Murkin the dog, perhaps the most patient canine caught on video, loves his foster kittens.

These adorable kittens are mothered by Murkin the dog (who is a male) while they get healthy and get ready for adoption.

You might want to take out an onion and put it nearby, just in case anyone sees you watching these and asks about all the tissues.

What's Up with this Dog?

According to his human, dcjanelle, Murkin is a shelter dog adopted at about 6 months. Born in 2003, he's thought to be a great pyrenees/lab/golden retriever/australian shepherd mix.

Murkin's human fosters kittens for a local animal shelter, helps them recover from a previously rough life, and finds them homes. This has given Murkin the chance to meet many kitties and there's plenty of video footage to prove it.

Clearly, this is one kitty loving dog! Both Murkin and his human are heroes, and we owe them a big thank you for caring for all of these kitties.
