Litter of orphaned piglets adopted by dog

A dog in Playa Larga, Cuba, has taken on nursing responsibilities for a litter of orphaned piglets.

Linda the dog's owner Ignacio Estevez came up with the idea after the piglets' mother died.

Linda had just given birth to pups and was lactating. Estevez said: "On the first day she was a little hesitant but ended up giving the piglets milk.

"And then a week on, she would arrive on her own volition to feed the them." Estevez added that Linda is managing to balance her parental duties between her own six puppies and the piglets.
