She’d Chase Down Cars That Passed Hoping They’d Follow Her Into A Drainage Pipe

Dog Rescue Shelter Mladenovac received a call about a dog living in a drainage pipe. The temperatures were unseasonably cold. No one was sure how she was surviving.

What was strange, however, was that she would come out when a passerby got close enough but then retreat back into the pipe.

Even if a car passed, she’d pop her little head out. What was she trying to say?

When the rescuers drove to the area, they saw that most of the pipes were buried beneath the snow but one seemed accessible. As the rescuers got out of the vehicle and walked over, they saw tiny paw prints. This must be where she’s hiding.

The dog then hears their feet crunching in the snow and makes an appearance. In fact, she runs over to them! Her tail wagging like crazy, in her own language she tells them: “Thank goodness you’re here!”

The rescuers investigate the pipe and that’s when they realize what the sweet dog was trying to say as each stranger passed by. She had three helpless babies inside and they all needed help.

The puppies, too afraid to come out on their own, needed Mom to come back and comfort them. The rescuers were hoping they’d follow Mom back out again but that failed.

They were still too afraid. So Mama was picked up and placed inside the warm van. They’d have to get the puppies themselves. And it was so cold out!

Now that Mama is safe inside the van, the rescuer, Milan, makes his way back to the pipes. He sprinkles food around, hoping to entice the puppies out.

But it was no use. The puppies were too young and were more interested in nursing than solid food.

As night approached, the rescuers had no choice. The temperatures dropped further. They had to go into the pipes themselves.

One rescuer used long branches on one end to “scare” the puppies to the other side, hoping this would move the process along.

Their plan began to work! One by one, the pups were pushed deeper carefully by the branches. They were scooped up one by one but the third puppy was the hardest to get.

They cried and of course, those little sounds are heartbreaking, but we all understand that the puppies need to be saved no matter how scared they are.

Soon all three babies were safe in Milan’s hands.

By the time they get on the road to head over to the shelter, it’s already dark outside. Miraculously, Mom and all three babies are in good health.

They need treatment for heartworm and vaccinations but they will be okay. Seeing Mom eat her first decent meal is so heartwarming! Now she will plenty of milk to feed her babies.

The rescuers can’t get over how beautiful Mama’s eyes are. She’s such a good mother. Had she not pursued all those strangers, who knows what would have happened to the little family.

The little family, together and safe, will live at the shelter until the puppies are old enough to go to loving, forever homes. Mom will also be available for adoption.

We are so happy that the family is safe and warm. Milan and his crew really do incredible things for animals in need.
