Finally someone alerted the rescue group to the coyote's plight.
"[Her condition] was so bad she stopped breathing," the group states. "We did CPR until we got her to the vet."
Since then the coyote has been recovering at the rescue's facilities in California's Santa Ynez Valley, where the group keeps a close eye on her.
But she still managed to surprise them with a litter of healthy puppies. And she's already proven devoted to them.
