Dog Becomes Mama To Three Tiger Cubs

CANEY, Kan. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Three white tiger cubs have found a loving mommy in a cuddly canine.

Tom Harvey, owner of Safari Zoological Park in Caney, Kansas, had a dilemma when one of his white tigers rejected her newborn cubs.

Luckily, his golden retriever Izzy filled her furry shoes.

He says, “The cubs are only nine days old, but so far Izzy’s been a fantastic surrogate mother. She’s the reason they’re still alive after their mother abandoned them.”

Izzy has taken on her mommy duties, cleaning and nursing the cute cubs, and even comforting them with lots of cuddling when they cry.

It’s not just the cubs Izzy has saved.

With operating costs being so high, the park was dangerously close to extinction. But now, people are flocking to meet Izzy and the cubs.

Harvey explains, “I believe in miracles and that God had something to do with this. I had given us until August 1 for something to save us, and on that day we were on national television.”
