7 puppies rescued in Oklahoma after dog gives birth under home
TULSA, Okla. - A crew of firefighters rescued seven puppies on Thursday after a pet dog gave birth underneath a house in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
According to the Tulsa Fire Department, a concerned resident called the department on June 9 and notified them that her dog had given birth to puppies underneath her home.
The fire department said the team made "quick work of the rescue" and had to crawl under the house and all the way to the front to where the seven puppies were located.
"The owner was beyond grateful," Tulsa Fire wrote Thursday. "Avery Daisy, the mother of the puppies, is happy that her babies are safe."
The post said Avery’s owner will soon be visiting the vet to have the puppies spayed.
