dog_lion_cubs1I couldn’t resist putting this on here, such a great story and gorgeous pics!

From ninemsn:

A stray dog has saved the lives of three lion cubs and a tiger after becoming their surrogate mother at China’s Hefei Zoo.

The black mongrel has been licking, cleaning and feeding the cubs since June after they were rejected by their mothers.

She will reportedly feed her adopted babies for a month until they outgrow her milk supply.
