Animals, unlike humans, never hesitate to help one another. Dogs, on the other hand, appear to be not only the most selfless animals, but also the most selfless beings on the planet. Men’s best friend has proven to have the gentlest soul on numerous occasions, and this caring pittie is no exception.
Three helpless baby raccoons lost their mother, but a sweet dog named Ashlyn provided them with the love and comfort they needed. Initially perplexed, the adorable pit bull eventually adopted the tiny creatures, cared for them, and raised them as if they were her own children. She’s now getting them ready to return to the wild, where they belong.
Rain, Storm, and Hailey were only a few weeks old when their mom passed tragically. The tiny raccoons, alone and helpless, seek refuge in the backyard of a Canadian family. Thankfully, they wouldn’t have to change their lives for the rest of their lives if they made that decision! The caring family, who also owns a pit bull, fed the poor baby raccoons by hand at first, but then they realized Ashlyn could be a great adoptive mother for them and decided to give it a try.
Ashlyn was initially perplexed about how to deal with a mother’s responsibilities, but things have since changed. The gentle pit bull’s maternal instincts began to kick in, and they gradually began to resemble a large happy family.
“When the trio first arrived, my dog Ashlyn was a little unsure,” the dog’s mother, Ketie, wrote on Instagram. “However, after a few days, she’s adopted them as if they were her own puppies.”
Despite the fact that Ashlyn and her adoptive children are an adorable family, the pit bull and Katie do their best to teach the baby raccoons how to survive in the wild. Regardless of how sweet they are, they are still wild animals, so Rain, Storm, and Hailey will return to the wild sooner or later, and they must be prepared!
The three rescued raccoons have made incredible progress thus far, and the family has even set up an Instagram account to keep anyone interested in the baby raccoons’ rehabilitation up to date. Katie said in a Facebook video shared by The Dodo, “We’re just here to try and teach them the life skills they’ll need to be able to survive and thrive in the wild.”
