Infant Piglet Who Was Destined To Die Ends Up Being Saved By An Unlikely Hero…

This little piglet was abandoned by her mother and was about to give up on life when Katjinga, a massive eight-year-old Rhodesian Ridgeback farm dog, took matters into her own paws. They called this tiny piglet Paulinchen!

The piglet was in a really bad shape, she was hungry and cold, and moments from death when Katjinga’s people found her. They placed her into the care of their loving dog, who gladly became the piglet’s surrogate mommy. Katjinga instantly fell in love with the two-week old Paulinchen and took care of her.

Paulinchen also tried suckling from her massive new mommy and mommy didn’t mind it at all. Paulinchen wasn’t the only one in her litter, apparently, she has five siblings, but she was the only one abandoned.

Katjinga’s own litter of puppies are now 10 months old, so her people thought that she would be a caring mommy to the tiny piglet. Katjinga started lactating again and started feeding the little piglet. She regards the piglet as her own baby.
