Baby fox gets nursed back to health by an unlikely foster mom

Baby wild animals like Dinozzo, a fox cub whose mother was killed in a road-side collision, often don’t stand much of a chance when their parents are taken away from them. 
Luckily for this three-week-old fox cub, he was handed over to a vet and then adopted by an animal-loving couple in Germany with a beautiful collie dog named Ziva, whose motherly instincts helped nurse him back to health.

Though Dinozzo is free to roam, he still feels like he’s just ‘one of the dogs’.

“The interaction of animals is very much like siblings in a family.”

“They are mostly peaceful, often playful and sometimes tired – sleeping together in one place.”

The family also owns a Bengal cat, named Leopold, who has also formed an unlikely friendship with the fox.

The dog and cat duo have made Dinozzo feel welcome, and he now uses the cat-door regularly to get in and out of the house
