Summary: Three orphaned tiger cubs have found an unusual mother figure - a white Swiss Shepherd dog, called Tallim.

Three orphaned tiger cubs have found an unusual mother figure - a white Swiss Shepherd dog called Tallim.

The cubs were born in the Oktyabrsky zoo in the Black Sea resort of Sochi in Russia on 14th of November.

Two male cubs, named Olymp and Dar and one female cub Talli, named after her adoptive mother, were abandoned by their birth mother, tigress Bagira.

This is not the first time that Bagira has refused to feed her newborns. Five months ago a similar situation arose when she gave birth to two cubs.

So, the Oktyabrsky zoo staff were prepared. When the tigress abandoned her newborns again, they quickly advertised on the Internet a vacant position of a tiger mother.

The position was filled by the white Swiss Shepherd that was found in Yeysk, in the Krasnodar region.
