March 17, 2016

Baby wild animals like Dinozzo, a fox cub whose mother was killed in a road-side collision, often don't stand much of a chance when their parents are taken away from them.

Luckily for this three-week-old fox cub, he was handed over to a vet and then adopted by an animal-loving couple in Germany.

They live with with a beautiful collie named Ziva, whose motherly instincts helped nurse him back to health.

They also own a Bengal cat named Leopold and two adopted piglets. Leopold has also formed an unlikely friendship with the now-recovered fox cub.

The caring dog and cat duo have made Dinozzo feel welcome, and he now uses the cat-door regularly to get in and out of the house.

"Our collie acts as a foster mum for the little ones."

Though Dinozzo is free to roam, he feels like he's just 'one of the family.'

Despite being given free run of the surrounding area, it seems like he prefers staying with his best friends for now.
