“I think it would have been okay for the dog to walk down the hill,” Smith told Fox Carolina. “But it just didn’t want to leave the kitten”

The dog and kitten were taken to the Anderson County P.A.W.S. shelter, where they remained inseparable and the dog continued to care for the kitten as one of her own. Eventually, the pair were taken to a foster home – together, of course.
