This Dog Has Adopted 9 Orphan Ducklings And TBH It’s Just Too Cute

Meet Fred, the resident 10-year-old Labrador at Mountfitchet Castle in Essex and his nine babies…who just happen to be ducklings!

Staff at the castle aren’t sure where these little ducklings came from and their mom was no where to be found but Fred stepped in became their surrogate dad!

In a statement, the castle staff said: “The ducklings absolutely adore him and he has now resigned himself to being a stay-at-home dad looking after the nine baby ducklings. They are getting very mischievous, even hitching a ride on his back and following him into the water for a swim in the castle moat.”

Can you heart even handle this cuteness???
