A stray pregnant Pit Bull was wandering the streets of York, South Carolina, all by herself on a cold winter day.
Animal Control officers picked her up, but instead of bringing her to a shelter, they contacted a local rescue to see if they’d take her in. It was best that this sweet mama-to-be give birth at a rescue in a comfortable setting as opposed to a scary shelter.
Halfway There Rescue agreed to take her in and later named her Daya. Sadly, Daya lost her babies in utero and on top of that, she had a bad infection that required surgery. Thankfully, everything went smoothly and she went to live with a foster where she could recuperate.
Daya was now safe, but one important thing was missing: her babies. Staff noticed that Daya would take in socks and toys and act like they were her babies, perhaps to fill the void.
