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. You can follow Leo and Ludovica at Instagram.#fawn #dog #deer #interspeciesfriendship
The Pit Bull That Raised a Raccoon
A baby raccoon later named Eto was found in a car's wheel well last year. He was taken the House of Oakley, a home in the woods of British Columbia where wild animals can be fostered. Eto immediately took up with the family's pit bull Ashlyn the Wonder Dog, who had already been a foster mom to quite a few raccoons and squirrels. The pit bull and the baby raccoon bonded quite well. Ashlyn is a free-range dog, and took it upon herself to show Eto love and affection, and how to navigate his way through the forest. As he grew, Eto spent more and more time outdoors, learning the ways of dogs and raccoons. Eto has since transitioned to living in the wild just fine.

This Staffordshire Bull Terrier and a Magpie are Best Friends
Juliette Wells and Reece Mortensen are a Gold Coast-based Australian couple. While at a dog park with their easygoing English Staffordshire bull terrier named Peggy, they rescued a newborn Australian magpie who was all alone on the ground encrusted in burs, grass, and twigs.They noticed that the magpie was just a few weeks old and that the flock parents were completely ignoring her. Molly was the name given to her by the couple when they were able to bring her home to heal.Peggy was initially afraid of Molly, according to Wells, because of a previous incident in which she was attacked by magpies. However, as time passed, the two grew to like each other and would lie beside each other and snuggle. Peggy has also saved Molly thanks to her fictitious pregnancy, as said by Wells. "It is very remarkable. Peggy's vets confirmed this and said it's normal when an animal is caring for anything ". According to Wells, "To assist in keeping this fledgling bird alive, Peggy provided milk." This, along with other delicacies typical of a wild bird's diet, kept the rescued magpie alive. Later, Peggy's veterinary team performed a surgery to assist her in ceasing to lactate.Since then, the two have become inseparable and consider one another as family.
