In another two months or so, when the puppies are fully weaned, they'll go into foster homes of their own, then get adopted.
At that point, Blossom can be spayed and begin her heartworm treatment, so she can start to heal physically as well as emotionally.
Sometime around late September, Escriva expects Blossom will be ready to go up for adoption, too. Having saved these puppies, Blossom will get to go on and enjoy her own sweet life.
"I find it very inspiring to see a beautiful creature like Blossom suffer such a heartbreaking loss and turn her full attention to caring for needy puppies, saving their lives," Escriva says. "Blossom is teaching us that the best way to heal is to help others."
