A Texas rescue group recently took in an injured shepherd who had obviously just given birth to puppies – the dog, dubbed Tessa, was frightened and suffering from a leg injury. According to Nicholas Pet Haven, the injured dog was abandoned near the Spence and White Veterinary Clinic last week.
Given her injuries, and the area where she was found, the rescuers fear that wild hogs killed the newborn puppies. The rescue group wrote:
“She is full of milk so we hate to think what happened to her babies! She shakes and is afraid someone will hit her. We took her back twice looking for puppies but none were found. The area is full of wild hogs and we believe they may have killed the babies.”
It is theorized that Tessa was injured while trying to protect her puppies from the wild animals…on February 1, the rescue agency updated Tessa’s many Facebook fans:
“We went back to location again this morning but there was no sign of any Puppies. We will be moving her to a quiet foster home soon so she can learn to trust and come out of her shell.”
Tessa’s heartbreaking story has captured the hearts of dog lovers on social media – you can follow her progress at this link to the rescue agency’s page.

She is full of milk so we hate to think what happened to her babies! She shakes and is afraid someone will hit her. We took her back twice looking for puppies but none were found. The area is full of wild hogs and we believe they may have killed the babies. She probably tried to stop them which may have caused injuries to her leg.We need donations for vetting, a foster to help her over her anxiety and suggestions for a name. Please feel free to comment!
