When a Puppy Lost Its Family, a Caring Dog Took It Under Her Wing and Adopted It as Her Own

Meet Katjinga, a Rhodesian Ridgeback dog who has become an unlikely mother figure to a two-week-old piglet named Paulinchen. Unfortunately, Paulinchen lost her real mother, but luck was on her side as Katjinga decided to step in and adopt her. From the moment they met, the loving dog treated Paulinchen like one of her own, creating a special bond that transcends their different species. In fact, they have even snuggled up together and Katjinga has nursed the little pig. Their heartwarming story is a testament to the power of love and compassion.

Roland’s viral social media posts featuring an endearing couple have been capturing the hearts of netizens. Among the photos that have taken the internet by storm is one depicting Paulinchen’s attempt at nursing from his significantly larger mom.

Roland and his wife Edit, who are from Hoerstel in Germany, have taken in two animals, who live together in a huge 20-acre field. The creatures are named Katjinga, and they have become the Adam family’s adopted pets.

Roland, a real estate developer, stumbled upon a tiny piglet that was struggling to survive in the absence of her family who had left her behind after birth. The poor creature was extremely weak and helpless, but Roland decided to take her under his wing and care for her.

Roland mentioned that their property is inhabited by wild pigs, and one of the sows gave birth to five piglets in the nearby woods. Roland found a lone piglet named Paulinchen who was feeling quite cold when he picked her up.

Roland shared that he thought the piglet would have been taken by some foxes in the area, but instead, he brought it home to Katjinga. He trusted her and believed that he could take on the responsibility of nurturing the piglet since he had just finished taking care of a litter that is now 10 months old.

Roland expressed that Katjinga is an exceptional mother who showed affection towards the little pig. She immediately cleaned and cared for it as if it were one of her own puppies. After a couple of days, she even produced milk to nurse the pig. It was evident that Katjinga considered the pig her own offspring.
