This past July, an expectant dog by the named Cinnamon was spotted lying helplessly in the streets. She had deep wounds all over her body, which made the rescuers come up with a hypothesis that someone stabbed her then abandoned her on the streets.
She was saved in time by The Dublin Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (DSPCA). After her wounds were nursed, the rescue team saw it wise to take her to the adoption home due to her advanced pregnancy. Enter Sean, the caretaker at the foster home, took care of her all the time knowing that she could give birth at any moment.
Maybe, the fact that she was to become a mother gave her the courage to hold on, and not to give up and die in the streets. It only took a couple of days from his rescue to give birth to 12 puppies, of which 8 are males and 4 females. The puppies were named: Wasabi, Lavender, Paprika, Salt, Saffron, Sage, Nutmeg, Pepper, Chilli, Basil, Ginger, and Jasmine.
Currently, mother and pups are in good health. Cinnamon is busy taking care of her babies. In a couple of weeks to come, the puppies will be ready for adoption.

Cinnamon is a proud new mommy… but she’s also a survivor. Days before she gave birth to her litter of 12 puppies, Cinnamon was a stray dog on the brink of death.
Rescuers found the mangled, heavily pregnant greyhound dying on the streets of Dublin.
Puncture wounds covered her entire body. The images were so gruesome that we’ve blurred them out.
The very next day after her foster dad Sean brought her home, Cinnamon began to deliver her miracle litter of 4 girls and 8 boys.
They can’t be 100% sure, but they believe an unknown person stabbed Cinnamon and left and her unborn puppies her to die.
Meet Basil, Chilli, Ginger, Jasmine, Lavender, Nutmeg, Paprika, Pepper, Saffron, Sage, Salt and Wasabi. All 12 of them were born healthy, and as you can see, they absolutely love their mom!
This is the face of a beautiful, strong survivor. It’s as if Cinnamon was holding out for hope; she knew her babies — and her saviors — were coming soon.
These days, the new mom and her pups couldn’t be happier. Cinnamon is improving with every day that passes, and it’ll only be a few more weeks until the pups are ready for their forever homes.
God bless the men and women who gave Cinnamon and her family a second chance at life! What an amazing, strong mother. Please SHARE Cinnamon’s story of hope with your friends on Facebook!
