Saved from deadly womb

Vet, shelter workers perform emergency C-section to save 5 of 7 puppies, mother


Precious and five of the puppies survived the procedure, which caused toxicity to some of the dogs. Had it not been for the emergency surgery, she and all the puppies would have died, Deel said. Mother and her five new pups are doing fine, Deel said, but are not out of the woods.

“An animal shelter is a really rough place to raise puppies,” Deel said in an e-mail. “The shelter hopes to place them soon with someone who will be willing to give them the care and attention they need.”

Deel said ideally the mother and puppies would remain together during the next several weeks. Deel said the shelter is offering a $40 deal for not only Precious, but all the puppies as well.

The shelter will commit to spaying or neutering, microchipping, and one round of vaccinations for all the puppies when they come of age.

Anyone wishing to commit is asked to call the shelter at 817-598-4111. Updates on Precious and the puppies can be found on the shelter’s Facebook page.
