Dog Adopts Panther Cub Into Adorable Mixed Litter

Here's an oldie-but-cutie, in which a Rhodesian ridgeback dog adopts a panther cub.

It's a heartwarming display that reminds us that caring knows no bounds. The mother licks the panther cub clean, and then feeds her.

The video, posted by YouTube user UZoo in 2008, had more than 750,000 views as of press time, and that number will definitely continue to rise.

Interspecies mommying gets people's attention, but it's not just because it's adorable. When animals show altruistic behavior, it reminds us that people should also aspire to do more good.

Nothing warms the heart like animals that should naturally be eating each other, abandoning their instincts and becoming friends.

It’s adorable, inspires us to reach out to others we though we had nothing in common with, and gives us the emotional sustenance needed to survive our journey through the often dark and twisted territory known as “the world wide web.”

    I loved this story.if animals can show so much love to know from instinct that that wasn't one of her own and still let it nurse.People could take a lesson from this.the animal in this case had more common sense than a human would
