Baby Orphaned Chimp Gets Adopted by Dog

Four years ago, a chimpanzee at a Russian zoo passed away and left behind a sweet little baby chimpanzee. A zoo keeper realized the little one wouldn’t live long without special care so she brought it to her home. He never would have survived on his own and needed help to remain healthy just like these baby sea turtles received help from volunteers.

She didn’t know how her Mastiff would react to the small chimp but surprisingly, they started getting along. The Mastiff recently had a small little of pups and she would treat the chimp as her own and would give him the love he needed.

This baby chimp with big brown eyes didn’t have a mother but was taken in by a zookeeper.
