(Scroll down for video) In Canada, a dog’s motherly instinct kicked in after hearing puppies crying in a kennel.

Surveillance video at a St. Albert boarding kennel, showed the dog breaking out of its kennel to help puppies in need.

The owner of Barkers Pet Motel and Grooming, Sandi Aldred, said that the dog took extreme measures to help comfort the puppies that were also at the facility.

The Australian Shepherd named Maggie, has been adopted from the Humane Society of Canada. Maggie’s own puppies were taken away and adopted just two weeks earlier.

When the dog heard the puppies in distress, it went to comfort them. Maggie sat at the door of the puppies’ kennel until Aldred arrived.

The dog then jumped around until Aldred allowed it to stay inside the kennel with the puppies.
