U.K. Labrador Retriever Named Fred Adopts His Third Group of Orphaned Ducklings: 'Well Done'
·2 min read
Fifteen orphaned ducklings have found an unlikely but experienced foster dad: a 15-year-old Labrador retriever called Fred.
Fred may not look the part, but he is a practiced duck parent. Several times, the dog has taken an orphaned group of ducklings under his furry wing. According to SWNS, in 2018, Fred, then 10, acted as a surrogate parent to nine orphaned ducklings. A year later, Mountfitchet Castle in Essex, England — where Fred is the resident dog — posted on Facebook that Fred looked after another group of ducklings left without parents.
Now, in 2022, the senior dog has become the proud father of a new feathered brood.
These ducklings were left orphaned after their mother mysteriously disappeared from the castle's grounds overnight. After the mother duck didn't return, Fred decided to take over the role of parent by keeping an eye on the baby birds, taking the ducklings for rides on his back, and cuddling with the little animals.
