“This morning Marcel called me and told me that [animal control of Assumption Parish] dropped off a very emaciated [dog],” Torres revealed. But as well as her malnourishment, Miss Wanda was also exhibiting another sign that made rescuers concerned. Specifically, it was clear that she had recently become a mommy.
“From what I’m told, she’s still lactating and this can mean there’s some little newborn puppies somewhere that depend on her to live,” Torres continued. “It’s a very urgent situation.” She decided the best way to find them, though, was to rely on Miss Wanda’s own maternal instinct.
Within minutes, then, Pit Bull and Parolees workers Marcel and Lizzy were sent off with Miss Wanda to try and find the puppies. And, heartbreakingly, the rescue team would describe the poor pooch as “frantic” to find her babies. Whatever move she made, though, the pair would have to follow; the new mom was the key to reaching the puppies before the search ended in tragedy.
