This amazing adoption story took place in 2007… Jeanette Young adopted the baby squirrels that were abandoned near by, however it is her Chihuahua dog that is taking care of the baby squirrels like its own and feeding the baby squirrels.
Derek Varnes who was working for a tree cutting company found the squirrels’ nest. If the babies squirrels aren’t in the nest their mom will not take care of them… So most of the time they will abandon them. Derek didn’t want them to die, so he gave the squirrels away to his fiancée’s mother Jeanette Young.
After Jeanette took the baby squirrels to home, the Chihuahua dog started to lick these puppies to clean them and also began to nurse them right away. It seems that the mother instinct took over her.
