Born in the woods, Nancy and her siblings had a very rough start to life. With their mom also being a stray living in the woods, these pups were headed for a life as feral dogs. If that would have happened, they all would have struggled to survive as the woods also contain a number of elements that would have put their young lives at risk.
But thanks to a very kind-heated woman Nancy and all her siblings were were spared that fate, and given shelter, love and the necessities they needed to survive. Unfortunately, the mom was very elusive, her rescue attempts failed and she continues to live as a feral dog. The pups were still nursing when they were taken in and their foster eagerly accepted the task of bottle feeding them all until they were old enough to eat on their own. SoCo Rescue was able to take the litter in when they were approx 8 weeks old.
