A Mother Heroically Attempted To Rescue Her Pup After It Had Fallen Into A Ditch
This is the incredible moment a mother heroically attempted to rescue her pup after it had fallen into a ditch. You can see that a Golden Retriever dog was attempting to pull one of her pups out of a ditch. The mother and all of her children appear to have across the ditch without incident .
The little dog, who had less good fortune than his brothers, was about to fall. The large retriever moved cautiously as close to the ditch’s edge as she could. But as he continued to lift himself up, he went on to firmly grab his little one by the ear.
They worked together to climb the slope, which, while not extremely steep, was enough to put the cute and fearful puppy in danger of being swept away by the deep-water current in the gully. The puppy and his mother were able to overcome the obstacle they encountered in order to continue their journey.
Nothing compares to a mother’s love, and even in the most desperate situations, the need to protect one’s children prevails in all species. Her behavior (so-called “maternal instinct”) comes from a mix of hormones and lessons carried over from her ancestors.
What makes mother dogs loving puppies?
Once a dog gives birth to her puppies, two different hormones contribute to her motherly instincts. The first is oxytocin, sometimes called the “love hormone.” It’s what drives a mother dog to nuzzle her puppies or wrap around them to keep them warm while nursing. (Interestingly, oxytocin is also linked to the bond that humans have with their dogs.)
The second hormone is prolactin. It’s involved in milk production but is also responsible for a mother dog’s protective nature. She feels this need to protect most strongly.
