Rescuer Thinks She Saved 1 Dog, Unknowingly Saves 6

A rescuer thinks she's saving one dog - an abandoned, white German Shepherd with a severe case of mange when in fact she is saving six - her five pups that are yet to be born.

Full Story:
Gemma had a severe, but treatable case of Demodectic Mange that covered 70% of her body. Instead of taking her to the vet, her family dropped her off at the shelter. Gemma was clearly in pain. A volunteer at the shelter, Jolene, knew she had to do something.

Jolene, also an adoption counselor at St. Bonnie's Sanctuary (a part of Lange Foundation,) an animal rescue based in Canyon Country, took in Gemma and immediately started treatment for her condition. Already having a relationship with Gemma, Jolene took on the nearly 24 hour care of meds and baths.  Within weeks, she was clearly healing. Her fur was growing back and she was putting on weight. 

A little too much weight. Jolene found out soon enough that Gemma was pregnant and had been pregnant even before she left the shelter. 

Gemma gave birth to 5 healthy puppies. The puppies were adopted while Gemma had to continue her treatment for mange. 

But soon enough, Gemma found her perfect home too.

Special thanks to Lange Foundation and St. Bonnie's Sanctuary.

UPDATE ON PRECIOUS 9/7/2015:
Precious has been adopted to a loving family.  We couldn't be happier!

The unbelievable story of Precious started on the streets of South Central Los Angeles.  She was found bloodied, her body ripped to shreds.  She was being used as a bait dog, a punching bag to fighting dog who learned to be more aggressive.  Watch her incredible rescue and subsequent miraculous recovery.

UPDATE FROM MICHELLE FISHER 8/2015:
I just wanted to post a quick update.  Jax is doing really well.  Him and our son have quite the bond which makes me so happy.  He has lost all his puppy fur so he looks completely different.  He's a very happy and energetic dog and we couldn't be happier that he's here with us.

ORIGINAL STORY:
PAWsitive Channel and the SPCA International’s program Operation Baghdad Pups:Worldwide (OBP) team up to film the reunion of Sgt. Jacob Fisher and his dog. Fisher had recently arrived home from his seven-month deployment from Afghanistan, his 3rd tour to the Middle East. Sgt. Jacob waited nearly three months for the moment he would see Jax again. This reunion took place on April 24, 2015.

Sgt. Jacob is on active-duty, a hero who continues to protect our freedoms and our lives. When he found Jax, only a puppy at the time, he knew he couldn’t leave him to fend for himself in the harsh and potentially dangerous streets of Bagram, Afghanistan. He had to save one more life before going home – and he did.
