We have green collar (female), white collar (male) and no collar (female) that still need our help. We only know one is not doing well. They are being rushed to the same hospital that treated our F litter – please continue to share and send prayers and/or good vibrations for these lil ones.
The Beginning of the story …
The beginning of this story begins when a “box” of babies were found in a field without a momma and without any clues to where they started their young lives. They were taken to the shelter. On that day, seven beautiful innocent babies entered into the shelter and were tagged for rescue by Shepherds Without Borders. One was very sick and gained their angel wings that day. The parvo tests were negative originally negative, but the morning, another sick puppy tested positive. Another angel gained its wings the second night. They are act like they are starving and are dehydrated. Precious souls …
There are only 5 left. There are 3 females and 2 males fighting for their lives with vet care in the shelter. We are actively raising funds for medical treatment as it is so expensive to treat this terrible virus.
