Her rescue came just in time.
In Savannah, Georgia, while on vacation with her husband, Rebecca Lynch made the impromptu decision to stop somewhere before flying home. Lynch made the decision to bring home something more significant rather than stock up on souvenirs like most tourists would.
Lynch told The Dodo, “I knew I wanted to save the neediest dog from a shelter before I headed home because Georgia has a lot of rural, high-kill shelters. “I wanted to help and had room in my car.”
A acquaintance who lived nearby told Lynch about Lizzy, a little terrier who was in danger of being put down. Lynch claimed that Lizzy, who was expecting, had been placed at a shelter.
Lynch was aware that she couldn’t continue to see the young puppy, who also had a broken leg, suffer.
The couple set up a bed and a blanket in the back car for the homeless dog to feel comfortable during the lengthy travel to Florida. In addition, Lynch sat next to Lizzy and gently petted her while her husband was driving.
Lynch added, “I just wanted to console her on the ride since I knew she was anxious and terrified.”
However, it’s possible that the pair went too far in making Lizzy feel secure.
After about an hour, Lynch recalled, “she eventually calmed down and rubbed her small head into my hand while I caressed her.” “She decided it was time once she was secure and at ease. I alerted my husband that I believed she was in labor when she began panting and becoming restless.
Lizzy gave birth to her first dog in the backseat of the car in just 20 minutes. Lynch served as a midwife, keeping the new mother at ease and ensuring the safety of all the babies.
Lizzy had given birth to three puppies by the time they arrived at the clinic. She was skilled, Lynch exclaimed. The veterinarian told us that everything appeared to be in order.
However, Lynch said that it didn’t end there: “Lizzy had another puppy at the veterinarian, then two more on the drive home. Lizzy was a fantastic little mother, and it was a really interesting experience.
The small family is doing well after a turbulent freedom voyage. Lizzy and her six puppies will stay at the clinic for a few more days before going back to Lynch’s house, where they will be cared for in foster care until every one of them is prepared to find their forever homes.
Lizzy is aware of her good fortune and makes an effort to express her gratitude to her rescuers.
Lizzie is adorable. She is so caring and trusting, bless her heart, considering everything she has gone through in her brief existence, Lynch added. She has a kind and kind soul. Quite remarkable
