It has been a difficult few weeks for our rescue organization beginning when one of our recent puppy mill rescues Clementine, unknowingly gave birth to a premature litter while in foster care, while her foster mom was at work. You can imagine her shock when she came home to a crate of squealing little pug puppies.
Clem gave birth to her litter alone, without any medical or professional support. Since then it has been a bumpy roller coaster ride to try and save as many as we we could. Unfortunately, only one pup from Clem's litter survived, little Flannery who was so tiny and underdeveloped he was unable to move around or feed on his own.
For now we are focusing on the positive, Flannery is growing stronger every day and we are all very touched and inspired by what a wonderful mama Clementine is!
Straight from the nursery - here are some new pics of mama and baby pug.
Hmmm, I wonder how Plum would feel if I came home with a little boy pug like Flannery....you know it's only a matter of time :)
