Let’s all agree on one thing – all puppies are cute and special in their own way. Some have the most beautiful big eyes, others have a charming chubbiness, fluffiness, and then there are those who win our hearts by simply being their goofy little clumsy selves. But there are those who stand out in the crowd, with an unusual coloring that catches the eye immediately. There are puppies that look like pandas and then there are puppies that sport impressive facial hair.
Meet Salvador Dolly, a shelter puppy from Dallas that rocks a dramatic mustache stretching from one side of her lip to another. She is part of a litter of 11 and currently lives in foster care in New York. Bored Panda reached out to Hearts & Bones Rescue to find out more about her and her big family.
“It’s puppy season in Dallas right now and there are always multiple moms with litters at the shelter,” Allison Seelig from Hearts & Bones Rescue explained. “Dallas Animal Services, a shelter with the 3rd highest number of animal intakes in the entire country, […] took in mama and her 11 babies as strays and cared for them for 2 weeks, but puppies are at a very high risk of getting sick in the shelter environment, so we knew we had to get them out,” she continued. Within a week, the entire family of 12 were moved out of the shelter straight into foster care, all thanks to the cooperation between Dallas Animal Services and Hearts & Bones Rescue.
“The whole family is now relaxing in a comfy and safe home and getting medical care and monitoring until the puppies are old enough to be weaned,” Allison reported, and added that the puppies are currently only 5 weeks old and are still nursing. Although currently all 12 dogs are living under one roof in foster care, the non-profit organization is planning on moving them to NYC in late August to separate foster homes until they find their forever homes.
