Two office workers in California were enjoying their lunch when they were suddenly distracted and an abandoned dog appeared and took a slice of her pizza.
“The dog looked hungry. When we were distracted, she jumped on the table and literally stole a piece of pizza and ran off, ”said Buffy Martin Tarbox of the SPCA.
Both officials realized that something was wrong with the animal and could see that the dog would need help. So they decided to contact the Palo Alto Peninsula Humane Society and SPCA for help.
The rescue team took some time to find the dog, but as soon as they got it, the little dog led them to her puppies who needed even more help.
The puppies lived outdoors, without any kind of shelter and were very close to starving to death.
“When our team arrived at the scene, the dog led them to their little nest with its six puppies,” Buffy told KTVU.
The dog seemed to know that the rescue team was there to help her puppies in a way she could never do. And that’s certainly why she took them to the puppies.
“This poor dog mom was struggling to survive on her own, eating what appeared to her and trying to take care of her baby puppies,” said Tarbox.
The rescue team took the entire dog family and brought them into their care and placed them in a foster family.
The whole family was given names of the British royal family. The mother is Queen Elizabeth and the puppies are William, Harry, Kate, Lady Di, Charlotte, and Meghan.
They have all been put up for adoption and so far only Kate has found a home. But we remain hopeful that this royal family could find a lifelong home in no time.
This poor little dog could barely take care of herself. For her to have to subject herself to having to steal food, one can already imagine her situation. But what we want to draw from this is that it was her act that led to her being rescued along with her puppies.
