When we choose to adopt a dog from a shelter or rescue group, we are doing a good thing for homeless pets all around the world. However, we rarely consider the feelings of a mother dog as her puppies are adopted one by one.
Our hearts were torn recently when we saw a mixed-breed mother dog in China’s Henan Province dash into the street to give her puppy one more kiss before sending the puppy off with its new owner.
The mother dog was a pregnant stray who was rescued and was being cared for by students at Zhengzhou University in Henan province. She had given birth to a litter of seven puppies, which was unquestionably a precious gift for her. As a result, when the puppies were ready to be adopted, their mother was devastated.
She had no choice but to say good-by to her puppies since she felt it was the best thing for them. She walked out to say her final goodbye to her last puppy. It’s a genuine moment shared by the two.
As seen in the video, the small dog was dropped to its mother, who licked its face and kissed it goodbye. ‘Don’t worry, I’ll look after your puppy,’ the owner assured her.
