Poor Bess the dog had a rough start in life. She was discovered roaming the streets of Tennessee, pregnant, sad, and all alone. When Jon and Tracey Steward saw her, they knew they had to do something. Thank goodness they stepped in because the sweet black dog was in trouble.

The Stewarts took the pregnant pooch right to the emergency room, where 12 puppies were born. She had a difficult labor and now the dilemma of what to do next. The Stewarts took Bess and all her babies back to their home to care for them. Thanks to the support of their friends, Bess and her puppies got around-the-clock care.

As the pups got older, it was time to find them homes. Bess and her babies got forever homes with friends of the Stewarts.

After a year passed, a reunion party was planned. Would Bess remember her babies? Would the siblings ‘know’ one another? Cameras were poised to capture the reactions.

Bess went bonkers when she saw all the now-grown pups. She wagged, ran to them, and even rolled over. She saw them all and wanted to meet and greet every single one of them.
