This is Iris the Pit Bull. She had just given birth to a litter of puppies in the bushes by the highway in LA when Hope For Paw’s Eldad Hagar and Lisa Chiarelli came to her rescue. She’s distrustful, afraid and really protective of her puppies.
Iris looks like she has been abandoned by her previous owner because she has been homeless for some time now. She desperately needs help because she has puppies!
Iris could have easily ran away from her rescuers as she panics over their presence but she stood her ground and guarded her puppies with her life. She refuses to leave her babies behind.
There’s nothing a mother won’t do to protect her young. A mother’s love is one of the most beautiful things in the world and this mom is proof of that. She didn’t abandon her babies even at the expense of her own life.
