A rescued border collie-mix was nothing but skin and bones when the family coaxed her into their car.  Taking her home, she ate and slept, but on the third day grew restless. Something was not right.

Nikki Jo Watkins shared the story of the dog she named “Gypsy” with ABC 23 and how she escaped to find the seven puppies she had hidden in a dirt hole and carefully covered with tumbleweeds.  The family took the puppies, who are estimated to be about three-weeks old, and will soon be looking for homes when they are old enough to be adopted.

  1. Sometimes dogs do things that just amazes me. They truly have the instinct for life and love. (although I have an intense mistrust for pit bulls). It was 6 years ago this month that my best friend passed away at the age of 13. Cody was a male black labrador and I miss him every day. Those puppies in this story reminded me of him when he came into my life; just a small black ball of fur.

  2. Again, God Bless you – people who believe animals are stupid – are totally uninformed, this is just a beautiful story.

  3. Bless this lady and the dog. But how could she not have noticed that the poor dog was nursing?
    So glad mom was reunited with her puppies.
