In a touching twist of fate, the Instituto Amor em Patas (IAPA) recently came across a pregnant mother dog who had been left at their doorstep. This furry friend, named Natajuli, was nine weeks pregnant and in desperate need of assistance. When the caring volunteers at IAPA found her, Natajuli was frail, incapable of standing, and full of anxiety. Her delicate state touched the hearts of those who came to her rescue, and they embarked on a journey of nurturing, encouragement, and fresh starts.
Natajuli’s previous owner had abandoned her at the gate out of fear of impending motherhood. Initially, Natajuli displayed protective behavior, guarding herself and her unborn puppies from unknown faces of the volunteers. Nonetheless, with time and persistence, she began to open up and trust those who reached out to offer their assistance.
As soon as Natajuli was spotted by one of the volunteers, they couldn’t help but notice her distended belly, wondering how many puppies she was carrying. They decided to conduct tests the following day since she appeared weak. The volunteers were anxious about Natajuli’s condition and made sure she received the utmost care.
The volunteers were thrilled when Natajuli returned to the shelter for an ultrasound to ensure a safe delivery. Despite her frailty, Natajuli bravely gave birth to a bouncing baby boy. The volunteers were ecstatic yet surprised when Natajuli continued to deliver not just a few, but a whopping 14 cute puppies. The sight of Natajuli and her 14 puppies stirred up various emotions among the volunteers – from overwhelming joy to the responsibility of caring for them.
Natajuli and her puppies went to the vet for check-ups, ultrasounds, and blood tests to ensure their health and well-being. The volunteers cared for them with dedication and love. Much to their relief, Natajuli and her puppies passed all the tests and emerged healthy and strong. The puppies were chubby and lively, proving that the volunteers’ effort and care paid off.
One volunteer expressed their emotions by saying that they were almost moved to tears upon seeing Natajuli’s smile, and the puppies were just too cute that they couldn’t resist showering them with affection. As the heartwarming story continues, the volunteers are faced with the enjoyable task of naming the 14 adorable puppies. They invite everyone who is following their journey to suggest names that hold significance and meaning. These names will become a part of the inspiring story of perseverance, optimism, and limitless empathy that characterizes Natajuli’s journey and the lives she gave birth to.
