Dog Adopts Baby Goat That Was Rejected By Her Mother, Takes Care Of Her Like One Of Her Puppies

Rita the baby goat was rejected by her mother at the moment of her birth. However, Blizzie the dog involved to take care of her. Now she feeds her together with her four pups; just like she is one of the family members, indiscriminately.

Eighteen-year-old farmer Glori Rushing told Metro UK that the moment Rita’s mother, Smore, rejected her, Blizzie took over: she jumped into the coop and took her to bed with her own pups, whom she had given birth to a few days earlier.

The three-year-old dog and four-week-old Rita formed a beautiful relationship.

“Blizzie recently had a litter of puppies and her pen has a fence about six feet long. She climbed over it and went to pick up Rita and put her with her own puppies,” she added.

As Blizzie took care of Rita due to her nature, Gloria decided to let them stay together. “She was doing an amazing job,” she said. She had enough milk to feed them all.

Glori and her husband Nathaniel tried to feed her with a bottle, but she preferred her lovely mother’s milk. At first, they tried to reunite Rita with her own mother, but when she continuously rejected her, they allowed Blizzie to adopt her.

“Blizzie’s supposed to help take care of the farm and the goats, but I’ve never seen her take one like this before. I was giving Rita a bottle every two hours because I didn’t know how good dog milk would be for a goat, but instead she just went to Blizzie. Rita and the other puppies get along so well and she is very good with them, but she has these long, big paws. She acts like she’s one of the puppies,” she said.
