A dog staying at a kennel outside Edmonton was caught on camera sneaking out of her enclosure to go sleep as close as possible to two puppies who were missing their mother.
"She just had that maternal instinct and she wanted to go out and be with them,” Aldred said.
Maggie "kind of MacGyvered her way out" of a small opening in her enclosure where her water bowl sat. "It wasn’t easy for her. She had to do a lot of wiggling,” Aldred said.
The two puppies had just been dropped off at the kennel by the Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society and are still looking for owners.
