Rottweiler Cheered By Surrogate Puppies

Dogs get the baby blues, too.

After giving birth to a stillborn puppy, an 85-pound Rottweiler named Abby adopted a litter of eight Boston terriers whose mother died in childbirth.

“To see this Rottweiler taking care of all these puppies that weren’t hers, it kind of makes you feel pretty good about it,” said Gray-New Gloucester Animal Hospital veterinarian Stephen Kinney, who arranged the match.

Five-year-old Abby, whose single pup was born dead Monday, was “down in the dumps” when the mother of the terrier puppies died the same day, said Abby’s owner, Deborah Hoffses.
