This past August, citizens of Ireland’s capital came across something incredibly disturbing. They found a severely injured greyhound wandering the streets. Thankfully, they called the Dublin Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals straight away.
It appeared that someone, for who knows what reason, stabbed her multiple times.
The wounds ran deep, and Cinnamon was very weak…but she had a very good reason to stay alive.
Twelve of them, in fact! Just a few days after she was rescued, she gave birth to this batch of adorableness.
The eight boys and four girls were aptly named Basil, Chilli, Ginger, Jasmine, Lavender, Nutmeg, Paprika, Pepper, Saffron, Sage, Salt, and Wasabi.
Mom and the little ones will rest easy in their foster home until they all find loving forever homes.

It’s amazing what a mother will withstand when she knows she has children to protect…but it’s also so disturbing that someone would put her in that position in the first place. Cinnamon truly is a very strong lady!
