Dog, puppies re-united at Humane Society

KOOTENAI COUNTY, Idaho. - Cats might have nine lives, but dogs apparently have second chances. A group of five puppies was recently re-united with their mother after their owner abandoned each, according to the Kootenai County Humane Society.

'Haley,' the boxer-mix was brought-in to the shelter on July 5 after a man said his neighbor moved and left the dog behind.  The neighbor was supposed to return for the dog but never did, according to the Humane Society.

Several days later an animal control officer found five puppies wandering through City Park in downtown Coeur d'Alene.

Authorities at the shelter accepted the puppies and soon realized their breed and color markings were similar to Haley's.

A medical examination confirmed that Haley had recently given birth to puppies and administrators say they are certain Haley is the mother of the puppies based on their interaction.

The Humane Society says they were happy to re-unite the family, but is now looking for new homes for the animals.

The puppies are approximately 7-weeks-old and are in the process of being weaned. The Humane Society says they should be ready for adoption after being spayed or neutered later this week.
