This Mini Cow Saved From Auction House Now Lives With 12 Dogs, Thinks She Is One Of Them

Meet Moonpie, the miniature rescue cow who lives with 12 dogs and thinks she’s one of them. She was spotted at a livestock auction house by a friend of Janice Wolf, the founder of the Rocky Ridge Refuge Sanctuary. From there, she was taken to a rescue, where, as the weather was really bad and she was too small to be outside with the other cows, Moonpie stayed in Janice’s bedroom and eventually befriended her canine companions.

“She accepts them as her buddies,” Janice told The Dodo. “Babies like that — they don’t know a whole lot about what it’s supposed to be, so they kind of just accept things.”

“[The dogs] are her surrogate moms, Janice said. “They clean her face, the way her mother would have. They love to do that… They were all thrilled to see her.”

Moonpie is particularly fond of the deaf bull terrier named Spackle with whom she’s inseparable. “My dogs have a lot of experience with various critters I rescue or otherwise end up with! A calf is just another friend to love,” Wolf told Bored Panda.

I once had a pet squirrel, and I named her "Puddles" for obvious reasons. I wonder how MoonPie came by her name, hee hee?

Dogs always know when someone is in need, and they look adorable together. But... "miniature cow?" Or is she really a calf?
