A Mom Of A Different Species Loves Abandoned Puppies Like Her Own

The Capybara is the world’s largest species of rodent, with an average weight of 77 to 146 pounds. They’re also surprisingly sweet, like to cuddle, are incredibly social and want to eat all of your food.

Sounds exactly like a dog, right?


So it’s no surprise that one Capybara, named Cheesecake, is proudly serving as a foster mom to a litter of puppies at Rocky Ridge Animal Rescue. Watch the adorable story of their unlikely family below.
