This is what love looks like when others are not watching. Back in 2016, there was an Australian shepherd named Maggie who was in her cage when she heard the cries of puppies nearby according to a Facebook post-Barker’s Pet Motel and grooming.
The family-run business in St. Albert, Alberta, often boards rescue dogs when there isn’t enough space for them elsewhere.
Maggie had given up her own babies a couple of weeks earlier. Those puppies happened to be without a mother.
Maggie made her move when all the humans left the site. Then there was a gate at the front of the kennel. Alex Aldred told that there was a spot where they can just slide in a water bowl. She pushed out her water bowl and wriggled her way through the opening.
She made her way down the hall until she found little orphans, clinging to each other. She couldn’t slip inside the kennel with them. So she pressed her body up to the cage as tightly she can.
The Aldred family was out for dinner that night. While checking the security cameras over their phone, they realized a dog had gotten out of a kennel.
They came back and Sandy Aldred was greeted by Maggie.
Together they went to see the puppies’ kennel. Sandy opened the cage door and Maggie made herself at home inside.
She was super affectionate with them. She was mouthing them and they were kissing her chin. So they had to keep
them together for the night. When they got back in the morning, they were still snuggled up.
Maggie and puppies finally found loving homes of their own. But people at Barkers pet Motel and grooming will never forget the night.
