Tigers and a Dog – level 2

29-06-2021 15:00

A dog in Germany is helping to look after tiger cubs. Their mother abandoned them in a safari park in northern Germany. Their names are Peach and Pearl.

A zookeeper named Jeanette took the abandoned cubs into her home. She gave them some milk. Now, the cubs live in her living room.

The dog Leon quickly adopted the cubs. He is like their teacher. The cubs want to be near him all of the time. He tries to educate them. They spend some time together. They also play together.

Jeanette and her dog Leon looked after tiger and lion cubs before. She warns that they are not good pets. When they grow up, they can be dangerous. Soon, the cubs will go to another place, but for now, they are still friends with the dog.

Difficult words: abandon (when a mother leaves her cub/baby), cubs (baby animals such as tigers, lions and bears), warn (inform about danger),

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