Orphaned puppies are found clinging to mother’s body in Russia

Seven orphaned puppies have been rescued after spending three days clinging to the frozen body of their mother in Siberia. 

The whining animals were found sheltering next to their mother, who had died in intense minus 20C cold in the Krasnoyarsk region of Russia.

Dog shelter rescuers said it took two days to catch the orphaned puppies who refused to leave the spot where their mother, a stray, lay in the snow in Yemelyanovo settlement.

Now rescuers want a Christmas miracle for each of the puppies – believed to be one month old – by finding them good new homes.

Rescuers fear the mother could have been poisoned by locals seeking to get rid of strays, and then froze to death in the Siberian cold.

‘We are in fact at a loss [as to] what happened,’ said a resident.

‘Perhaps the mother dog was poisoned by some heartless people, or else why did the big animal die and her puppies survived?’

The puppies were eventually all caught and taken to a warm shelter in Krasnoyarsk city, where they were given food and first aid, reported The Siberian Times.

They are all healthy despite their ordeal. 

‘They are fluffy with good undercoats,’ said one of the shelter staff. They will be of average size and will do well both in a flat or as security guards.

‘We are looking for new owners and will keep an unobtrusive eye on how the puppies are doing.’
