This sweet mama dog wanted to thank her foster mom for all her help looking after her puppies!
It’s not always easy gaining the trust of an animal. This is especially true if the animal hasn’t had a lot of human interaction early on in life or if they’ve had a ᴛʀᴀᴜᴍᴀᴛɪᴄ ᴘᴀsᴛ. It takes time to get a critter to warm up to us and have confidence that our intentions are good.
Fortunately for foster mom Stevoni Wells Doyle, she had no problem gaining trust from the pregnant, two-year-old pit bull named Graycee that she rescued from Rescue Rovers in Sᴀʟᴛ Lᴀᴋᴇ Cɪᴛʏ, Uᴛᴀʜ. In her 10+ years of fostering over a hundred dogs, never has she witnessed a canine that was so trusting! In fact, in a ᴠɪʀᴀʟ video, Graycee places all 11 of her newborn puppies on the lap of Stevoni, proving that she’s completely comfortable with her as her new foster mother.
“I think she feels unsure still as a new mom,” Doyle told “And she needed love and reassurance from someone she loves and trusts.”Doyle has looked after many dog moms, but none have ever given her their babies before. It was clear Grayce trusted her, and it seemed like she wanted to thank Doyle for looking after her and her babies.
“I was ʜᴏɴᴏʀᴇᴅ that she choose me to trust with her pups and herself,” Doyle says. “I’m still ᴏᴠᴇʀᴡʜᴇʟᴍᴇᴅ with her love.”
Doyle looked after Grayce and her puppies until they were old enough to be on their own. Then, the rescue group Doyle works with, Rescue Rovers, started looking for the right forever homes for the twelve dogs. Stevoni certainly knows what she’s doing as a foster mom. In fact, she says she will continue to ᴅᴇᴅɪᴄᴀᴛᴇ herself to ꜰᴏsᴛᴇʀɪɴɢ ᴍᴏʀᴇ ᴄᴀɴɪɴᴇs in the future! Watch Graycee give each of her puppies to her new foster mom below. There’s no doubt that Stevoni has earned her trust!
