A mother’s love has no limits: it can be present in all animals, such as in this adorable dog who happily took in an orphaned baby squirrel.
Everly was the friendly and loving pit bull who was chosen by a little baby squirrel to be her foster mother. Since Everly was already a very affectionate dog by nature, it was no surprise that she didn’t hesitate to take in the baby squirrel that needed her.
People shouldn’t be surprised, as care and kindness are part of the pit bull breed. While most think of the breed’s reputation for being wild animals, this is not actually the case at all. Pit bulls are very calm and kind animals by nature. In fact, during the 19th century, the breed was often referred to as “nanny dogs” because they were loyal, kind, and patient pets that were kept around children.
And Everly is not lacking in any of these wonderful traits, as she is a dog who loves everyone and makes friends wherever she goes, even with other animals.
Maybe this little baby squirrel could feel that, and decided to choose Everly as the perfect foster mother. Either way, the dog happily welcomed the squirrel. And Morgan Joy Groves, the owner of Everly, was not at all surprised by her dog’s reaction to the furry foster baby.
The two of them came across the squirrel while walking and it was completely alone.
As Everly and her owner continued walking, the squirrel continued to follow them, eventually ending up at home with the couple.
Everly was very happy to receive him after that, and the little squirrel did not hesitate to approach Everly. In fact, the little squirrel showed no fear by climbing on top of her and enjoying a nap together.
From there, Everly and her foster baby became inseparable.
The sweet dog was very diligent in taking care of him. But even though she was a great foster mother, Everly couldn’t keep the baby squirrel forever. And finally, the little baby squirrel had to go live in a wildlife center where it could receive the best care.
Groves and Everly said goodbye to the baby squirrel, who left to grow up in the company of two other squirrels, and eventually, the trio will be released back into the wild when it grows up and is ready.
