When Rescue From The Hart got a phone call about a stray dog living under a shopping cart, they set out to save her life. To their surprise, there was much more to her story than immediately met the eye.
Los Angeles-based Annie and James Hart founded the non-profit dog rescue in 2014. With the help of volunteers, donors, and social media, they've been able to rescue many dogs and place them in forever homes.
Every rescue is special, but they'll never forget Bailey. How they saved her life (and a few others) is something that you have to see for yourself.
Bailey the dog was found living under a discarded shopping cart. A neighbor had been kind enough to leave her food and water and call for help.
Rescuers slowly gained her trust with treats. As they crept closer, they got a big surprise. Bailey was pregnant!
She was also a very sweet dog. It didn't take her long to warm up and accept a little love.
In fact, Bailey basked in the attention. The rescuers promised her that they would take care of her and her puppies.
Just a few weeks later, she went into labor.
One by one, the tiny puppies arrived and were licked clean.
Before long, all five of Bailey's babies were happily nursing. Just look at that motherly pride!
