Heartbreaking video: Mama dog saves as many puppies from drowning as she can

An animal shelter in Israel posted a video to its Facebook page, showing a mother dog frantically coming to the rescue of her trapped, drowning puppies.

According to the translated post, there were 12 total puppies trapped under a building on an Israeli military base.  There was a major flooding issue due to severe weather.  The opening to access the trapped puppies appears to be too small for any of the humans to attempt a rescue, so the distressed mama sprang into action.

Her efforts and those of the soldiers around her resulted in the rescue of seven puppies.  Unfortunately, five did not survive.

The shelter’s post mentions that the surviving dogs are recovering and waiting for possible adoptions.
