Seven Newfoundland Puppies Found Living Alone On Desolate Island


While a desolate lake in the middle of Canada may not be the most obvious place to find a litter of puppies, this story proves that miracles can be found in some of the most unexpected places. These puppies were not located in the most obvious of locations but that did not keep them from capturing the hearts of anyone who has heard more about their amazing story.


The puppies were originally discovered by a boater who happened to be passing by the island at the time. The island is uninhabited and the boater knew that they needed to help as soon as they started to hear all of the yelping. Once the dogs were located, the proper authorities decided to step in. Norway House Animal Rescue took the trip north and the dogs are now residing in Winnipeg.

The dogs have since been given a new name. They are now known as the “Gilligan’s Island Crew”. To this day, no one seems to know how the animals became shipwrecked. We are at a loss ourselves. How in the world did this happen? Why would someone do something this unspeakably cruel? This is simply too much to wrap our heads around.

This rowdy crew will be given names of their own once the rescuers are able to figure out their personalities. While the animals were not familiar with humans at first, it took no time at all for them to become accustomed to their presence. This definitely bodes well when it comes to their ability to locate a forever home over the long haul.

These pups were understandably terrified of humans at first, though. After being dumped on a deserted island to die, we can see why these animals would feel such a way. Now that they are learning more about human nature, they are coming to realize that there are people who have their best interests at heart. If you would like to learn more about the names these animals have been given, be sure to visit Norway House Animal Rescue’s Facebook page.

Pass this story along to those who are interested in adopting these animals. They are currently being held at Winnipeg Pet Rescue and they could use your support.

Normal House Animal Rescue could also use your support. Please share away, everyone! You never know whose life you might be saving in the process.

Okay. This is getting a little crazy. ABC News, Washington Post, all the Canadian Outlets pretty much, and France. Yes….
