A white baby lion cub named Jojo was taken away from her mother shortly after she was born in July to have a naval infection treated. When her caretakers at a German zoo tried to reunite baby Jojo with her mother, Nala, she rejected her daughter.

So German zookeeper Jeanette Wurms took Jojo home with her. And to the surprise of Wurms, her male pit bull mix has become a father to the highly endangered white lion cub.



�Lejon looked after her with me from the first day,� Wurms, a lion keeper at the Stukenbrock safari park, told The Local.de. �Licking her clean, and lying next to her when I was giving Jojo her bottle. Since then we have become a very special family.�

Lejon, whose name means lion in Swedish, spends much of each day playing in the garden with Jojo. �I had to take the decision to hand raise the tiny cub, to give it a chance at life,� said Wurms.

And what a life Jojo is enjoying with her new family.

�Lejon is so patient,� said Wurms. �Jojo scrambles all over him, jumps on his head, bites his fur. But he doesn�t mind � he�s a very patient surrogate.�
