Michigan Humane Society’s investigators were alerted after a concerned citizen found a malnourished dog in a garbage can near 7 Mile and Southfield Road in Detroit.
They discovered she had recently given birth when they arrived to save her. They looked for her litter of puppies in the area but were unable to find them.
She is now recovering at the humane society, but she appears to be very upset about the loss of her children. Once she has regained her health, MHS will assist her in finding the perfect forever home.
Meanwhile, the humane society is determined to find her puppies, despite the fact that they recognize how difficult it will be, especially since the mama dog could have come from anywhere, not just Detroit.
It’s possible that the mama dog was dumped after giving birth, and her puppies were kept to sell.
Please contact the Michigan Humane Society at 313-872-3401 if you recognize this dog or have any information about her puppies or how she ended up in this situation.
