Orphaned Baby Chimp Adopted by Dog (Photos)

After its mother died, this little chimpanzee was in trouble: it needed lots of extra attention and care if it was going to survive. Luckily, a zoo employee was able to take the chimp home, where he could care for it until it was stronger. To his great surprise, his dog (who had just had a litter of puppies) adopted the orphan chimp and helped care for it as though it was one of her own babies!
