They say a mother’s love knows no bounds – and that certainly couldn’t be truer in the animal kingdom.
Whether we’re talking about a giant newborn like this elephant who got herself into a scary situation or a baby bird trying to leave the nest for the first time, in nature, it always seems like mom and dad are around to help them when they fall, and teach them the ways of the world.
We’ve seen animals do some pretty amazing things for their little ones, but nothing made my heart skip a beat like the following video of a mother dog going above and beyond for her tiny pups.
The video was filmed in Chennai, South India after devastating rainfall, believed to be the result of El Niño phenomenon, flooded the coast. The disaster was called the costliest of 2015, and after seeing the following footage, it’s easy to understand why. Although the clip focuses on a mother dog and her family, it’s not hard to see the mess that the flooding left behind.
Srinivasan Raghunathan started filming the street dog after he saw her take notice to her young pups crying in the distance. As you can see, the stray doesn’t hesitate to dive into the treacherous flood waters to swim toward her newborns.
Once she reaches the terrified puppies, she grabs ahold of them and uses all of her strength to swim across the waterway and bring them to safety.
It’s impossible not to feel good after watching this video. We’re so happy this mother dog and her puppies are ok!
