I thought we'd reached the epitome of adorable when I saw the photos of the dog that took in a pair of red pandas as her own, but this story might take the cake in the cute department. Two more pooches in China are helping to raise not only their own growing puppies, but a pair of lion cubs, and twin tiger cubs as well! Born earlier this month, the lion and tiger cubs were abandoned by their birth mother, and two hero dog mamas stepped in to help.
We've seen a lot of dogs assume the role of mother for a variety of different animals — from piglets to rabbits — so I guess I shouldn't be surprised at this pairing. Check out a few more photos of the dogs and cubs in the gallery when you read more.
