This Lion Has Taken A Special Liking To Abby, The Tiny Dachshund

Bonedigger, a large Barbary lion, has taken a special liking to Abby, the tiny dachshund.

A disabled lion who was reared by a double amputee zookeeper has formed an unlikely bond with a miniature sausage dog with the pair inseparable ever since the cat was a cub.

Bonedigger, a 500lb male lion might dwarf Milo, an eight-year-old Dachshund but he rarely leaves his side.

The two have been inseparable over the past five years at G.W. Exotic Animal Park in Wynnewood, Oklahoma.

  • Bonedigger the lion, never leaves the side of Dachshund dog Milo
  • The pair have been inseparable since Bonedigger was just a cub
  • They cuddle, eat raw meat and even play together at an animal park
  • The lion was hand-reared by double amputee zookeeper John Reike
  • Found he had a skill for rearing animals after losing his legs after an accident
  • Struck up a bond with big cats after looking after seven foot lion Bonedigger
  • His wife Kirsti and his two sons also help to look after the animals
