German Shepherd nurses tiger cubs in China

January 20, 2012 12:00:00 AM PST
A German Shepherd is going above and beyond the call of duty as an adoptive mom by nursing three tiger cubs.

Three tiger cubs in China are being looked after by the dog.

The white tiger cubs were their mother's third pregnancy in 18 months, and keepers say the mama tiger wasn't able to take care of the cubs.

The wildlife park brought the cubs to the German Shepherd to see if she could help, and she took them under her wing.
