A Deadly Strain Of Dog Flu Is Spreading Throughout The Midwest. How Far Will It Reach?


There is a growing concern among pet owners about a quickly spreading strain of dog flu that has already sickened hundreds of dogs and killed 8. So far the flu virus has been most active in the Midwest after first being detected in Chicago, but new cases have been confirmed in Houston, Wisconsin, Indiana, and Ohio. Now there is concern in the Atlanta area, with the possibility of a new case popping up near the city, which has yet to be confirmed as the results are pending.

The dog flu virus spreads from nose-to-nose contact between an infected dog and another. It has the potential to rapidly spread because of this close proximity bodily contact and is now considered an epidemic. However, dog owner’s are urged not to panic.

There are easy ways to monitor and safeguard your pet’s health. First, keep puppies and other immune compromised dogs, like sick one or those of advanced age, away from other dogs. Second, if you suspect that your dog is infected with the flu make sure to contact your veterinarian immediately. It is most contagious within the first 4 days of being infected so the earlier it is caught the less it will spread. Finally, humans cannot contract the dog flu but they can spread it. Make sure to wash and disinfect your hands after petting any animals and look out for any warning signs or symptoms in the dogs you interact with.

They Reunite A Worried Mom With Her Tiny Babies, Now Watch Her Reaction…

Now this is a beautiful family…

Asha Attie, a small Shih Tzu, was abandoned at a Los Angeles shelter while she was in labor. It was clear she had lived a life of serious neglect, as her fur was completely matted and infested with fleas. The matting was so severe that she was unable to nurse her four puppies once they arrived, thus putting their lives in serious danger. That’s when the Bill Foundation received an urgent plea asking if they could rescue this mama and give her family a chance at life. The team stepped in and within hours, they were on their way to the shelter.

Once they arrived and brought the little family to the vet, Asha was separated from her puppies so she could be groomed as quickly as possible. It took over 90 minutes to shave her — but only moments for her to begin providing her babies with the nourishment they needed to thrive. The second she sees her puppies again, it’s clear she’s overcome by emotion and eager to nurse and care for her babies. Wait until you see this reunion!

The team said Asha Attie was a perfect mom to her babies, and was consistently attending to her puppies.

We’re happy to say the entire Attie family is now happy, healthy and have all found their forever homes! Thank God for these people, who did whatever it took to see these beautiful dogs to safety.


This is one incredible rescue, and the Attie family deserves to be seen by all. Please SHARE this video with your friends on Facebook!

He Finds An Exhausted Mom, Now Watch What Happens When He Touches Her Puppies

For weeks, Rosie the pit bull was homeless on the streets of Los Angeles before strangers stepped in to help. Her rescuers were in for a huge surprise.

When Rosie was approached by Eldad, she was hesitant and nervous. Eldad realized Rosie had just given birth to a litter of puppies, and was incredibly worried about them. Only Eldad couldn't find them. While sitting with Rosie under a truck for more than an hour, trying to convince her to lead him to her pups, he came up with a brilliant idea. He whipped out his iPhone and began playing sounds of whimpering puppies, hoping Rosie would think the sounds were coming from her own babies, calling for her. It worked. Minutes later, Rosie had led Eldad to her five tiny miracles. She had been nursing her puppies in a pile of leaves and trash next to a chain-link fence. They all desperately needed medical attention, but were finally in safe hands.

Today, each of Rosie’s pups — Faith, Champ, Samson, Shadow, and Clyde — are beautiful, strong, and sweet pit bulls. They've all found a forever home, along with Rosie herself. In the video below, you’ll watch the puppies grow and flourish — and be reunited at Rosie’s birthday party!

The pit bull parents – who have become a family in their own right — say they’ll never forget this special, magical day. It’s as if the dogs never skipped a beat as they play, run, and shower one another with love and kisses.

Thank you to the families who rescued this family and gave these awesome dogs their second chance.
