People Are Falling In Love With This Monkey And Orphaned Puppy. You Are About To See Why…

Earlier this month, in the city of Erode in the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu, a local rhesus macaque monkey came across a puppy and decided to adopt it. The monkey cared for the dog just as he would have cared for his own child, defending it from attacks, feeding it and carrying it around.

This is the tale of the puppy that was rescued by a monkey.

The monkey found the puppy being attacked by other stray dogs. He jumped down from a tree to defend the little guy. He then took a liking to the pup and adopted him.

Whenever it was time to eat, he made sure the puppy always ate first. Isn’t that sweet?

The monkey even groomed the puppy just like he would with his own child. Is he a great foster dad or what?

Local residents were touched by the bond between this unlikely duo, and the pair quickly became local celebrities. People started to leave them offerings of food and marveled at how affectionately the monkey took care of the puppy.

The pair even got some news coverage. Zee News, a major Indian news outlet, reported the following: “People who have seen them spoke of their strong mutual affection and described their bond as the most caring thing in the world – to take care of a puppy in danger and protect him like a parent.”

“Their undying affection gives us a valuable lesson about relationships.”

Sadly, the story takes an unfortunate turn. It seems the puppy and the monkey may have been separated and Forest Department officials might now be in custody of the puppy. This news comes from exclusively Tamil-language new sites that have been very roughly translated via Google Translate, so it is currently unverified.
