Description
The true story of a dog abandoned in the Arizona desert. Frightened and alone, she gives birth to six puppies and somehow manages to protect them all from the heat and from coyotes, hawks, and other dangers. They're all eventually rescued by a deputy sheriff and kept in a jail cell where they're cared for by the inmates. When they're old enough, the puppies are adopted, but no one wants the rather beat-up mom. Then a woman visits the jail and falls in love with the little white dog with brown spots and takes her home. Day by day, the dog they've named Freckles provides the woman and her husband with clues about her mysterious past.
