No one knows exactly how life has been for Melody. But as any other animal dropped at a shelter, she’s clearly unwanted. Her frail body is a giveaway that she experienced a significant amount of neglect. Yet, her own condition did not stop her from being the best mom she could be.
Melody recently gave birth to ten adorable and healthy puppies. Her previous owner renounced the little furry family to an animal shelter in Texas a couple of days after the mama dog gave birth. But despite her emaciated condition, Melody made sure that all her babies were properly fed and nourished.
When Dallas Dog RRR Manager Patti Dawson heard about Melody’s ordeal, the puppy’s sad and meaningful eyes struck some nerves. Patti has always been sympathetic with mama animals in the shelter and she simply couldn’t take Melody and its little family off her mind. So, she decided to step up and help.
Because Melody is a mama Pit Bull, she was at a disadvantage in finding an adoptive family. The moment her babies have been weaned, her days are already numbered. And for each day that she doesn’t get adopter, her life is put at risk. Thankfully, a foster stepped up and offered to care for Melody and all her 10 puppies.
Once the little furry family moved into their foster home, the mama dog transformed not just physically but also emotionally and spiritually. Melody knew that, finally, she and her family are safe. They adjusted perfectly and started to thrive in their new environment.
Melody began to add some weight. And her babies are all in good health. The family’s transition was absolutely perfect.
It will take a couple more weeks before Melody, as well as her puppies, will be ready for adoption. But until then, their foster family promised to shower the once unwanted family all the love and attention that they deserve.
