It takes one person with a huge heart to change the future. This three-year-old did not have a future to look forward to. She did not have a chance of survival since she refused to eat and was getting weaker by the day.
Candice Miller got a call from her great aunt one day and told her about a friend who has bred her dog too early. This led to the mom not having maternal instincts. The puppy refuses to nurse.
Candice knew it was a long shot, but she needed to do something. She was hoping that her dogs could help. Kilo, one of her dogs, is very nurturing, and so she put a bottle on Kilo’s belly and soon enough, the puppy started to feed.
Penny, the dog who refused to eat from her mom, was not drinking from a bottle. She slowly gained strength. It was a twenty-four-hour job especially since bottle-fed dogs needed to be burped. Penny was also put on a heating pad to make sure that she is kept warm.
Penny loved cuddling with her foster siblings, Kilo and Moo. They all got to see Penny’s eye open for the first time and they also get to witness her first steps. It was a magical moment for the whole family.
The time came when Penny was finally ready for her forever home. It was very difficult for Candice as she already fell in love with Penny. it was like giving up her baby.
She had no intentions of keeping, but she was also having a hard time letting her go. This was a dilemma that she needed to face. Her love for Penny was too strong that she decided to keep her.
Together with Penny, Kilo, and Milo, Candice’s little family is complete.
