Fans of the rescue organization, Rocky Ridge Refuge, are frequently treated to priceless photos of the sanctuary's residents.
Recently, founder Janice Wolf, posted heartwarming images of a rather unlikely friendship which has formed between an extra-large rodent, and a litter of pint-sized puppies.
The rodent, a Capybara, named "Cheesecake," seems to have appointed herself as surrogate mom to a litter of orphaned Dachshund mix puppies which recently arrived to the sanctuary.
In early March, the puppies were discovered inside of a Tupperware container outside of a church. Some found homes right away, but the remaining puppies were fortunate enough to make their way to Wolf's sanctuary, which is well-known for taking in a menagerie of beautiful creatures.
Just over a week ago, on a sunshine-filled afternoon, Wolf put Cheesecake in charge of the puppies; judging by the photos captured that day, it was love at first sight.
Cheesecake obviously adores the puppies, and they, her...unconditional love at its finest.
