Fred, a 10-year-old Labrador retriever, lives at Mountfitchet Castle in Stansted, United Kingdom.He rose to fame as a loyal and friendly pup after becoming the father of nine orphaned ducklings.
Last week, the duckling’s mother vanished, leaving them alone.Fred took on the responsibility of caring for the ducks.He curled up next to them to keep them warm.These ducklings can feel Fred’s gentle care and comfort, so they accepted their strange-looking new mother and climbed all over him.
They seem right at home on his back.
Then, under Fred’s supervision, they swim in the moat.They also nap on the lawn with Fred whenever they can.The castle staff hopes Fred will be able to provide this level of attention for a few more weeks until they are old enough.The ducks will be self-sufficient and ready to begin a new life on the castle grounds by then.
Labs are just the best ❤️❤️❤️
It’s odd that Fred adopted ducklings but did not become a father to other Labradors.Anyway, he did an excellent job, and he is now content to be a stay-at-home father raising nine newborn ducklings.
What a wonderful dog!
The ducklings follow Fred wherever he goes and stay with him all day.This video has gone viral, and you can feel their fatherly love for them when you watch it.
Absolutely adorable 👍💯❤️
Fred is beautiful and a great foster dad too! ❤️❤️
