A pregnant pitbull was found & adopted by a loving couple in a shelter. They soon realized that it should’ve given birth already. What held her off?
We’ll find out more now in regards to the previous installment. This will also give us more insight into better treatment approaches to other animals within our reach. Studies have been shown to measure the type of negative environments dogs have to go through in a pound. Particularly pregnant ones.
Animal shelters would have the best intentions, but the usual way for animals to be sheltered leaves a lot to e desired. Animals are kept apart from each other while being deprived of even more contact from lack of personnel, & not enough time for playful interaction among other things.
Storie, the adopted pregnant pitbull, was still in a protective mindset. That level of stress was leading to blocking its body to engage in the natural birthing process. The very thing this loving female pitbull was seeking to protect, she was about to lose.
As soon as the couple realized the impending danger, they got into ‘mommy birthing mode’ with their newly adopted canine. There wasn’t time to think on details, but to act. Get into the car & leave. Even while rushing to the vet, they thought Storie might’ve already started to lose her doggies.
Even the vet, once they got there, was still unsure about the outcome. Deciding to do an ultrasound, the resulting image created such unbelief that they thought the machine malfunctioned. Instead of seeing an expecting blank screen, there were shapes showing.
Even for the vet, it was a 1st in their practice. Needless to say, also for Storie’s caretakers. Still, there was something that one of the caretakers’ sense was present but still unexplainable. That’s what we’ll deal with next time..
