Orphaned monkey approaches little puppy and asks to be friends

March 5th, 2021

The thought of taking a monkey into your home may seem strange to some people. How does one take care of a monkey, anyway? And, can a monkey get along just fine with other animals? Won’t other animals just try to hurt it?

In Cambodia, one man thought it was not such a bad idea to take in a baby monkey. He also didn’t mind keeping the monkey with two puppies in the place where he lived.

The man who took the baby monkey in had good reasons to do so.

The mother of the baby monkey had been captured by hunters, leaving the baby to fend for itself. The helpless baby monkey had to be rescued. The man’s decision to keep the monkey was truly an act of kindness.

The baby monkey is called Min. And, it turns out that the puppies have gotten along with Min just fine. In a YouTube video of Min with the two puppies, the puppies look eager to play with the monkey.

One scene in the video shows Min approaching the puppies after the baby monkey had a snack and a relaxing time on a pile of sack.

Min now wants to play with the puppies.

Min begins to pat the two puppies on their backs and then cup their cheeks.

One of them tries to touch Min but fails in the attempt. Min is just too quick for it.

The play date suddenly becomes a game of tag between the baby monkey and the two puppies. The puppies appear to have decided that they should give Min at least a few boops. The puppy that previously attempted to touch Min tries again.

But, when the puppy is about to touch Min with its paw, Min quickly steps back to miss the boop.

The three adorable animals continue playing in the video. The two puppies seem to be happy having Min around even though Min is not one of them.

It becomes apparent in the video that Min has already become good friends with the two puppies.

Min looks happy in its new home. The baby monkey is lucky to have been rescued.

After Min became separated with his mother, there’s no telling how it would have survived on its own in the wild. Thank goodness there was a man who was kind enough to take Min in.
