15-month old bloodhound Dixie not only didn't eat the baby chicks..she adopted them as her own!

Kate Foster was super worried that Dixie would eat the two-week-old chicks when she brought them home last weekend.

She not only DIDN'T eat them, she slept with them, nestled them and was super careful how she pawed them.

According to WCSH6 Kate says,

I have heard about dogs adopting other animals as their own but never seen it happen and I can definitely say that she has adopted these chicks as her pups.


Katie also says that she is watched like a hawk by Dixie when she handles the chicks...she's very maternal. And yes, the Dixie Chicks reference isn't lost on us either. Look at this sweet dog and her baby chicks.
