Spanish piglet suckled by her canine carer

A Spanish piglet has been spared the butcher after it was adopted by a dog.

The Iberic piglet was due to be sold for Christmas dinner but was turned down by the butcher in Caceres, in Spain's Extramadura region, for being too small.

Now the piglet is being looked after by the family Dog, Diana, who has welcomed it as part of her litter.
