shelter-dog-gives-birth-to-20-pups

One homeless dog almost set a world record when she gave birth to a litter of 20 puppies on Tuesday. The Guinness Book of World Records says the largest litter of puppies born is 24.


The mother of the litter, Luna, was found in Winona, picked up by Smith County Animal Control, and taken to their shelter.



Luna’s labor started Tuesday at 7:30 a.m. but by 1:30 p.m. she was not doing well and emergency surgery was required. Dr. Roy Wilmeth of Kingdom Vet Clinic in Flint, delivered the puppies.

Eighteen of the litter survived. The emergency surgery cost $1200 and animal rescue group, Because4Paws, covered the surgical costs and care of the puppies.


Luna’s new family has now been moved to a temporary foster home where the puppies are bottle-fed every two hours.


Luna and her 18 puppies will eventually need a new, permanent home.

Over 100 dogs and puppies are picked up by officials from Smith County Animal Control on a monthly basis. Luna, a Heeler/Lab mix is one of those dogs.



The Smith County Animal Shelter currently has 68 additional dogs available for adoption. Adoptions are free.

this-video-will-melt-your-heart-a-dog-owner-gently-wakes-a-deaf-and-blind-dog-and-brought-a-global-audience-to-tears

The owner of a blind and deaf 10-month-old dog showed how he learned to wake her so that she was not afraid, and In just five days, the video has been viewed 51 million times and racked up over 12.5 million likes.

 

Aiden Michael Mann adopted an Australian Shepherd named Plum in July 2019. His colleagues tried to find a owner for her, and as soon as the man saw the poor puppy, he immediately realized that he wanted to take her to him.

 

Despite the fact that Mann already has one dog, he had to figure out how to accomodate Plum for a long time because of its disability.

 

The owner was very worried about the fact that Plum was scared every time when he woke her. The dog abruptly jumped up even from light touches. Then Mann decided to try to gently blow on her face, and it worked.

 

"People ask me how I wake up my deaf and blind pup without scaring her," Mann captioned a clip of himself approaching a sleeping Plum. "I slightly blow on her. She still gets startled until she feels me. Then she wants all the love."

 

Across Instagram and TikTok, the comments is full of support for Plum — with many emotional responses and even a reeaction from celebrities.

 

"Not being dramatic, but I would die for that dog," one commenter wrote.

 

"Why am I crying," the YouTube star and makeup guru Manny Mua commented on the video.

pomeranian-puppies-are-the-most-cute-dogs-ever-50-pictures-to-proove-that

Let's get fluffy with Bemorepanda! Pomeranians are small, cute dogs, but they carry a personality of a big dog. They are very curious dogs, always in action and interested in everything that happens around them. Often, their favorite place in the house is the window from where they can observe everything that happens in their neighborhood.


1.


They will often bark, even just to announce that someone is passing in front of the house. They love being the center of attention, knowing about these dogs that they can become very petty about the attention they need.


2.


These dogs are perfect for the elderly, retirees, who can dedicate all their time and energy to take care of this dog. They can live happily in homes of any size. They are small enough to live in an apartment and active enough to enjoy a large house.


3.


They need to be walked every day to get rid of excess energy and keep their temperament balanced. They like to run, so they will also need a space where they can do this. Because they are intelligent dogs, they need to keep their minds occupied. For this reason it is recommended to participate in agility training courses.


4.



These dogs are not recommended for families with small children. They are very possessive with their food and can jump to bite a baby who does not understand that he has to respect certain limits. They need a lot of attention and can also show feelings of jealousy against the children occupying the room.


5.


It is not advisable to carry it in your purse or bag all the time. It is very important for the Pomeranian dog to be independent. You'd better let him go on a leash than be carried in his purse. Early socialization will shape this dog's good manners towards the people and animals he meets. There are dogs that bark at anything and it is very difficult to be trained to give up this habit.
