Rescue from the Hart is an animal organization based in Los Angeles that fosters and finds permanent homes for neglected dogs. They visited a neighborhood one day to respond to a call regarding a homeless white dog who was living under a shopping cart.
A few kind residents placed a food and water bowl by the pooch’s den, although they reported that she didn’t like it when anyone came too near—she would growl at them.
It turned out that the white, long-haired dog was pregnant, which probably explained why she was wary of people. The two volunteers took things slowly, gradually gaining the mama dog’s trust.

First, they gave her bits of hamburger from a distance. A few minutes later, one of the women approached the canine with a colorful leash and more meat in her palm, which she let the dog sniff and eat.
Eventually, she allowed the rescuer to pet her, and she didn’t even growl.
Afterward, the rescuers used a gentle snare and some more hamburger to coax the mama dog out of the bottom of the shopping cart. She was reluctant at first, but when she sensed the women were there to help her and her unborn pups, the pooch decided to place her trust in them.
The women named the pooch Bailey. Just a few weeks later, the mama dog gave birth to a litter of five healthy pups. Rescue from the Hart named the four girls Julep, Shandy, Ginny, and Tini, while they called the boy Gibson.
The five lovable babies grew up to be healthy, active pups who loved frolicking and being silly with each other and their mom, Bailey. The mama dog herself was as playful and energetic as any of her young ones.
Once the five puppies were old enough, Rescue from the Hart put the family up for adoption. Sadly, they could not be together, but the great thing is that all of them found a loving family that will spoil them with treats, cuddles, and kisses.
Rescue from the Hart set out to save just one dog—but they ended up rescuing an entire family.
