On February 20th, Roseburg, Oregon resident Jessica Woodruff suffered a horrible tragedy. Her barn burned down, taking with it the lives of seven adorable puppies that her dog, Daisy, had given birth to only three weeks prior.
"We tried to run to the barn but it was too late. We had to hold Daisy as she tried to run into [it]," Woodruff told Buzzfeed.
After losing her babies, Daisy was depressed. She stopped eating, and would walk "down to the barn whining and sitting down," according to Woodruff.
In an effort to help her overcome her loss, Woodruff reached out on a Facebook group to see if there were any foster puppies in the area. She eventually heard back from a woman named Lorna Murphy, whose five-year-old dog, Chloe, had died shortly after giving birth to a litter of 8 adorable pups.
When Daisy was brought over to meet the litter, her maternal instincts kicked in right away. She's been nursing them ever since, and will continue doing so until they are weaned and can go back home.
Woodruff said that Daisy is "so much more herself" now, and that caring for the puppies has helped the bereaved mother recover from her tragic loss.
