Meet Angel, Stray Dog Mom Of The Year

Angel the stray dog

On a journey to help 10,000 street dogs per month, Angel is a stray dog, one of many, who has beaten all odds of surviving on the streets.

Angel is a street dog living in Thailand with her puppies. She has worked hard to keep her pups safe from traffic, and now they’re all getting the second chance they deserve. 

Who Is Angel?

Angel is a dog from Thailand living on the streets with her eight puppies. Angel was named so because she truly is an angel – caring and doing the best she can for her family.

She and her puppies lived on the side of a busy road. Angel is always vigilant, fighting the traffic to keep her puppies safe from harm.

An Angel On Earth

Three of her puppies were adopted, but Angel still had five pups to care for. Then, unfortunately, Angel disappeared one day.

The puppies were fed and given water each day, but without their mother for about four days. After that, it was only a matter of time before they’d get clipped by the traffic.

Fortunately, the puppies were able to be caught to get moved to a safer location.

Even more fortunate, thanks to the power of social media, Angel was located as well. As a result, she was reunited with her five remaining puppies, and together they were brought to a new area.

Now, Angel and her puppies are living by the sea. Thanks to the help of some locals, they built miniature housing for the pups.

All the puppies and Angel are being fed and checked on every day. Also, they now have a roof over their head.

When the time is right, Angel will be brought to the vet to get spayed. Then, when the puppies are old enough, they too will be brought to the vet so they can be spayed and neutered.

In the meantime, the puppies will get vaccinated, dewormed, and receive any medical care needed. They’re all being checked on every day and are now able to thrive in their new area.

Hopefully, they’ll be able to find forever homes soon enough.

How To Prevent Unwanted Litters

Everyone would love to have a puppy. Allowing your dog to breed sounds like it would be great, but there can be some drawbacks to it.

Unfortunately, unwanted litters end up abandoned or as strays. In some drastic cases, the puppies aren’t healthy, or the pregnancy can harm the mother.

In some cases, it’s perfectly safe to have your dogs breed, as long as your veterinarian approves it.

However, it’s far too easy to have unwanted litters of puppies.

Spay And Neuter Your Dogs

The best way to prevent your dogs from breeding is to get them spayed and neutered. In some cases, a female may go into heat before getting spayed. However, make sure to keep a close eye on her.

Then, when she’s able, you can get her spayed. Then, when a male dog is old enough, you can bring him to the vet and get him neutered.

It’s best to prevent dog litters altogether for the following reasons:

  • It could harm the mother
  • The puppies may end up sick (due to complications with the pregnancy, inbreeding, etc.)
  • Unwanted puppies may end up out on the streets
  • There are plenty of puppies, adults, and senior dogs looking for forever homes

When spaying or neutering your dog, you’re allowing your pup to live a carefree life. They can go to the dog park or doggy daycare without worrying about keeping away from the opposite sex.
