Thanks to Reddit user dmonnens, the world gets to see these heartwarming photos of a dog who, according to the thread, adopted a baby chimpanzee after its mother died at a zoo. Since the dog had just given birth, it was able to raise the baby chimp with her litter of puppies.
While very little additional information is available, the photos manage to tell a delightful story all on their own.
