This is cute enough to melt our cold black heart!
An 8-year-old Rhodesian Ridgeback, Katjinga, took a liking to Paulinchen, a little pot-bellied piglet after she was abandoned by her family in Germany.
Katjinga's owners breed a pair of Vietnamese pigs and rescued the runt of the litter after seeing she had been rejected by her parents and the rest of her litter!
Katjinga had puppies of her own 10 months ago so her owners thought she might take on the responsibility to care for little Paulinchen the Pig and sure enough the two are now inseparable. Katjinga even started nursing again for the little piggy!
Just like Babe!
