Dog Adopts Piglets – level 2

11-05-2021 15:00

In Cuba, a pig gave birth to a litter of piglets but died afterwards. A man collected the piglets and brought them home.

He put the piglets together with his dog who was feeding her pups. He wanted to see if the dog would accept the piglets. On the first day, she was a little hesitant, but then she ended up giving them milk. She now feeds her own babies as well as the adoptive ones.

The dog is now something of a local attraction in the Cuban town.

Difficult words: piglet (a young pig), pup (a young dog), hesitant (not sure).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
