Stray Shih Tzu Finds a Tiny Kitten and Cares for It until Help Arrives

We tend to believe that cats and dogs despise each other but this story will dispel the notion that they don’t care for each other. Not unlike this orphaned baby chimpanzee that was adopted by a dog, the following shih tzu cares for a kitten before and after a rescue and it will warm your heart.

Animal control officers in Anderson, S.C. responded to a call of a dog barking in a ravine behind a local Home Depot. One of the animal control officer’s on the scene, Michelle Smith, thought the dog was stuck in a ravine but as she climbed down she found the dog tangled in a mess of briars.

After closer inspection, she also noticed that the dog was nursing a little friend. A small cat was suckling milk from the dog and the dog did everything to protect and nurse the little kitten.

The Shih Tzu took care of the abandoned kitten while help arrived.
