Bulldog Adopts Six Piglets (Video)

This is one special Mum, her name is “Baby” and she lives at The Lehnitz sanctuary near Berlin in Germany.
“Baby” has been Mum to many different animals from the sanctuary, some she adopts, and others she has nursed. In the video below is “Baby” making sure these six little piglets stay out of trouble.

There is a very good article about Baby in the Mirror, with some great pictures.

    Amazing how material instincts kick in. Interesting how some animals even nurse other species.

    The maternal instinct is very strong, as we keep seeing time after time, even as in this case, between animals of a different species. It’s so beautiful to see,and Babe is an amazing mother! Thanks so much for sharing this one Mags, it was truly heartwarming.

      Hi barb19,
      She certainly is an amazing mother. I think there is still a lot we really don’t know about animals, but the more we do find out the more amazed I am. 🙂
