Pregnant TX dog delivers in IA

DE SOTO - AHeinz57 Pet Rescue went down to Texas after Hurricane Harvey and brought back 96 dogs.

Sandy, a dog Local 5 has been following since the beginning, was very pregnant when they brought her back to Iowa. On Labor Day, Sandy went into labor and delivered nine healthy puppies. 

She did so at her foster mom, Heather Russell's home.

Heather volunteered to foster Sandy and the puppies until they are ready to be adopted.

"I know they still need fosters, there's a high demand. The more fosters they get the more dogs they can rescue," said Russell.

The CEO of AHeinz57 Pet Rescue said they've already been in contact with shelters in Florida to see if they need help with making room for displaced pets after Hurricane Irma.
