Her four puppies were supposed to use the burial hole as a makeshift den to stay warm and safe throughout the dreadful weather. The poor mother dog was struggling to feed and tend to her fluffy babies despite her best attempts.
Fortunately, an animal rescuer named Vesna Mihajloski intervened to save the mother dog from her dilemma. She rescued the puppies from their “grave home” and brought them to the animal shelter.
