We were thankful to have this sweet Silky Terrier girl in our care, and shortly realized her condition was more complex. Though barely a year old herself, Tilly was pregnant. Given her young age and diminutive size, we knew that it was possible she could struggle with delivery.
Thankfully the first-time mom was in our loving and expert hands, where we could do our best to ensure that Tilly would survive her labor. If she hadn’t been rescued, this would have been only the first of many litters her body would have been put through. We didn’t have to wait long. After a couple weeks, Tilly safely gave birth to five puppies, though sadly one was stillborn.
