[Video] Rescuer Thinks She Saved 1 Dog, Unknowingly Saves 6

Gemma, an abandoned, white German Shepherd, had a severe, but treatable case of Demodectic Mange that covered 70% of her body. She was suffering from hair loss and an oily residue covering her body.

Instead of taking her to the vet, her family dropped her off at the shelter. Gemma was clearly in pain. A volunteer at the shelter, Jolene, knew she had to do something.

Jolene, also an adoption counselor at St. Bonnie's Sanctuary (a part of Lange Foundation,) an animal rescue based in Canyon Country, took in Gemma and immediately started treatment for her condition.

Already having a relationship with Gemma, Jolene took on the nearly 24 hour care of meds and baths. Within weeks, she was clearly healing. Her fur was growing back and she was putting on weight.

A little too much weight. Jolene found out soon enough that Gemma was pregnant and had been pregnant even before she left the shelter. Gemma gave birth to 5 healthy puppies. The puppies were adopted while Gemma had to continue her treatment for mange.
