Dory is the first pup to be born at the Marine Mammal Rescue Centre. Her mother Donnelly was admitted in critical condition with severe injuries. Staff later discovered that she was pregnant and worked hard to safe both, the mother and her unborn pup. Dory was born 2 months after Donnelly's admission to the rescue centre.
And just like that, Dory is ready for release. Good luck out there, little one!
Dory managed to double her weight in two weeks!
Dory and Donnelly are inseparable, as you would expect! We could watch them all day...
Dory spends very little time exploring away from her mother. She's nursing well and gaining weight. A healthy pup by all appearances!
