Her new owners put her Maggie on a kennel for a night, but the staff at the shelter was shocked when they saw Maggie escape from her cage to comfort a few puppies in another kennel who were also separated from their mom.
The owner of the pet motel, Sara Aldred, shared that Maggie would often bow to the abandoned puppies and make them feel less lonely by poking them through the chain link gate of their room.
Aldred added, “She was really happy, and then she took me back to their room as if to say, ‘I really need to meet these puppies.’ They were just all so happy to be together. The puppies needed her and she needed them. It was pretty perfect.”
