“Our prayers were answered…Petunia, the beautiful Pitbull dog that was set on fire, finally gave birth…thanks to all who prayed for her & her babies! But the bastard that set her on fire is still loose…he must be caught as he is a danger to all!”
On Thursday, a grievously wounded dog was discovered alongside a roadway in Monee, Ill., and on Friday night, she gave birth to five puppies.
The dog, named “Petunia,” is now the responsibility of the rescue organization, It’s a Pittie Rescue, and she is receiving veterinary treatment from the Animal Wellness Center, whose staff stayed with her through the night to ensure that her delivery went smoothly.
Since Petunia’s story was first published, well wishes have been pouring in from across the nation.
Petunia has extensive burns across much of her body. Though no one is certain what happened to her, it appears that she was intentionally set on fire.
Fortunately, she was discovered and rescued, literally in the nick of time.
Petunia now has her own Facebook page, “Mama Petunia,” which can be accessed here.
