A hen in China has reportedly adopted two orphaned puppy dogs after their mother died. Owner Cao Fengying, of Majiaqiao village, Jiashan town, says the hen was best friends with the puppy’s mother.

But the dog was poisoned just ten days after giving birth to puppies, reports Today Morning.

Cao said: “The hen and the dog had been friends for two years. They would never fight but just play together. I thought the puppies would die after their mother went but the next morning I discovered that the puppies had gone missing. Then I heard the hen clucking in her coop. I looked over and saw that the little puppies were underneath the hen.”

Cao believes she is simply looking out for her friend’s pups.
