Mama and her "baby"

In a strange turn of events, a baby chimp whose mother died suddenly ended up living with a Mastiff who had just given birth to her own pups.

The combination resulted in nothing short of beautiful.

A Reddit user posted these photos online and here is the explanation of this odd pairing:

After a mother chimpanzee who lived in a zoo died, one of the zoo’s employees took the baby chimp home to care for it. It never crossed his mind that his dog, who had recently given birth, would adopt the chimp and raise it with her pups.

The photos went immediately viral due to the unique and loving bond between the chimp, the mama dog and her cubs .

To her, this baby chimp is just one of the family.  And if you asked the chimp, I’d be willing to bet he’d say the same!
