This Dog Works At A Zoo. Its Job Will Warm Your Heart
Most zoos rely on a staff of humans to take care of their animals. The Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens, however, have employed a dog to work in their nursery. Blakely helps take care of animals in the nursery who have been abandoned by their mothers and are in need of companionship and affection.
Blakely has helped a wide variety of animals recover in the nursery. For example, Dale, who is a "takin," a goat-antelope animal (not the popular Liam Neeson action film). Dogs and takins are very different animals, but, as the video shows, Blakely knows how to care for the needs of each animal he encounters. Blakely can teach us all a lesson about the importance of caring for everyone around us.
