Thanks to the intervention of detective Marnie Waller, a dog mother and her 8 newborn puppies are now finally safe
It was a day like any other for a Tulsa, Oklahoma police detective. Marnie Waller, this is the name of the policewoman, she was accompanying her husband to work, when nearby he noticed a poor puppy so thin that it was possible to count all his bones. He was walking around alone and his state of despair was clear.
As a good animal lover, Marnie was unable to get that image out of her head all day and every day thereafter. Eventually, he decided to to investigate and to get to the bottom of the story.
He began to go to the place where he had seen the dog everyday. He understood that it was one pitbull female and that she lived among the refuse of a nearby landfill.
He started wearing them every day of the food and to try to establish a relationship with her confidence.
When she got close enough, I noticed her belly was extremely swollen. It is exactly at that moment that I realized that the puppy was pregnant. My desire to do something to help her has grown even more.
Marnie Waller’s surgery saves the lives of 8 puppies
There was an extreme urgency to get that little dog to safety. Marnie Waller knew that those puppies could not possibly be born in a dangerous place like one is dump.
Unfortunately, the detective didn’t have time to take the dog away before giving birth. The umpteenth day she went to feed her, she realized they were there 8 puppies scattered throughout the landfill.
With the help of a local SPCA, the policewoman managed to capture all the newborn dogs and even their mom, and then bring them all to the shelter closer.
Although all the babies were apparently healthy, Mom was in critical conditions. Marnie’s intervention, the volunteers said, was truly providential. They would not have survived in those conditions and now, instead, they had a chance.
After a few weeks of hospitalization and constant care, in the end, all the dogs are back in shape. As soon as possible, volunteers will find one for all of them comfortable home where to live, grow and thrive.
