The love and dedication animals can show for their babies is heart-melting. When this pit bull was saved from the streets, for example, she sparked a race against time to find her puppies. And rescuers had to rely on just mommy’s maternal instinct to save them, while hoping all the while that the defenseless dogs had survived in her absence.
This particular story was brought to light on a December 2016 episode of Pit Bulls and Parolees that understandably touched many hearts. The Animal Planet show depicts the lives of ex-convicts who are trying to be productive members of society. To help them find acceptance, moreover, they work with another stigmatized group: pit bulls.
The episode in question featured a story about a dog that had recently been taken off the streets. The pit bull, who would later be called Miss Wanda, had been found in Napoleonville, Louisiana. And Tia Torres, who runs New Orleans’ Villalobos Rescue Center, explained during the show the condition in which the canine had been discovered.
