky about who he liked and who he preferred to stay away from. What if he didn’t like his new potential parents?

Quinn practically held her breath. She walked Capone over to meet the couple with her fingers crossed. Quinn said, “As I walked into the lobby with Capone, he stopped and looked at Jon and Ashlee for a while. They both knelt down and Capone ran right into their arms.”

“It was truly a tearjerker,” Quinn added.

Even when Capone left, the staff was a mess. They were so nervous he would come back. But as time went on, and the staff checked in on Capone, they realized he DID get his happily ever after. Just look at him in his new home with that peaceful sleepy smile

“Look at that smile,” shelter volunteer Sammie Vincent wrote on Facebook. “Us shelter staff actually cried tears of joy for Capone.”
