Dog adopts baby armadillos

A dog had adopted two orphaned baby armadillos in Brazil.

Dina Alves says her husband found the armadillors after their mother was killed by a tractor in a sugar cane field.

He adopted the little creatures, took them to his home in the southern Brazilian town of Guaporema and began feeding them cow's milk.

But to his surprise his pet dog Faisca became instantly attached to the armadillos and began producing her own milk to nurse them.
