In the small suburb of Riverdale, Georgia, Sadie had been living behind a store for several months. When Clayton County Animal Control found her with a litter of puppies, she was brought to the shelter. A local rescue organization offered to care for the puppies until old enough to be adopted. Sadly, Sadie, the mother dog was left behind.
Partners for Pets offered to rescue Sadie, secured a loving foster home and arranged to pick her up last Saturday. Somehow Sadie escaped from Animal Control, and rescuers and staff suspected the dog had left searching for her puppies. When captured, she had been full of milk, and her maternal instinct had to have been very strong.
“I have asked for the location they originally picked her up so we can start there,” Partners for Pets posted on their Facebook page, asking everyone to be on the lookout for Sadie.
Just four days later, Sadie was found! An update on the rescue’s Facebook page told the story of a miracle:
“OUR MIRACLE SADIE.
Sadie is the girl who escaped AC last weekend and we now know why. This girl was determined to find her remaining 2 pups which she did. She is scared and went 8 miles but found them and will be going to a rescue with her 2 tiny “runt” little puppies. We can’t thank Clayton County Animal Control enough for not giving up and determined to find this girl. She is a MIRACLE and she had an Angel watching over her. God Bless all of you for this sweetheart.”
Not only was Sadie rescued again, but her remaining two puppies must have been hiding the day Animal Control officers found the young family. Who could believe Sadie traveled eight miles back to where she cared for her puppies to find the last two?
And on Thursday afternoon, Sadie left the building with her puppies.
“SADIE and her two puppies have left the building. Free at Last. Thank you Asst. Commander Turner and Supervisor Jones for helping us get them out.No catch poles for this sweet girl. She loves chicken and had some good fried chicken nuggets today. Her two little ones stayed close. To all who helped, we can’t thank you enough. This was a Miracle and God was watching over her and her babies.”
Just another reason why dogs are so special, admired and loved.
