Tigers and a Dog – level 3
A dog in Germany is helping to raise tiger cub twins. Their mother abandoned them soon after birth in a safari park in northern Germany. Their names are Peach and Pearl.
A zookeeper named Jeanette took the abandoned cubs into her home and fed them some milk. Since then, the cubs have lived in her living room.
Her dog Leon quickly adopted the role of a mother. He is acting as an educator and an entertainer. The cubs want to be near him all of the time. He is responsible and tries to educate them. They will spend a little more time together and he will show them how far they can go when they play.
Jeanette and her dog Leon have raised tiger and lion cubs before. She warns that they are not suitable pets. When they grow up, they can be dangerous. Soon, the cubs will go back into a suitable place, but for now, they are still like puppies for their dog friend.
Difficult words: raise (bring up) abandon (when someone leaves something), cubs (baby animals such as tigers, lions and bears), entertainer (someone funny), suitable (appropriate for something).
