This story takes place in Tijuana, Mexico. Juan Jose started to worry when he realised that his Pitbull, Hades, was acting very much out of character.

Hades was usually very calm and could be found snoozing in his doghouse most of the time. If he was acting so restless and destructive now, it must be because something was out of the ordinary.

A heart-warming discovery

So of course, the first place Juan Jose decided to check was Hades’ beloved doghouse.

And lo and behold, there was something amiss. But it was much sweeter than Juan Jose could’ve ever expected. Indeed, when he came up to the doghouse, he realised there was something inside. It was a pregnant cat!

A heroic pooch

Moments after having been found, the stray gave birth to her litter of kittens inside Hades’ doghouse! During the whole process, Hades stood patiently outside, never trying to enter the doghouse which was now the cat and kittens’ safe space.

What's more, the dog let the cat continue using his doghouse while she cared for the kittens in their first few weeks of life. They certainly couldn’t have asked for a better protector. Well done, Hades!
