Rescued Greyhound Returns Favor, Becomes Surrogate Mother

When police found Jasmine she was shivering, filthy and malnourished. The greyhound dog had been dumped in a garden shed and left to die. Jasmine was brought to the Nuneaton and Warwickshire Wildlife Sanctuary, where she was slowly nursed back to health. Since her rescue, Jasmine seems to be giving back what she has received, acting as a surrogate mother for all manner of animals brought to the shelter. She is currently caring for tiny Bramble, an 11-week-old roe deer fawn found semi-conscious in a nearby field. The doe is her 50th adoptee; over the past five years Jasmine has cared for five fox cubs, four badger cubs, 15 chicks, eight guinea pigs, two stray puppies and even 15 rabbits. The rabbits may be the most astonishing, since greyhounds are trained to chase rabits - not be mother to them.

Geoff Grewcock, who runs the sanctuary, said: "She simply dotes on the animals as if they were her own, it's incredible to see. Having been neglected herself, it's a real surprise to see her show so much warmth and affection to other creatures." Until she is old enough to be released back into the wild, Bramble will continue to be cared for by Jasmine. Geoff added: "They are inseparable at the moment, the tiny doe walks between her legs and they keep kissing each other."

I remember reading about this on Cuteoverload a few weeks ago.
Very sweet and touching.
Poor pup..... hope the a-holes who abused her got what they deserve.

It annoys me when I read criticism of this site. It's free, informative and entertaining. If you've seen the story before then just move on to the next one! Why do you feel the need to moan about it?

Amen Marcus21- By far most sites I visit come up with some degree of old stuff. So if you don't like it because you seen it before somewhere else, perhaps move on? Or even more outlandish: Get away from your computer because perhaps you've been here so long that topics start to repeat? They say that there also is life out-side your computer................. Well, I'm not sure, but that is what they say anyhow. ;-)

To me, this perhaps old story comes exactly at the time that I'm in a discussion with someone about the if fulfilling of karma is something strictly for humans, or that it applies to any living creature. This dog seems to be an illustration of my stance that all creatures can make karmic jumps in their developments.

The Interweb is vast and deep. Some of our posts are cutting edge, some aren't. It's the nature of blogging, I think. You can't be ahead in all of the posts ... ;)

If there is repeat information, I just go onto the next post. This info was new to me since I havn't checked out cuteoverload in ages.

This is sweet, and it's nice that she's helping these animals survive. I wonder if it will affect their reproductive success. Some animals reared by other species don't try to mate with their own species when they reach adulthood, they go for the species they were raised by or get rejected by their own. That's why some zoo workers dress up as the species they're raising or use puppets, and scent themselves...at least with birds. I wonder if any of these animals will go for greyhounds.
