Cheesecake the Capybara and Her Foster Puppies

At PawNation, we have the pleasure of coming across some majorly aww-inducing animal foster families fairly often, but the recent tale of Cheesecake the capybara and her litter of abandoned Dachshund puppies may just take the ... cheesecake.



The puppies were found dumped in a sealed bin behind a church in Arkansas. Thankfully, the innocent dogs were found before they were seriously harmed, and then were taken to the Rocky Ridge Refuge. There, Cheesecake was waiting for them.

This large rodent has a even bigger maternal side. Cheesecake has fostered and showered love on several of Rocky Ridge's newcomers and these needy puppies are no exception. The Capybara has become devoted to giving the little hot dogs the affection and care they are missing out from their real mom. Don't believe us? Watch the video and be amazed at how much adorableness you can take in.

While this is cute, Cupcake seems to be merely tolerating the pups, not 'showering' them with attention.
