The Dog That Adopted a Deer

Ludovica the fawn was abandoned by her mother near a farm in Germany. The sisters who run the farm saved the baby deer by feeding her, but did not want her to become too dependent on humans. They kept her outside, although protected by a fence. It was Leo, their dog, who became Ludovica's comforter, protector, and teacher. When she was older, Ludovica was granted freedom to roam, and Leo taught her how to wander in the woods. Now, Ludovica spends most of her time in the woods, hanging out with other deer. But she is still Leo's best friend, and visits the farm whenever the urge strikes. Ludovica is a unique deer living in two worlds. We wish her well, and hope she is a better mother than her own was.
