Dog Nurses Rescued Piglet Back to Health

A unlikely partnership formed between a dog and a rescued piglet is the basis for this adorable report from FOX25 news.

Apparently, Hunter and Mu Shu were introduced to one another after Hunter’s owner found the baby pig injured on the side of a Kansas road. It is assumed that the piglet was bounced out of a livestock truck and suffered injuries from tumbling on the pavement.

‘Mu Shu’ could not have found herself in better hands – Hunter’s family runs an area vet hospital. They took Mu Shu in and noticed that as she started her recovery, Hunter seemed to feel compelled to look after her. They say he acted as a guide for the partially blind youngster, leading Mu Shu around the clinic. Now he bathes her, plays with her, and the two have even been seen cuddling together for naps.

In fact, the pair have hit it off so well that Mu Shu has found a permanent home: Hunter’s family has decided to adopt the pig, saying that after all of this time spent together, Hunter and his new friend are inseparable.
