They say a picture is worth a thousand words!  Good thing, because we don't know much about this story.

Thanks to Reddit user dmonnens  we do know the dog adopted a baby chimpanzee after its mother died at a zoo. Since the dog had just given birth, it was able to raise the baby chimp with her litter of puppies.

The photos really don't need any description. They pretty much tell the story.  It's cute. It's heartwarming.  It makes you say, "Awwwwwww". I makes you want to own a baby chimp.

Just a word of warning: Baby chimps grow into adult chimps.
