A beloved stray dog crawled under a house to safely deliver her litter of puppies.

The beagle mix, since named ‘Mama Ruby,’ and her five puppies were rescued Saturday from a small crawl space under a home in Roxboro, North Carolina.

Robyn Handy, who founded Vintage Rescues for Racers, the organization that helped remove the dogs from under the home said Mama Ruby has been a stray for two years.

Handy told WRAL: ‘She is loved and known by many but was too shy and skittish to be caught.’

After removing the dogs out from under the home, the rescue group wrote: ‘This morning in Roxboro was nothing short of amazing. When the fire department tells you they’ve fallen in love with a beautiful stray hound and need help because she had puppies, you go!’

Handy said Mama Ruby’s litter consists of four males, now named Ember, Bunker, Halligan and Hook, as well as one female named Piglet.

‘THESE are the moments an animal rescuer lives for. Moments like these are the ones that keep you going. Rescue is tough, but today, friends, today was a GLORIOUS day in rescue,’ the rescue organization wrote.

Mama Ruby and her puppies are currently being cared for by a foster family and are doing well, rescuers said, adding that the family of dogs is slowly learning to trust humans.
