In Ohio, a pregnant dog was found tied in a backyard, abandoned by her family.
The Backyard Dog Project, a non-profit, all-volunteer group that helps owners improve the quality of life for their outdoor dogs, posted the story on their Facebook page. According to their post, the four-year-old dog named Harley has always lived there in the backyard. And when Harley’s family got evicted and moved out, they just left her tied in the backyard, still wearing a choke chain.
A neighbor then found Harley, who sheltered herself in a space beneath the boards left in the backyard.
The kind neighbor then transferred Harley to an enclosure. She took care of Harley, but she couldn’t keep her.
And when it was time for Harley to give birth, the kind neighbor placed her in a heated enclosure with plenty of blankets. And that was where Harley gave birth to 8 puppies.
Watch the video below and see Harley taking care of her newborn pups!
Why is it that some people find it so easy to just leave their dog behind?
Thankfully, the neighbor who’d been taking care of them was willing to look after the family for the next few weeks until they all found their forever homes!
