Mama Carried Her Dead Baby Around, Seeking Help After She Gave Birth On Streets

A stray Pit Bull was forced to give birth on the streets, but one of the puppies sadly passed away.

The mama dog carried her deceased puppy around, desperately looking for help. A good Samaritan, Stephanie Brooks, spotted the dog and contacted Hope For Paws for help.

When they arrived, rescuers found the Pit Bull lying in some brush, shielding her two-day-old puppies with her body to protect them.

She was too scared to leave her hiding spot on her own, so rescuers led her out using a gentle snare, and spent time gaining her trust.

They named the mama dog Jade and moved her out of her hiding spot so they could focus on her puppies.

Rescuers counted six surviving puppies and the one who had sadly died. They decided to name her Citrine and brought her to be cremated.

They brought Jade and her puppies to CARES for a medical evaluation. It was there that they realized that Jade was just a young dog herself, most likely around one year old.

Staff cleaned her and her babies with a damp towel and gave them food. They decided to name the babies Ruby, Topaz, Diamond, Amber, Amethyst and Emerald.

Even after being rescued and brought to safety with her babies, mama Jade still seemed very sad and concerned.

The next morning, rescuers received a call from Brooks.

It turns out that one of her neighbors admitted to taking one of Jade’s puppies home, thinking she could raise the puppy herself, but quickly realized she was wrong.

She called Brooks to return the puppy to her mama where she belongs.

As soon as they got her to the clinic, they rushed to reunite her with Jade and decided to name her Turquoise.

Jade was so happy and relieved to finally have her missing puppy back. She was no longer acting stressed or sad like she had been the day before.

The Little Red Dog agreed to foster the family, whom are all now ready to be adopted. If you’re interested in adopting Jade or one of her babies, please visit, or email

10 of the Smartest Dogs in the World:


A friend of mine has a beautiful Dalmatian. Friendly, energetic and lovable, she was a perfect family pet… but she wasn’t the smartest pooch on the planet. See, she knew how to go through the pet door out into the garden, but she had no clue how to get back inside. It never occurred to her that the flap could swing both ways. So she would sit outside and howl until my friend would open the door.

Repeated demonstrations of the dual movement of the flap had no effect; it just did not compute. The dog breeds on this list, however, probably don’t have that problem. They’re widely considered to be among the cleverest canines in the world. Take a look and see if you agree.

1. German Shepherd

No surprise here. German Shepherds are the world’s best police dogs, military dogs, and some have even been movie stars (remember Rin Tin Tin?). Brave, loyal, smart and strong, they’re the total package.

2. Beagle

Also on the list of the best family-friendly dogs in the world, the Beagle has an incredible nose that lets them sniff out just about anything. Born detectives, they’re not the most trainable pets, but they are smart. And hey, nobody ever accused Snoopy of being dumb.

3. Golden Retriever

A popular choice for assistance dogs for their easy temperament, natural intelligence and loyalty, Golden Retrievers are natural guides and also serve as great rescue dogs. Active and fun to be around, they’re wonderful family pets.

4. Border Collie

Border Collies are considered by many to be the geniuses of the dog world. Expert herders, laser-focused (they’re known for their intense stare), and incredibly agile to boot, they’re workaholics and excellent athletes. Just don’t expect to keep one cooped up in an apartment.

5. Poodle


Did you know poodles were originally hunting dogs? They respond very well to training and are quick to learn tricks. So don’t let the fluffy looks and styled mane fool you! These dogs are among the smart canines around. Plus, they’re among the best dogs in the world for those who suffer allergies.

6. Belgian Malinois


A terrific military dog, the Malinois is a natural herder, tracker and worker. Smart, trainable and protective, these dogs require an owner who knows what he or she is doing. In addition to the military, Malinois are often recruited as guard dogs and police dogs as well.

7. Papillon

Named for their butterfly-shaped ears, papillons are small, cute and pretty smart. They’re considered the smartest of the toy dog breed, with intelligence levels comparable to the über-smart border collie. They’re alert and focused pets, and loyal and lovable: an ideal friend for he family.

8. Doberman


Sadly, Dobermans are known more for their ferocity than their smarts, but these are considered among the most intelligent dogs in the world, as well as one of the most effective guard dogs around. They’re outstanding students known to be affectionate and obedient.

9. Bloodhound

Don’t let the wrinkles and dopey expression fool you! Bloodhounds have the keenest of noses, and are often used for trailing (so much so that their evidence can be used in court against you!). These are loving but strong-willed dogs, and are often used on search and rescue missions.

10. Australian Cattle Dog

You need a smart, determined and energetic dog to control unruly cows. And that’s just what the Australian Cattle Dog, or ACD, does. They’re intelligent enough to herd these much larger creatures, and while they need their independence and wide open spaces, they’re eager workers who know how to get the job done.
