Cubbing together! Old English sheepdog gives puppy love to abandoned lion cub
A tiny lion cub has been adopted by an Old English Sheepdog after being rejected by its mother at birth.
Vulnerable lion cub, Parys, was left scared and alone when he was abandoned by his mum, Ela, shortly after being born at a private zoo in Wojciechów, Poland.
Zoo worker, Ewa Wiktorowska, took little Parys under her wing and bought him home to live with her and her Old English Sheepdog, Carmen – who had recently given birth to five puppies.
The caring canine immediately took to Parys and it wasn’t long before the cub started cuddling up to its new found family and even suckling from Carmen.
Since settling into his new home Parys has put on plenty of weight and enjoys playing with his five new siblings.
