The Maltese dog in this video is helping to care for the puppies of his Boxer’s friend. His name is William. And he is a very good friend of Boxer Mom. He HAS to be a good friend for Mom to let him care for her newborn babies like this.
William is very nurturing. He licks the puppies like a mom would. Isn’t it nice to have help when you’ve just given birth a few days ago?
One of the puppies bumps his head on the edge of the whelping box, and William licks the puppy’s head to comfort him. I notice that William is very respectful of Mom’s space. He stands outside the whelping box while he licks the babies and helps Mom out when she takes a nap.
I appreciate William. What a nice friend to have. Enjoy this warm video.
