Doting boxer cares for eight needy piglets as her own
A litter of rescue piglets is motherless no more, thanks to a boxer named Treasure who’s taken the group under her care.
Per Australia’s 9News, the unlikely family resides at Spectrum Plants in Wongawallan, Queensland, a plant nursery and petting zoo owned by Wes Trevor.
As Trevor tells 9News, Treasure took to the group of needy, malnourished piglets immediately. Since allowing them to nurse, Treasure and her piglets have been inseparable.
Although it’s unusual for a boxer to nurse piglets, Trevor says he has the blessings of a veterinarian.
It’s a happy turn of events for Treasure who, per 9News, is herself a rescue, taken off the street last year.
