All I can tell you is that the owner neglected the mother dog. She was brought in for a C section because a puppy was stuck in her birth canal. They let her struggle for 12 hours. Well, two puppies died and four of them had to be revived. The owner took the mother and the puppies back home and put her and them in the same pin as a intact male dog (he wasn’t neutered). The male dog ended up mating with the mother dog and ripped her sutures. She came back in to the clinic and was bleeding profusely out of her vulva and coughing up blood as well as stomach lining.
She died when the puppies were 8 days old. The owner wanted to leave the puppies at the clinic overnight. You can’t leave few day old puppies by themselves for “a night” because they’ll die. So the staff had to take them home to care for them because technically they were abandoned.
I can’t say anymore about the situation other than, the woman is somehow allowed to have all four of them back if she pays off her $700+ bill. She gets her welfare check on July 1st and will be getting them on Monday. But if I can raise at least $350 for my two pups then they won’t go back to the woman.
If this doesn’t work out, all donations will go back to the those who have donated. Consider this “in writing”.
