Everybody, meet Blossom! Blossom is a gentle dog with an incredible story. She was only three-year-old when she was given up by her owners to a shelter in Texas. There, volunteers found out that the pup was pregnant with her own litter of puppies.

The problem was that Blossom needed to be treated for a medical problem she had, and that was only possible after she finished nursing her puppies. So one of the people working at the shelter decided to take Blossom in until she was ready to be adopted, namely after her treatment was completed. It is how the future mom found comfort in Maggie Escriva.

In the end Blossom did gave birth to her babies, but unfortunately only one of them survived. Despite she has been through a lot, that was too much for momma dog. She was completely heartbroken and went on a deep state of depression. She even refused to eat and drink water. The people who took care of her, feared for her life as nothing seemed to be able to comfort her.

Thankfully, all has changed though when Maggie came up with the brilliant idea to introduce Blossom to six orphaned pups that desperately needed a mom. The heartbroken mom immediately adopted the pups and began taking care of them as if they were her own babies. Her maternal instincts soon kicked in. Thanks to Blossom’s kind heart, all six pups survived and were able to find loving owners once they were old enough to be adopted!

“I find it very inspiring to see a beautiful creature like Blossom suffer such a heartbreaking loss and turn her full attention to caring for needy puppies, saving their lives,” Maggie said. “Blossom is teaching us that the best way to heal is to help others. “
