She was so stunned that she practically froze and gasped. Then it dawned on her that she wasn’t hallucinating. The puppy actually appeared that way. But she had no time to figure out how this happened. The dog was about to give birth to several more puppies soon, so she had to continue working. And when they puppies finally arrived, they added more intrigue to the mysterious situation.
They Loved Golden Retrievers
Katie had never seen anything like this in all the years she’d spent looking after dogs. And she’s been at it for quite a while. She’s a huge dog lover, and so is her husband, John Black. They particularly love Golden Retrievers and they have three of them. One is named Winchester, and the other two are named Annie and Leroy. But eight years ago, they decided to do more. So, they opened their doors to help other dogs in distress.
Coming To The Rescue

Kathie and John partnered up with the Neuse River Golden Retriever Rescue, and became foster parents for rescue dogs. The organization is based in Raleigh, North Carolina, and they take in Golden Retriever mix dogs and Golden Retrievers that owners give up, or get picked up and taken to the shelter. The Rescue will then find a suitable foster family to place the dogs in until they can find a permanent home. So, Katie and John were glad they could lend a helping hand.
Happy To Help
The Blacks fostered approximately 20 dogs over an eight-year period. But being a foster home for dogs can be expensive. It also takes up a lot of their time. But they’re more than happy to help. The couple also has an Instagram account, which they use to post photos of all the dogs they’ve taken into their home. But one day, they had taken a very special dog in. They didn’t realize it at the time, buy they were about to have one of the most unusual experiences ever.
Knocked Up And Homeless
The Neuse River Rescue learned that a Golden Retriever mix had been turned in at the county shelter. But she wasn’t alone. She was pregnant and about to give birth at any moment. They realized there was no time to waste since the dog would need a clean, safe place to deliver her litter of puppies. So, they grabbed her, and then they reached out to all of their foster partners, to see if anyone could help. But they weren’t expecting this response.
