Dogs Trust Leeds welcome Christmas miracle puppies named after Santa's reindeer

A miracle litter of eight white puppies have been born just five days before Christmas at the Dogs Trust in Leeds.

Rescue Lurcher Mrs Claus gave birth to her newborn puppies who have been named Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen after Santa's reindeer.

All of the puppies are a snowy shade of white and four-year-old Mrs Claus is nurturing them in their temporary home at the Dogs Trust Leeds.

"It’s the 40th anniversary of our slogan a dog is for life, not just for Christmas, so we’d like to remind everyone that if you are thinking about getting a dog in 2019, please carefully consider the responsibilities of dog ownership before bringing a four-legged friend into your home.”
