Fred, a 10-year old Labrador retriever who lives at Mountfitchet Castle in England. He has grown up surrounded by animals of all shapes and sizes and has become dad to nine orphaned ducklings after their mother vanished.
When the ducklings’ mom disappeared, a member of staff at the castle found them waddling around the castle grounds alone. Staffs said they were very worried about the ducklings but Fred immediately took to them and has been babysitting ever since. The ducklings rely on Fred to keep them safe and warm, and the Labrador has become accustomed to having nine tiny shadows.
Fred will be the ducklings’ “dad” for the next few months until they are able to learn how to fly and become independent and Fred is definitely up to the challenge. Fred may be a bit larger and furrier than the ducklings’ mom, but he has proved to be an ideal foster parent.
