Dog Survives The Cold And Has Her Litter Of Puppies In A Snowdrift

When the weather gets cold, we’re all warned to bring in our dogs. And it makes total sense – dogs shouldn’t have to be left outside in freezing temperatures. Besides being uncomfortable, it poses a real threat to a dog’s life. Dogs have been known to die from being outside in the snow.

So happy that Snowbelle and her babies managed to survive what could’ve become a terrible tragedy.
