Chihuahua Nurses Kittens

Posted: Updated:
Terrell, TX -

A Chihuahua and her two babies are making people ooh and aww.

She was abandoned in front of the Terrell, Texas animal shelter, tied to a pole with a box right next to her.

Terrell police officer Steven Johns took the three animals out of the 4th of July heat and gave them food, water and shelter.

Much to his surprise, he found the mama dog nursing 2 kittens instead of two puppies.

They're now settling in at a foster home.

Mama dog keeps a close eye on her little ones... responding to their cries... cleaning them up...and even nursing them.

All three are awaiting permanent homes.
