A dog who was mourning the loss of her stillborn puppy has gone on to adopt a litter in need.

French bulldog Perrie and her owner Nakita Wilson were both left heartbroken after the four-year-old dog birthed a stillborn on May 23. After she lost the pup, poor Perrie refused to eat or leave her bed. Nakita – a French bulldog breeder who prides herself in breeding health-tested, fit and functional Frenchies – said: ‘She was very sad and howling.

‘When I brought her home she wouldn’t eat and wouldn’t come out of her bed. Me and her were both depressed.’

This softens the kibble and makes the food much easier to chew.

However, the very next day, 31-year-old Nakita got a call from her vet who asked if she would be willing to take a litter of unwanted puppies that had just been born. The pups, also French bulldogs, were born that day – but their cruel owner is said to have asked for them be put down, due to the length of their tails. Nakita, from Largs, North Ayrshire, believes this was ‘fate’ and immediately said “yes.”

Perrie has since bonded with the litter like they’re her own.

‘The vet phoned me and started asking how Perrie was after the loss and then said that they had a Frenchie come in for a C-section and that they left the puppies,’ said Nakita.

Pet proof your house. To keep your pet healthy you should research what household products and foods can harm your pet. Make sure these are kept in secure locations so your pet cannot get into them.

‘I was just in disbelief that someone would do that in the first place because they don’t have tails.

‘I knew that the best chance for the puppies would be to give them a proper mum, and it would make Perrie happy.

‘But I was also worried about the puppies because they weren’t from responsible breeders.

‘We had come to terms that Perrie wouldn’t have pups, but it was just a total U-turn.

‘Mothers who have had their own puppies sometimes don’t take to them straight away, but she has.

‘She has really embraced being a mum, I think it was fate.

‘She was feeding them straight away. They were crying a lot on the first night but after that, they settled down.

‘Perrie has always been obsessed with puppies and used to try and steal them from other mums.

‘She is the most maternal dog I’ve ever known and is so happy she got them.’

Nakita posted a video on TikTok last week showing Perrie before and after meeting her new brood.

She wrote: ‘There is a reason I surround myself with animals and not humans – humans are vile at times and animals don’t judge.’

Limit treats to training rewards. This is an excellent way to make sure your dog views treats as special rather than expected. It’s also helpful in keeping your pet from becoming overweight or obese. Feed a species-appropriate diet, and partner with a holistic or integrative vet to maintain your pet’s well-being.

The clip has reached an impressive 7.1 million views and got more than 800,000 likes in just one day, with thousands of animal lovers flooding the comments.

One said: ‘I’m so glad she got her babies, but I feel for the other mum who had them taken away from her. People can be so atrocious.’

Another wrote: ‘It takes a special mum to adopt puppies immediately! So sorry for your loss, singletons are hard. She looks so happy to have munchkins to look after.’

Breathe easy. In addition to sweating through their paw pads, dogs pant to cool themselves off. A panting dog can take 300-400 breaths (compared to his regular 30-40) with very little effort.
