When Officer Michelle Smith from Anderson animal control received a call about a dog barking, it didn’t sound anything out of the ordinary.
But when she arrived at the scene, she was surprised by what she found. She discovered a small dog nursing an abandoned kitten by the side of a creek.
The cuddly pair were at the bottom of an embankment by a deep ravine.
The dog had a collar around its neck but there were no signs of the pair belonging to anyone nearby.
They had obviously both been abandoned and the tiny Shih Tzu had adopted the kitten as her own.
