Then there were ten

Gary DeNicola was just being a good samaritan, but now he is the dad to nine new puppies. He saw an emaciated dog crossing a dangerous intersection, and decided to get her to safety. He brought her home and planned to take her to the shelter the next day. Well, the next day, this stray gave birth to nine puppies! Gary started making calls to get them into a shelter, but something unexpected happened: They said no.

In this economy, many shelters are already completely full. Maybe they could find room for one extra dog, but not one plus nine puppies. Well, Gary stepped up to the plate and is taking care of all the puppies along with the mama, who is now named Ruby. He is now dedicated himself to this four legged family and plans to find good homes for each when they are ready to be adopted. They are five weeks old now, and headed to the vet next week for their first set of shots.

If you live in the Atlanta area and are interested in taking one of these cuties in, you can contact Gary at Best of luck!
