Krystle Woodward, Fowler, California runs a non-profit animal rescue center call Pinky Paws ResQ. She found out about a stray and she was determined to help the pup the named Betty Boop. But that was no easy task as this canine was not up for being caught and was clearly on a mission that nobody saw coming.
Betty would walk miles upon miles to scavenge food for her puppies that she had given birth to in an abandoned barn. But it was not one puppy or two but Betty Boop had a wapping ten puppies hiding out in the baseboards of a barn outside of town. Because of the distance, she would travel to find food, Betty became quite known it her small town and that got the attention Krystie and her husband. They manage to catch her one day but she would quickly escape.
They were more successful the second time around and managed to take her to a vet who told the couple she had given birth and was nursing. Krystie said, 'After work, I took her to the vet. I cried all night thinking about those puppies out there.' The next day the couple took her out in the hope she would lead them to her puppies. Betty immediately picked up the scent and lead the rescuers to an abandoned farm two miles from where they had originally picked her up.
Krystie said, 'She cried and started leading me two miles out into the country then as she got closer she slowed down. She took me down the vineyards to an abandoned farmhouse. She trusted me to show me where her 10 puppies were found. This is truly a miracle to me.'
Thanks to the efforts of the Woodwards and all who were involved in the rescuing of Betty and her ten pups, all the puppies lives and are now looking and waiting for a new home.
