Foster mother

A mixed breed farm dog is nursing three tiger cubs who were rejected by their mother shortly after birth. The tigers were born in a zoo in China and have been imaginatively named One, Two, and Three. The black pup on the right is the dog's own puppy. Zoo keepers expect that the dog will nurse the tigers for about a month when their appetites will outgrow her ability to produce enough milk for them. Aren't dogs wonderful?
