Amidst a busy day, Mitzi Brogdon stumbled upon a lone brown and black dog staring at her with pleading eyes in a gravel parking lot. Despite having already rescued another dog that day, the president and director of Street Dog Rescue Recovery couldn’t just drive away. She followed the path to the cell tower where the abandoned pup, later named Dolly, was standing and was pleasantly surprised by her friendly demeanor as she approached and petted her.
It quickly became evident that Dolly required more than just love and attention. The affectionate canine appeared to be imploring Brogdon to accompany her down a path away from the main road. “She began trotting down the trail towards the cell tower, and I trailed behind,” Brogdon recalled. “It was then that I noticed a bunch of puppies pouring out from behind a fallen log.”
As Brоgdоn peeped behind the puppy’s makeshift abode, he was greeted with a delightful sight. Each adorable pup emerged, prancing in their cute little way, and he started counting. Even though he had rescued dogs before, the number of pups that greeted him was unexpected – a whopping sixteen! Brоgdоn admitted that even though he was familiar with seeing canines all over Oklahoma, this was still a shock to him.
After a thorough investigation, Brogdon found out that the adorable puppies came from three distinct litters. This implies that Dolly was caring for several newborns who were not biologically hers. The courageous mother had shielded them from harm’s way and provided them with a safe shelter. It’s unclear how long they had been fending for themselves, but one thing is certain – without Dolly, they would never have survived.
Brogdon contacted her rescue colleague for assistance, and while she waited, she bonded with the adorable litter of puppies. It broke her heart to realize that the little furry creatures were well-trained and accustomed to being around people, indicating that they must have been cared for lovingly at some point.
Brоgdоn was able to catch the adorable puppies eventually. However, she faced another challenge – where could she accommodate 17 adorable canines in a location where most rescue centers were already occupied beyond capacity? To seek help, Brоgdоn took to Facebook Live and reached out for assistance. Fortunately, she received responses from various rescue organizations such as Fоrever Yоurs Dоg Rescue, 405 Animal Rescue, The Fuzzy Friends Fund, and Safe Haven Animal Rescue, who offered space for all the puppies.
The adorable puppies are currently staying with their foster families until they receive all their necessary vaccinations and are ready to be adopted. While many people have shown interest in adopting the puppies, there hasn’t been as much attention towards Dolly, the heroic dog who is both loving and affectionate. Nonetheless, her foster owner, Brogdon, is hopeful that she will find a loving forever home soon. As a message to potential adopters, Brogdon encourages them to consider Dolly as she is just as deserving and eager to be part of a family despite being older.
