A mother gave birth to 5 puppies near my apartment, which is in an isolated area, a short while ago. I only noticed them 4 nights ago and started to feed her 2 chicken drumsticks everyday which is no where near enough but it was all I could do. She gave birth to one brown puppy, 3 which are a mixture of brown and white and one completely black which is the odd one out. I didn't notice anything odd yesterday but today I noticed that she moved her all puppies to a new new location, only a few feet away from the old one, except her black puppy which was left all alone. I picked it up and put it with its brothers and sisters and that point is started drizzling. I came back after 2 hours and found that the mother had moved all her puppies again to a warmer location except for the black one. It was left out in the cold under the rain and it screeching while it's mother was only 5 steps away and seemed to pay it no mind. Clearly she has decided to abandon this one. I picked her up, brought her home and warmed her up with a blanket but I don't know what I should do. It does not seem to have any congenital abnormalities. I don't know if it is sick or if the mother just can't take care of all five so she had to abandon one. There is no vet out here where I live and definitely no store that sells puppy milk formula. What do I do with it and what do I feed it?

Call the nearest dog rescue center and ask them for advice. They deal with this kind of case all of the time.

    Depends what country this person is in. Not every place is fortunate enough to have these things.
