VIDEO: Yellow Lab adopts nine ducklings


STANSTED, United Kingdom (KXAN) — It’s possible to teach an old dog new tricks, like becoming a proud parent to a batch of ducklings.

The nine young ducks were found wandering around Mountfitchet Castle in the U.K. Workers there couldn’t find their mother, but then Fred the yellow Labrador stepped up as a surrogate parent. The 10-year-old dog cuddles with them and even lets them ride on his back.

In the past, Fred also helped look after an injured squirrel.
