jasmine the dog, wonder mum.

I simply can't resist passing along the touching story of Jasmine. Jasmine the greyhound was found seven years ago by the English police, abandoned, cold, filthy and malnourished.

Taken to the Nuneaton and Warwickshire Wildlife Sanctuary and nurtured to good health, she has since taken care of 15 rabbits, 15 chicks, 8 guinea pigs, 5 fox cubs, 4 badger cubs, 2 stray puppies and a tiny roe deer fawn.

"She simply dotes on the animals as if they were her own, it's incredible to see," says Geoff Grewcock, who runs the sanctuary. "She takes all the stress out of them, and it helps them to not only feel close to her, but also to settle into their new surroundings. As soon as an animal is brought in, she walks over, takes a sniff or two, and then licks and cuddles them. It is quite amazing."

You can read the whole story here. And thanks to my big sister for sending it along to me!! :)
