When the little family arrived at their foster home they were still in pretty rough shape. The puppies were only 3 weeks old and still needed constant attention, but Billie Jean was up for the challenge.
"Billie Jean had not been with her babies in weeks until they arrived in my home," Kristin Murphy Dubnoff, the family's foster mom, told The Dodo. "She took beautiful and loving care of them as soon as they were reunited. She cleaned and laid with them. She was and remains incredibly kind-natured."
