A group of men from Michigan, who went for a woodland retreat for a bachelor party, returned with a dog and seven puppies in tow.
Mitchel Craddock took his family and friends into the Tennessee woods for his bachelor party, who noticed a stray dog outside the front door of their cabin on the first morning.
They quickly became friends with the dog and gained her trust, feeding her after they noticed she appeared malnourished.
Craddock told ABC News:
She was such a sweet dog that once we gained her trust, she was happy to see us, wagging her tail — just a big sweetheart.
They later noticed the dog was protecting a spot in the woods, later finding a big hole with seven puppies inside.
Not only that, they were very healthy:
Every single one had a big fat belly on them. The mom had given the pups literally everything she had.
The celebration fund, eventually became a puppy fund:
We pooled a bunch of money to buy food and beer. After the third day, our beer fund turned into puppy food fund.
All eight dogs were adopted by the groom, the groomsmen, or their relatives.
All the new homes for the dogs are within a five-mile radius of each other, meaning they can meet up for walks.
The mother was named Annie, while the puppies were named Bear, Brimmie, Daisy, Finn, Gunner, Knox and Rosie.
This is the groom Mitchel Craddock and Brimmie. Look at them.
