Watch The Amazing Moment A Shelter Dog Reunites With Her Puppies

Cora was surrendered by her owner to the Marin Humane Society. When the vets found out the dog had recently had puppies, the workers set out to look for them.

A heartwarming reunion between a shelter dog and her puppies is melting hearts across the United States and it’s easy to see why.

It all began when Cora was surrendered it at Marin Humane Society in California along with one other dog.

After a routine checkup, vets at the shelter discovered the female Chihuahua cross breed recently had puppies. The society’s animal rescue team set out to look for Cora’s owner.

“After some detective work and a lot of convincing,” they wrote on their YouTube page, “our team was able to get the person who surrendered the dogs to also surrender the puppies, as they still needed their momma and were not in a safe situation.”

Footage shot by the shelter employees shows the emotional moment Cora finally gets to see her puppies again.

Initially, in the video, the frightened dog can be seen cowering in a corner of the room. When a worker takes the puppies out from a crate, the dog immediately recognizes them as her own. Within seconds, the mother goes from nervous to excited, wagging her tail and jumping with joy.

After the reunion took the Internet by storm, the Marin Humane Society posted an update on Facebook with more photos of the cute family:

Since the dog’s name is Cora, the shelter named its puppies after popular television series "Downtown Abbey" characters. The three males were dubbed Branson, Carson and Molesley; the single female pup is Edith.
