“Don't worry, I will take good care of your puppy.”
The person filming the whole scene zooms closer to the mother dog and the look on its face is of sheer pain and sadness.
The suddenly, she turns around and walks away in a determined fashion. However, before the footage cuts, she is seen turning around to look back at her puppy one last time.
The video has touched many online. Others have even asked why both mother and puppy couldn’t be adopted together instead of being separated.
Mother dogs build a strong bond with their puppies from an early age. When the puppies reach eight weeks of age and get adopted, their mother may feel lost without her litter.
It’s been reported that they could show signs of depression but if she gets another litter, she’ll perk up of she already hasn't.
