Schoolgirl Peyton Dankworth from Texas has always loved animals, but she unexpectedly became a “mom” to a little donkey named Jack. However, she took the role with all her heart and this recent story has already greatly impacted her life.
Two weeks ago, Peyton, who is in high school in Texas, received a call from her friend who lives on a big ranch. And when Peyton went to visit him, she saw a small and weak donkey on the ranch. For some reason, his mother had abandoned her cub shortly after he was born and he was very weak from hunger, and there was no one there to take care of him.
When Peyton’s friend noticed that the girl was very concerned about the baby, he asked her if she would like to take him in.
“One day a friend of mine was riding horses when he found Jack. His mom wasn’t taking care of him, so he called me and asked if I would like to try to keep him alive. He was skinny and exhausted. I said I would do what I could.” – Peyton said.
The schoolgirl fed him milk, bathed him.. Now he is playful, and lively and loves to have fun with the girl’s dogs. Soon the donkey and the girl formed a close bond, as only a mother can have with her child. Every day Jack grew stronger and gained weight. And the girl’s family accepted him as their new pet.
