Kaya Was Saved From Euthanization And Transferred To Her New Foster Home

Kaya was dropped off at a local shelter after she was found roaming the streets. After some time of being a shelter dog, she was slated for euthanasia, as nobody wanted to adopt her.

But then, Jesse and his wife spotted her and decided to foster Kaya until she found a forever home.

“She was at the shelter, slated to be euthanized. Nobody wanted her,” says Jesse.

She was extremely skinny and malnourished when she first came into her new home in Vancouver Island, Canada. Jesse set up her feeding schedule and was inclined to get Kaya back on her feet!

Jesse Had No Idea She Was Pregnant

Her new family had absolutely no idea that she was pregnant! When she started putting on extra weight in her belly area, Jesse thought that he was just overfeeding her!

“We had no idea what we were getting ourselves into. No one had any idea that she was pregnant… She started putting on weight in her belly area extremely fast, so I thought I was overfeeding her.”

But then, after a routine vet checkup, they found out that Kaya was pregnant!

“It was a huge shocker.”

She was expecting a litter, and even though her new foster parents were quite surprised by that, they were also very excited that Kaya was gonna become a mom!

The most amazing thing happened when Kaya started giving birth to her puppies! Her litter was not ordinary, as she gave birth to 16 Pittie babies, which was an unbelievably big number!

“It was fairly early in the morning, so I’m still thinking seven or eight puppies, she’s got this! It’s just gonna be a day thing and we will be done in time for dinner.”

It took her two whole days to deliver all the puppies, but she finally made it! Kaya, the brand new Pittie mom, was exhausted, but happy to finally be around her cute infants!
