From ANIMAL PEOPLE, May 1993:
When a tiger abandoned her newborn cub recently at
the zoo in Chhat Bir, India, the zookeeper in desperation gave the
cub to his Doberman pinscher to nurse. After 17 days, both dog
and tiger were reportedly doing well.
Orphaned by Hurricane Andrew when his original fam-
ily lost their home and left him at the SPCA in Jefferson Parish,
Louisiana, a Doberman named Max found a new home with Ava
Mareno of New Orleans last October. On March 27, Max saved
her two-year-old daughter Brittany’s life by pulling away another
dog who was mauling her.
