ABANDONED BOXER GIVES BIRTH IN ANIMAL CONTROL TRUCK

Doña Ana County Animal Control Officers picked up a Boxer-mix dog found tied up at a vacant property on Monday. By the time she was loaded in the truck, the dog started giving birth to puppies. By the time they reached the shelter, she had seven puppies.
The total number in her litter is now 13. According to Animal Services Center of the Mesilla Valley Director Dr. Beth Vesco-Mock, dogs brought to the shelter in this condition are hard to rehabilitate.
“When this dog was brought in, she was emaciated and extremely malnourished. Dogs like this don’t thrive in a shelter environment, so we hope someone will adopt her quickly.”
The Animal Services Center is always looking for foster homes to temporarily care for animals waiting to be adopted. For more information, you can stop by the Animal Services Center of the Mesilla Valley, 3551 Bataan Memorial West, or call (575) 382-0018.
