In Rode, India, locals were touched by the compassion of a Rhesus macaque monkey who had adopted a homeless puppy. Town locals thought it was bizarre at first, but the apparent love between the two animals was too much to deny. This just goes to show you that love knows no species.

The monkey cares for the little puppy and keeps the little one close as if he were caring for his own baby.

It’s remarkable that a difference in species didn’t keep this monkey from becoming a responsible parent to a puppy who otherwise would not have had anyone to care for him. That just goes to show you that compassion has no limit!

Great and touching, we human beings needs to learn a lot from that great fellow. He / She is a Divine incarnation. I pray Almighty Allah to bless and take care of them. I also Pray Allah to keep the Human monsters away from them to prevent any harm to them.

I am glad people are leaving food out for the puppy- like Bri says, sometimes the poor babies die of starvation- it\'s not the poor monkeys\' fault that they don\'t know how to feed the babies- but a little supplemental food is a kindness, so the bond doesn\'t need to be broken!

It is actually not as \'cute\' as it appears. This happens more frequently than this isolated case with female monkeys. Usually when they can not have their own babies they adopt kittens and puppies as surrogates. In many cases they die due to starvation.
This puppy seems OK. But, there is a video online of a Taiwanese professor (I think) in Taiwan rescuing kittens from monkeys in similar scenarios like this. In it he explains the kittens will probably die otherwise.
