Mama dog takes care of abandoned piglet

Mother Nature is amazing!!

From the owner of the two animals…

The pigs run wild on our land and the sow had given birth to a litter of five in our forest. I found Paulinchen [the piglet] all alone and when I lifted her up she was really cold.

I felt sure some local foxes would have taken the little pig that very night so I took it into my house and gave her to Katjinga [the dog].

She had just finished with a litter of her own, who are now 10 months, so I thought there was a chance she might take on the duties of looking after her.

Katjinga is the best mother you can imagine. She immediately fell in love with the piggy. Straight away she started to clean it like it was one of her own puppies.

Days later she started lactating again and giving milk for the piggy. She obviously regards it now as her own baby.
