FORGET THE THREE little pigs hiding from the big bad wolf. These six little pigs have found a new friend in a maternal French bulldog named Baby.

The Lehnitz animal sanctuary outside Berlin says Baby took straight to the wild boar piglets when they were brought in last Saturday, three days old and shivering from cold.

Sanctuary worker Norbert Damm said yesterday that as soon as the furry striped piglets were brought in, Baby ran over and started snuggling them and keeping them warm, even though they’re almost her size.

Damm says the piglets’ mother was likely killed by a hunter and the litter was found abandoned in a forest.

The piglets are being bottle-fed and should be released to a nature reserve in about three months when they can feed themselves.
