Dog of the Week: Madea

Our Cedar Creek Lake dog of the week is Madea.

In late November 2020, we got a message from a desperate man who, upon moving into a new house, discovered 4 dogs living under it, including 2 puppies. Taking in 4 new dogs at once is a very daunting task, but we knew we had to help. We were able to make room, and thankfully he was able to catch them quickly and bring them to Morton’s Small Animal Clinic. Upon evaluation, it was discovered that it was a family of four dogs, including mom - Madea, dad - Scout, and their young daughters Loretta & Cara. The vet also soon discovered that Madea was VERY pregnant. Just 4 days later, Madea gave birth to a litter of 10 puppies! Imagine if the man moving into the house had not caught them in time? Or had decided not to take action? This sweet family would have struggled mightily to have  enough food to keep mom and 10 puppies alive in the cold of winter, and indeed, most likely not all would have made it. We knew at the outset it would be a challenge to save all 4 dogs, and at the end of the day, we saved 14 lives! We are happy to report that Cara has been adopted, Madea, Scout and Loretta are now available for adoption and the beautiful fast growing puppies, black lab/cur mix, will be available for adoption starting 2/1/20.
