Fred is a pet Labrador at Essex’s Mountfitchet Castle in the U.K. He is the proud parent dog to takes care of nine orphan ducklings that do not have a mother. Fred, therefore, has taken upon the role of dad and protects and guides the ducklings.
The ducklings adore their dad and play mischievously with him. They climb on his back and swim in the moat with him. The ducklings are expected to stay with Fred for a few weeks and when they become big enough they’re free to go out of the castle if they wish. That’s a wrap up of a cute little story of how this dog takes care of orphan ducklings.
Mountfitchet Castle is also home to many other rescued animals. It’s an excellent tourist destination for both history and animal lovers.
