Gencons applauds these Animal Friends
They have long had the reputation of being Man’s best friend but it turns out that Dogs are best friends with many members of the Animal Kingdom too.
1.Coaley the Great Dane and his baby Chimp .
When Molly Badham and Nathan Evans founded their Monkey sanctuary they weren’t anticipating a certain staff members impact Coaley the Great Dane has helped to care for and nurture baby chimps helping them thrive in what is now one of the largest Primate sanctuaries in the world.
2.Lisha the Labrador retriever bonds with orphaned hippos.
Labrador retriever Lisha has had her hands full in recent years, By the age of 10 she had helped care for and raise 30 orphaned babies of various species. If a baby animal has no parents to care for it it runs the risk of becoming too familiar with humans and forgets animal behaviour. Lisha has helped teach them valuable survival skills.
3.Koa the Golden retriever and her Bunnies.
There is nothing Koa enjoys more than a game of Tag with the Backyard Lizards one day whilst hunting Lizards she found a Litter of wild orphaned rabbits. Koas family decided they would take them in and care for them but Koa the Golden retriever decided it would be she that took the role of main caregiver to the little orphans.
4.Sam the chihuahua and the monkey on his back.
Tiny Sam the Chihuahua became the smallest of our Dog carers to this even smaller marmoset but as Sam only weighed a few pounds himself it was soon time to hand over piggyback duty to a more suitable Golden retriever.
