Grayce was a neglected dog and already pregnant when rescuers found her in the streets of Utah. She was brought to the Rescue Rovers Dog Adoptions in hopes that some family would take her in. But because it would be mere weeks before she was to give birth, she was transferred to a foster home.
That’s when Stevoni Doyle went in. Stevoni has been fostering rescue dogs for years, and most of the time, she loved to give a temporary home for special needs dogs or like Grayce, pregnant dogs that are about to give birth. These are the dogs that most people would find difficult to care for. But Stevoni has the love and patience to care for these dogs.
Love and trust
Many pregnant dogs have come and gone through Stevoni’s care for the past decade. She has witnessed many joyous and sad moments. Tragically, some puppies do not survive the birthing process. She has also seen various types of behaviors from the dogs that have once stayed with her. But with Grayce, she has experienced something that she has never seen other mama dogs do.
In one funny yet heartwarming video, Grayce, who has just given birth to a litter of 11 pups, displayed the ultimate form of trust, love, and gratitude. She picked her puppies one by one and took them to the arms of her foster mom. Grayce would also nuzzle her face in Stevoni’s lap, proud and happy of what she has done.
It was as if she was saying that those puppies were part of their family now; that Stevoni was also their mom. The overwhelmed foster mom didn’t know what to do but thanked Grayce for presenting her pups to her.
The video went viral online, and although the pups are weeks before they can be adopted, a lot of inquiries have already poured in. Grayce, who will be spayed when she has recovered, will also be up for adoption. Hopefully, all of them will find a forever home that will love them as much as Stevoni does.
