To understand the relationship that puppies establish with their mommy, 2 determining factors should be highlighted: the puppies are not thermo-autonomous, the mother is their only source of heat.
Heat for a young puppy means survival. Because of this, the cubs are always brought to the mother and placed between her legs and close to the belly, side-by-side or one on top of the other, crawling in a circle. Although the mommy, for whatever reason, does not breastfeed them, it is necessary to always maintain them by her side.
As a 2nd factor, the mommy is also the only resource of food for the cubs. And getting food is also synonymous with survival.
For this reason, we can recognize why the bond they have is so close, which likewise explains that when a young puppy is in risk, the mother reacts quickly to assist him.
And in the vast majority of the moment, it does not matter that whoever is putting them in danger is the owner of all of them. The mommy dogs will be there to protect their puppies. So if they have to confront their owner, they will.
In the video we can see an example of what was specified, when a man, allegedly the owner of all the canines, simulated a dangerous circumstance for the young puppies.
After counting the puppies one at a time, with the presence of the mother at his side, he faked an attack on the little ones utilizing his sandal for this purpose.
Instantly and in less than a second, the dog threw herself on the man to quit his action and manage to eliminate claimed sandal. The man, on the other hand, kept acting he wanted to hurt them.
As demonstrated, mothers are on the lookout for any movement and are ready to take any activity or request help when it concerns securing their precious puppies.
