Lisha is perhaps the biggest hearted dog in the world
A title that is difficult to achieve with so many loving canines
But this dear has earned the name of mother to many
Babes in need? She has never turned away any.
It may come as no surprise that she is a lab
Golden color and white in the face,
She still takes on babes who have no other parent,
Getting close to them all, never staying distant.
She lives at the Oudtshoorn’s Cango Wildlife Ranch
And she is not part of so many a family branch.
This dog does not care what species a babe is
Any babe that comes here can claim her as his.
So far she has adopted a cheetah and tiger cubs, wild felines
Potbellied pigs and a cute little porcupine.
Add to that list a pygmy hippo and a slinky baby weasel
Even an orphaned barn owl has been on her parental easel.
Perhaps the best thing that this loving dog gives
Not only the chance for each animal their own life to live,
But trust in the people who are to help them recover
To one day return to their home under the wild sun’s cover.
