Mama dog chases her truck full of puppies for miles!
Moms will go to great lengths to protect their children. They will put themselves in harm’s way if they believe their children are in danger. The same is true for canine mothers as it is for human mothers.
The maternal instinct is such a crucial component of life!
How far a mother will go for her children is demonstrated by the tale of one small dog mom.
Karlee is a volunteer dog rescuer who is trying to locate some puppies that she has heard about.
Karlee learned about a litter of puppies sheltering beneath a pile of wood on Jeju Island in South Korea. The issue got critical when the residents learned that the wood scrap would be seized and destroyed. It would take a team to locate the puppies in time because the region was so big.
The team set up traps with food and drink once they arrived at the building site.
The objective was to capture the pups and make sure they were secure and safe. Karlee eventually succeeded in luring the stray dogs away from the large woodpile and into their care by providing them with food and water—things that stray dogs don’t often have access to.
She would come each day to check if they could capture the puppies during her lunch break and after work.
The little ones at last emerged after three or four days! They were originally quite wary, but they were persuaded to go to safety. The crew still had work to perform even after the initial phase of the “mission” was over. At this age, puppies weren’t living on their own. The squad had no clue how they would locate their mother, who was likely somewhere in the neighborhood.
Although the puppies were in one area, a mother dog may be everywhere.
Who knows how far the mother dog traveled each day in her hunt for supplies or food? The crew would check the area every day to see if they could spot the mother loitering there. After several days of looking, they finally located their first glimpse.
Despite seeing her for the first time, the mother’s rescue proceeded slowly.
The mom was very wary of people and avoided them like many street-smart strays do. She resisted approaching even when offered food and sweets. Since the island was so far away, there was no practical method to trap her, and the situation was desperate.
They finally made an attempt to use the last item.
Nothing was functioning, not food, not shelter, not cages. The pups were their sole means of influence. They had the brilliant idea to use the pups as a bait. They loaded the pups onto the back of a vehicle and drove off toward Karlee’s residence.
The mama dog chased the truck for the entire 10-minute drive back!
The mother dog pursued the vehicle all the way to Karlee’s house in a remarkable display of endurance and affection. Officially, they were all in safe. Even though it took her a few weeks, once the mother entered Karlee’s home, everything improved. What a loving mother she is!
