Beautiful Dog Caring For Adorable Piglets Proves Love Knows No Species

By Briana Hansen

The Edgar's Mission sheepdog, Ruby, has taken on a lot of responsibilities on the rescue farm. She put herself in charge of all guest greetings, she keeps tabs on the spirits of all the farm workers, and keeps her ears perked for any other task that may come calling.

So when a young sow and her new piglets arrived to the farm before Christmas, Ruby decided to help raise the young family. That means she spends a lot of time cuddling and playing with them. And watching it all go down is too cute to handle.

Piglets, puppy and play! What more could you want! If you <3 it, please share it :) “If we could live happy and healthy lives without harming others… why wouldn’t we?” Edgar's Mission

Seeing the sweet little piglets give the patient Ruby so much affection is heartwarming. She happily rolls over when they curiously poke at her. And she playfully encourages them to wrestle, not at all minding that she's outnumbered.

These special piggies are little miracles. After their mother was sent to the pound while heavily pregnant, she ended up giving birth there, and sadly lost some of her little ones. But these three survived, and the whole group was rescued by Edgar's Mission.

Now, they live on a farm and hang out with their best friend and family dog nurse, Ruby.

Ruby is no stranger to being rescued. The sweet dog has a gut-wrenching story of her first owner treating her terribly. But, she was saved by the same farm and now dishes out love to everybody – no matter their species.

And, while Ruby has a naturally loving nature, it's obvious she has a special bond with these little piglets.
