Being an orphan who is introduced into a new home can be a pretty scary time, you have no idea what it will be like and you are also worried that no one will like you and fear they will ask you to leave.
It's never easy, especially if you are a youngster.
Two rescue dogs with ridiculous names, Pikelet and Patty Cakes, know what it's like to be an orphan. That's why they're happy to welcome a new orphaned pup into their home—and he has an equally ridiculous name.
That name is Potato.
Potato was in a litter of seven 5-week-old puppies that were taken from their mom to be sold at a pet store. They arrived not only weak from dehydration and malnourishment, but also had worms, mange, and fleas.
Fortunately potato was lucky to be adopted after he was rescued by the Wollongong Animal Rescue Network. It meant he found a home with new bros Pikelet and Patty Cakes, two older rescue dogs who previously took an orphaned duckling under their care.
Basically they're the caring type.
Now as you can see from the photos below, they've taken fully welcomed Potato as one of their gang, showering him with love, affection, and no doubt some brotherly advice.
They make for a very cute trio indeed. If you want more cute you can follow their adventures on Instagram.
