Dog Adopts A 3-Week-Old Baby Fox After His Mother Was Killed By A Car

Baby wild animals like Dinozzo, a fox cub whose mother was killed in a road-side collision, often don’t stand much of a chance when their parents are taken away from them. Luckily for this three-week-old fox cub, he was handed over to a vet and then adopted by an animal-loving couple in Germany with a beautiful collie dog named Ziva, whose motherly instincts helped nurse him back to health.

Ziva belongs to Werner and Angelika Schmaing, a couple living in Oberscheld, Germany that also owns a Bengal cat named Leopold and two adopted piglets. Leopold has also formed an unlikely friendship with the now-recovered fox cub. The caring dog and cat duo have made Dinozzo feel welcome, and he now uses the cat-door regularly to get in and out of the house. Despite being given free run of the surrounding area, it seems like he prefers staying with his best friends for now!

He also made friends with their Bengal cat, Leopold

“Ziva and Leopold fell in love with the little fox immediately”

“Our collie acts as a foster mum for the little ones”

“The interaction of animals is very much like siblings in a family”

“They are mostly peaceful, often playful and sometimes tired – sleeping together in one place”
