Cruel owner chains a dog – who still takes care of his six newborn puppies – at a fence and leaves her

  • A walker saw the abandoned puppies near Elphin, County Roscommon, Ireland
  • IPSCA said that binding the mother and her nest at the gate endangered their lives
  • The six puppies were abandoned within two weeks of their birth because their eyes were still closed

A cruel owner left a dog and her six newborn puppies behind and tied them to a farm fence in Ireland last week.

An audience member walked to Elphin, a small town in County Roscommon, and saw the powerless lurcher puppies breastfeeding their mother chained at the gate.

The puppies, who were so young that their eyes weren't opened yet, were taken to a vet in a nearby center for the Irish Society for Prevention or Cruelty to Animals.

Dogs keep their eyelids closed two weeks after birth so that their eyes can develop. It is likely that the family of dogs was abandoned shortly after the mother gave birth.

The puppies and mother were examined and luckily the dogs had no other problems except that they were cold and hungry.

Tying the pooches without water, food or shelter & # 39; definitely brings her (the mother) together with her young puppies & # 39; s & # 39; lives in danger & # 39 ;, according to ISPCA center manager Hugh O & # 39; Toole.

He added that the recent cold weather in Ireland this week could have led to a completely different result.

Fortunately, after the vet had examined the family of dogs, there were no other health conditions except hunger and fatigue. Pictured: Emmy Lou is being examined at the ISPCA in Longford last week

After their investigation, the ISPCA center named the abandoned dogs.

The mother has been given the name Emmy Lou and her puppies are Billy Ray, Dixie, Dolly, Dotty, June and Patsy.

The IPSCA wants to bring the dog and her puppies back home early next year when the little ones are a little older.
