Animal rescuers have seen just about every kind of situation when it comes to saving an animal. However, when this team came across a homeless pit bull walking around, they never expected where she would lead them. When they discovered her big secret they were absolutely shocked…
20. A Mission To Save Dogs
Dallas DogRRR is a Dallas, Texas based group of dedicated animal lovers that work hard to rescue dogs in need. Their mission is to find a home for every unwanted or abandoned dog in the area. Their mission is clear and they work hard to accomplish it.
19. Seen Everything
The volunteers at the rescue center have seen just about every situation you can think of. However, when they came across one pit bull wandering the streets of Dallas, they had no idea what they would be in for…
18. Dangerous Road
Rescuers noticed the pit bull walking along a very dangerous road. There were cars coming from all directions and the dog was walking around them to avoid getting hit. However, this wasn’t the worst of the situation!
The pit bull looked absolutely starved and weak. The rescuers quickly set out a bowl with food in front of the dog and she quickly devoured it. They began calling her Pittie and they wondered just how long she had been out on her own for her to be this hungry…
16. Scraped Up
When they look more closely at Pittie they could see that she had a scrape across her nose as well. With the scrape on her nose and her very hungry nature, the rescuers knew that this dog was in need of care. That was when they noticed something else odd about the dog.
15. Another Discovery
“It looks like she just had puppies,” one of the rescuers commented. “So they were probably taken away from her.” The rescuers were heartbroken at the thought of this. Could this pit bull have lost her puppies? Then they realized something else…
Pittie had made herself at home in a junkyard and one of the men working there said that he would see her in one spot continuously throughout the day. Could this be where Pittie had placed her babies? The rescuers went to scope out the area quickly. You won’t believe what they found!
13. A Tiny Baby
As the rescue workers made their way over to the spot they were surprised by what they saw. There in the grass was a tiny baby, resting in the shade. However, it definitely wasn’t a pit bull baby.
12. A Kitten
There in the dirt was a tiny baby kitten! It was only two days old and it was obvious that the kitten’s mother had abandoned her. So it seems that Pittie had found her and rescued her. But wait, that’s not all!
11. Maternal Instincts
It seems that Pittie had channeled her new maternal instincts into taking care of the poor abandoned kitten. When the rescuers brought the kitten over to Pittie she immediately began sniffing and licking the newborn. She had been taking care of the newborn in the most amazing way!
10. Taking Care
Throughout the time she was taking care of the kitten, Pittie had actually been nursing her. It seems that these two found each other during a very tough time. It was a perfect match. Once they were rescued…
9. Rescuing Them
The rescuers then took Pittie and Kitty back to the Dallas Mercy Animal Clinic. There they were looked over by the veterinarian on the staff, Dr. Rick Hamlin. “Over my 28-year career, I’ve never seen anything like this,” he said about the love shared between these two.
8. A Theory
“My best guess is that the mother pit bull had a litter of pups and they died or weaned and she still had milk,” he said. “The pit bull probably found [the abandoned kitten] and took it as her own.”
7. Perfect Timing
It was also perfect timing when the rescuers discovered them because the vet had noticed that Pittie’s milk was close to running out. If they hadn’t been discovered it would have been bad news for Kitty. It was as if it was all meant to be.
6. New Homes
The shelter knew they had to find Kitty a new home as she needed extra care at the moment. However, this meant that they would have to separate her from Pittie. Pittie was not happy about this and made it very clear to the volunteers.
“When I took Kitty out of the cage, Pittie started howling,” Dr. Hamlin said. “It was the first vocalization she made since she arrived.” However, they weren’t separated for long as the rescuers realized that the two of them had to be adopted together.
While things were starting to look up, tragedy unfortunately struck. Dr. Hamlin soon noticed, after carefully looking, that Kitty’s kidneys and bladder weren’t forming normally. Dr. Hamlin tried very hard to save Kitty but unfortunately there was nothing more he could do and Kitty passed away.
Kitty passed away at the shelter and the loss upset Pittie very much. However, shelter workers worked hard to keep Pittie’s spirits up. They wanted her to be happy when they finally found her a new forever home.
Eventually, Pittie was adopted by a loving and caring family. Her new owners already had some dogs so Pittie fit right in easily. It was the perfect home for Pittie to live in.
1. Amazing Duo
Although Kitty wasn’t able to make it, the love that Pittie had for her will never be forgotten. Their story will continue to stay in the heart’s of the shelter volunteers. Together they destroyed boundaries and showed what true love looks like.
