Grieving Labrador adopts bulldog puppies after their mother dies 

WAYNE COUNTY, Ohio – An Ohio family’s excitement quickly turned to devastation over the weekend when their 3-year-old dog died suddenly after delivering seven healthy puppies.

But a sad situation turned into a Christmas miracle thanks to a man from Kentucky, according to WEWS-TV.

Indy, a bulldog, died Saturday after her cesarean section, leaving her owners Daniel and Katie Weese with newborn puppies to care for.

Grieving, they took to their Facebook page — Red White and Bulldogs — to honor their pup.

That’s when they received an unexpected message: “Hey guys I am terribly sorry to hear of your loss. I want to throw an idea your way, it may or may not help. I have a lab that gave birth yesterday and she lost her pups. She is grieving and producing milk like crazy. If you’re interested it might be worth a try. If we can help let’s us know.” – Macy Grubbs.

Seems crazy, right? That’s what they thought too.

But they called Macy. And he told them the story.

His Labrador, Pixie, who he co-owned with a friend, gave birth to puppies the same Saturday Indy did. But Pixie and her puppies were attacked by another dog and her puppies were killed.

Now a mother was puppy-less.

So Macy did the only thing he thought he could do to help. He drove Pixie to Ohio the next morning to meet the seven bulldog puppies.

“It couldn’t have been 5 minutes before Pixie was laying on our living room floor feeding and cleaning her new babies!” said Daniel Weese.

The family dubs it a Christmas miracle.
