BELMONT COUNTY, Ohio (WTRF) – Every January, we look forward to seeing the first New Year’s baby in the Ohio Valley.

This year there was a blessed event of the K-9 variety in Belmont County, just after the new year began.

The Road Home Animal Project took in a stray dog on New Year’s Eve and just after midnight, that dog gave birth to five healthy pups!

They’ll be available for adoption when they’re eight to ten-weeks old.

The mom is a small Westie Mix, named Cindy Lou Who.
