When one rescuer first saw this emaciated mama dog, he told Animal Planet, "I was just shocked." The first thought that came to his mind was that if the mama dog was like this, what were the puppies going to be like? This video begins in such a heartbreaking way, but watch what rescuers do. We've written about dog rescues before, but this is something else.
