A weary mother canine and her six tiny offspring were found tethered to a fence. Reportedly, the puppies were so young that their eyes hadn’t even opened yet.
In Elphin, a charming town nestled in Ireland’s County Roscommon, a compassionate soul stumbled upon a mother dog and her pups in a field. Refusing to leave them to their own devices, the rescuer carefully liberated them from their predicament and promptly transported them to a vet at the ISPCA National Animal Center in Longford. The identity of this kind-hearted stranger remains a mystery, but their act of compassion has undoubtedly left a positive mark on these defenseless animals.
Thankfully, despite their hunger and fear, all the dogs are in good health. According to a post on ISPCA’s Facebook page, a lurcher dog was found tending to her six puppies in a field near Elphin, Co. Roscommon, all while chained to a gate.
A compassionate individual came across the dogs and promptly alerted both the Gardaí and ISPCA. The ISPCA National Animal Centre in Longford swiftly provided medical care for the mother dog and her litter of puppies.
A representative from the center noted that the dogs did not have microchips, which is quite unusual as it goes against the law.
