Surviving as a baby animal without its parents is never easy. Babies of any species are fragile and lack the necessary survival skills. They require food, warmth, protection, and care from adult individuals who are not usually members of the same clan. It’s difficult to believe, yet situations like these really occur. Scroll down to read the entire story from beginning to conclusion!
Roland Adam, 54, a property developer, and his wife Edit, 44, a bank employee, raised a pair of breeding Vietnamese pigs in Hoerstel, Germany, in 2009. They had a litter of five in Adam’s woodland. Then Roland discovered Paulinchen, a two-week-old small pot-bellied pig who was all alone and freezing. He carried her home because he was scared foxes might chase her down when night fell.
Adam’s rescued dog, Katjinga, an eight-year-old Rhodesian Ridgeback, had recently finished with her own ten-month-old litter, so Roland assumed the mother canine could care for the piglet. Surprisingly, he was correct. Katjinga fell in love with Paulinchen right away and pampered her as if she were family.
The two creatures shared a massive 20-acre farm, one of Adam’s possessions. When the baby was hungry, the wolfing mother cleaned her bacon and gave her milk. Paulinchen nuzzled up to her adoptive mother after she had finished her meal and had a good night’s sleep. The enormous farm dog and the little piglet nestled up as though they were mother dog and piggy baby.
The tale about the lucky piglet that went viral at the time was charming and touching. Internet viewers are captivated by the pooch’s maternal love and compassion. They were mainly heartened, but some were concerned about the tiny piggy girl growing up believing she was a dog. Furthermore, Ridgebacks are a potentially aggressive breed, so keep a watch on the little grunter.
Nobody could deny Katjinga earned the title of Mom Of The Year, and everyone wished her and her children the best. So, how about you? Share your thoughts in the comments section below! If you enjoyed the tale, please like and share it with your animal-loving friends, and visit our website for more.
