A pregnant Australian Shepherd was found living at a gas station near the Mexican border, so Arizona based Sunshine Dog Rescue took in the soon-to-be mother. Unfortunately, the litter was born premature and none of her puppies survived.
Mama was devastated.
“I’ve never had a mom dog lose a whole litter before. The best way I could describe it was she was frantic. It was so sad, she was looking for those babies. She tore up the toddler mattress we had her on, trying to find her babies,” Anita Osa, founder of Sunshine Dog Rescue, told CNN.
Anita started immediately looking around for any puppies that Georgia could take care of. But what she found were three kittens instead! She decided to introduce them slowly…
Georgia accepted them as her own right away, and the kittens didn’t seem to notice she was a dog. The dog allowed them to nurse and cleaned them like a good mama! 🙂

Georgia decided on the names for her babies….dark grey baby is Graffiti, tan baby is Gumball and the newest family member, orange baby, is Goober. They have all opened their eyes, are gaining weight (now weigh 7-8 ounces each), and seem very content with mama. ❤️ #dogsandcats #sunshinedogrescue #rescue
Sadly, one kitten ended up passing away. But Georgia has two babies with whom she’s created an unlikely yet adorable bond. Amazing!
