Video was rolling as the puppies were brought into the pen in a carrier. One of the workers is seen taking each puppy out of the carrier, one by one. The mother pup's curiosity is piqued as the worker shows her each pup and she comes over to investigate.

As one commenter noted on the Facebook post, the mother's personality completely changes from terrified to excited as her tail begins to wag and she begins to interact with the puppies. They begin to nurse before she gets a chance to calm down.

"We captured the moment when sad and scared mom got to see her puppies again. Tears of joy all around at this happy reunion," the shelter posted on its page.
