French bulldog befriends 6 wild boar piglets

It's an unusual animal friendship you don't see every day. A French bulldog in a small German town has befriended six wild boar piglets.

When the piglets arrived at an animal sanctuary a few days ago, the 8-year-old dog, named Baby, ran over and started snuggling the pigs and keeping them warm.

The bulldog has since stayed by their side, making sure they're OK.

Baby apparently has strong maternal instincts and has already helped bring up cats, raccoons and other animals at the sanctuary.
