Wounded Foster Dog Delights Rescuers With A Surprise Delivery

When a Canadian foster pawrent agreed to take in a seriously
injured dog, she knew it would be a lot of work. But she had no
idea she would also end up caring for 11 puppies!

Nancy Duykers of Winnipeg learned about Sheba when she was taken
in by Feed the
Furbabies Canada
. The dog had a terrible wound on her left
front leg which may have been caused by a gunshot.

At first it seemed as if Sheba’s leg would have to be
amputated. But, after performing surgery to remove the dead,
infected tissue, her veterinarian was confident it could be saved.
She was released to Duykers as a medical foster, with instructions
to bring her to vet appointments and administer her prescribed

“I was looking after Sheba’s wound. That’s what I thought
my job was going to be as her foster mom,” Duykers told
Global News

As Sheba grew comfortable in her cozy new foster home, she began
to gain weight. Duykers mentioned it to her vet, but he chocked it
up to Sheba being in heat and experiencing a false pregnancy.
However, her belly continued to expand.

“Then she started getting bigger and bigger, so they did the
ultrasound and there they were – all the little puppies looked
like little gummy bears with heartbeats.”

Sheba was going to be a mom!

When the big day arrived, Sheba gave birth to 11 healthy
puppies. Suddenly, Duykers – who has two permanent pups of her
own – had a dozen extra mouths to feed instead of just one! For
seven weeks, Sheba and her boisterous brood took over the Duykers

“It’s been a busy house,” Duykers said in the
understatement of the year!

This past Saturday, the pups were finally old enough to move on
to the next phase in their lives. The entire family was transferred
into the care of Tails of the
Misunderstood Canine Rescue Society
, who worked in conjunction
with Feed the Furbabies to cover the costs of Sheba’s care.

Tails of the Misunderstood has promised to provide updates on
Sheba and the pups via their
Facebook page
. In the meantime, check out this adorable video
