A heartwarming story captured the internet when a small piglet and a giant farm dog were found cuddling like family. The piglet, named Paulinchen, was rejected by her own mother and was near death when she was discovered. Fortunately, a surrogate mother, an eight-year-old Rhodesian Ridgeback named Katjinga, stepped in to take care of the little one. It seems that the adoption went smoothly, as Katjinga has taken on motherly duties for the two-week-old piglet, and the two seem to have formed quite the bond. It’s impressive how the dog took in the piglet as one of her own, and we can’t help but feel touched by this incredible story.

A little piglet was discovered by property developer, Roland, when it was left alone by its family after being born. The piglet, named Paulinchen, was struggling and weak, but quickly found comfort with her new adoptive mother. The pigs are allowed to roam freely on the land, and the sow had given birth to five piglets in a nearby forest. Paulinchen was all alone until she was rescued by her new caretaker who noticed she was incredibly cold.
During feeding time, a piglet that was abandoned by its mother found a new parent in the form of a canine. The person who found the piglet was worried that local foxes would harm the baby, so they decided to take it inside their home and give it to Katjinga, a dog who had just finished raising her own litter. Surprisingly, Katjinga took to the piglet immediately and started caring for it as if it was one of her own puppies. She even began lactating again to provide milk for the piglet, treating it like her own baby. It seems that Katjinga might just be the best mother of the year.
