A service dog named Ellie surprised her owners and fellow travelers at the Tampa International Airport by giving birth to eight puppies last week!
Ellie, a two-year-old golden retriever, was set to board a flight to Philadelphia, when the dog suddenly went into labor.
Paramedics were called over to help and took over for bystanders who had stepped in to assist. One nurse in the crowd was actually able to help Ellie deliver five of the puppies before leaving to catch her flight! Ellie and all eight puppies are healthy! Way to go, Tampa Fire Rescue!
