Watch This Shopping Cart Pup Give Birth and Get Adopted

Thanks to Rescue From The Heart, Bailey was able to get off the streets before she gave birth. Watch her rescue and meet the puppies!

A dog living under a shopping cart wouldn’t appear to have much hope, especially a pup who is pregnant. But Bailey had some kind-hearted humans looking out for her, feeding her and giving her water until help arrived.

When Van Nuys, California-based group Rescue From The Hart heard about the situation, they came to the scene and find a small white pooch who willingly took treats from their hands. But it was a slow process to gain enough of the dog’s trust to coax her out from under the protection of the shopping cart. In this seven-minute video, we get to see her full recovery from homeless and pregnant to hopeful soon-to-be mother.

Just weeks after being taken in, Bailey gave birth to a healthy little litter of adorable puppies – Julep, Tini, Shandy, Ginny and Gibson. After more weeks spent thriving as newborns under the care of their mother, each one of them went to a forever home, as did mom Bailey.

Thanks to a dedicated group of volunteers, donors, fosters and adopters, Rescue From The Hart has given many dogs and cats a second chance at life in a loving home. And sharing stories like Bailey’s helps the non-profit do its amazing work by matching animals in need with willing pet lovers.
