While their mum clung to life having undergone emergency surgery, Clara’s ten puppies faced an uncertain future. With no mum to feed them, it was down to Janet and her small team of volunteers to save their lives. With feeds needed every 2 hours and each feed taking that long, this was a mammoth night and day task that the Diana Brimblecombe Animal Rescue Centre faced.
At the end of January an 8 year old miniature schnauzer arrived at the Diana Brimblecombe Animal Rescue Centre, having escaped life as a breeder in a puppy farm. It’s unknown how many litters in those 8 long years she would have produced before being discarded by the breeder, but judging by the poor state of her, it was many. However, unlike the other dogs who arrived with her, she seemed a good weight, if anything, plump.
