Dog Cares for Injured Piglet

More on PawNation: Dogs, Farm Animals, Heart-Warming, Odd Animal Friends, Weird
Mu Shu the piglet had fallen off of a livestock truck in Kansas when Shane Tonn found her on the road bruised and unconscious. Luckily for Mu Shu, Tonn and his family run a vet hospital and immediately took the battered piglet in. Tonn told WXFT that he did not believe she was going to make it through the first 48 hours, but Mu Shu proved him wrong.

When Mu Shu began her recovery, Tonn's Golden Retriever, Hunter, took to her side. He began to look after the little piglet. Now partially blind, the Mu Shu gets around with the help of her new furry, four-legged friend.

The Tonn family have since adopted Mu Shu as their own. She and Hunter have become inseparable, and we have a feeling everyone will live happily ever after.

That is so sweet... I had a pot belly pig (Clydee) for 19 years and he was raised with my dobermans. Out lived them, and then lived with my next trio of jips and even a Black Mouth Cur which isn't supposed to like any other animal but dogs. They all loved each other.. We had to put him down when he couldn't eat by himself or stand up without help. :( Broke my heart. I miss him everyday... It's wonderful to see a nice story about pigs... Anyone who is thinking about buying a Pot Belly/MIniature Pig REALLY needs to do their research. They are not uncomplicated animals. Males must be neutered so they will not sharpen their tusk and excuse my frankness, but (make love) to everything in the house...lol and the females must be spayed to prevent them from going into heat MONTHLY which will cause them to be REALLY aggressive and urinate in the house. Now, if you have them fixed they are sweet, smart, loving animals. PLEASE read on how to keep their weight down and DO NOT FEED THEM DOGFOOD!! Now that is off my chest!! Enjoy!! Love, Peace and Chicken Grease People...

I think it's sweet but the number one killer of pet pigs is death by dog....please be careful. I can't hear another story about a poor pig being attacked by the family dog who was supposedly best buds with it.

So nice to see animals being treated with care, respect and allowed to love each other. Both puppy and piglet are cuties. :)
