Rodents can be cute, you guys. Even giant rodents. And they're like, really good moms.

The resident capybara at Rocky Ridge Refuge in Arkansas, who is named Cheesecake, recently "adopted" a litter of dachshund puppies. What is a capybara? Basically a very large guinea pig.

According to Dogster, the puppies were abandoned. Someone stuffed them in a plastic bin, closed the lid and dumped it behind a church.

Luckily, a person at the facility turned them over to Rocky Ridge, where they frolic with Cheesecake on the reg.
