In an overcrowded shelter located in the southernmost tip of South Texas, a mother dog tried desperately to shield her only baby.
“Momma Sadie doesn’t know what to do,” Rescue Dogs Rock wrote on Facebook. “She doesn’t know how to help her baby, Benzy. She knows they are both in danger at the kill shelter they were abandoned in and baby Benzy is so petrified she hides behind her Momma, hoping she can protect her like all moms try to do for their children.”
“They were very, very, very frightened, especially the baby,” Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock, told The Dodo.
