Just over two weeks ago, a beautiful German shepherd and her nine, gorgeous, five-week-old puppies were rescued after being abandoned in the desert near Palmdale, Calif.

The mother, dubbed "Mariah," by her rescuers had no reason to trust people...when she was approached by a woman who wanted to provide help, she did what any protective mother would do...she lashed out at the stranger.

Thankfully for this beautiful family, the determined, compassionate stranger persisted - saving the abandoned family from a lonely, sad demise in the desert.

Mariah and her babies were taken in by Kathleen at Rescue Oasis - she had a nursery available and was able to provide the mother dog and her young puppies with the safety that they needed.

It did not take Mariah long to realize that Kathleen was a friend and soon, the now safe mother was rolling on the floor, asking for belly rubs.

Today, this beautiful family is available for adoption through the Westside German Shepherd Rescue.
