"We can tell that she's far along, but because we're not able to touch her, we can't do a thorough examination," McCutchen said on Monday. "That would just be way too intrusive for her. But we're probably thinking she'll have her babies in under a week."
McCutchen explained that she felt a bit sad for Rosa, since she's still a puppy herself.
"It's possible that her pregnancy was part of what's making her so fearful and standoffish," McCutchen said at the time. "I don't that once she has them, she's going to be totally fine. I think she's probably has a long way to go as far as socialization, but that could possibly be making it worse."
The team would soon find out. On Tuesday morning, Rosa had her puppies - 5 males and 1 female - in the first safe home she'd ever known.
