Starving mother rottie finds a good home.
by Barry Bolen
I am a real dog lover, I just can't stand to see one go hungry. One day about a year ago I was in the back yard feeding my dogs (chow, golden retriever, yellow lab. My yard ends at the woods, and all of a sudden out of the woods comes this big rottweiler dog.
Scared the crap out of me at first, till I noticed she was skin and bones. She wouldn't come to me but didn't run away either. I said to her I bet I've got something you'll like, and went back to the house to get her some food. When I got back with the food she was gone, so I left it where she came out of the woods and went back inside.
The next day at the same time (I feed mine at the same time everyday)there she was waiting at the edge of the woods. I put food out for her and she waited till I walked away before she would eat it. This went on for a few weeks until one day she just came right up to me. I squatted down and she laid her head in my lap and I knew she was going to stay.
To my surprise I didn't see her for 3 days and then the 4th day my wife said your girlfriend is back and she's not alone. I walked outside to see her and 3 puppies maybe 2 or 3 months old.
We gave the pups to good homes and she is still with us. The mother weighed 53 pounds when we weighed her ( this is after feeding her for 3 months), and now a year later she weighs 92lbs and is a big baby.
I love her to death. She gave birth to 6 of the cutest puppies their 24 days old and 5 of them are over 5 lbs already, the runt is a boy at just over 3.5 lbs. I think I'm going to keep him, he seems to like me for some reason. The other 5 we'll be giving away to good homes, a Dr.where my wife works picked out the biggest boy and that leaves 4 girls to find good homes for.
I would do it all over again in a minute, just the way she lies on me when I'm on the couch and looks up at me like she's saying thank you makes my day every time. And she treats our grandchildren like they were her own kids - honestly you couldn't ask for a better dog than her.
