When Wes Trevor, the owner of the ‘Spectrum Plants Gold Coast’ in Australia, found out about eight tiny pigs in poor health, he did not hesitate to take them in as his own. At first, he fed the piglets with special food that had the proper nutrients to get them back on their feet. But then something unexpected happened.
Treasure, a former stray boxer breed dog, noticed the pigs and her motherhood instincts took over. She started caring for the piglets as if they were her own babies. Soon she even started producing milk and the tiny pigs were happy to have a new dog mama.
Wes was not sure if that’s healthy for the dog and pigs, but after checking with a vet, he was advised that it’s all great as long as the pigs get additional nutrition and does not hurt the dog.
This beautiful story once again proves that dogs are incredibly caring, amazing creatures.
