Dog Takes Care of Tiger Cubs – level 1

20-03-2017 07:00

The Cincinnati Zoo in the USA has three Malaysian tiger cubs. Their mother ignores them. The zookeepers must take care of the cubs.

An Australian dog becomes their nanny. His job is to be a resident companion at the zoo. He cuddles the babies. He is nice to them. He lets the cubs move all over him. He stops them if they are too rough.

The dog can help other baby animals, too.

Difficult words: cub (a baby animal of a big cat or a bear), resident companion (someone who lives with someone else to help him or her), cuddle (touch nicely), rough (not nice).

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