The heartwarming story of Marley the rescued fox and Ernie the bulldog is like a real-life Disney movie. When Pauline Ashanolla found the abandoned and frightened two-week-old fox cub, she couldn’t find a rescue center to take her in. So, Pauline decided to care for Marley herself and nurse her back to health.
At first, Pauline was unsure how her bulldog, Ernie, would react to the new addition to their family. Ernie was initially scared of Marley and didn’t like her presence. However, as time passed, they started to form a strong bond. After about three weeks, they began playing together, and since then, they have become inseparable.
Marley and Ernie do everything together, from playing all day to sleeping together at night and going on walks side by side. Despite the usual notion that dogs and foxes are enemies, Ernie and Marley proved that friendship knows no bounds. It’s like a real-life version of “The Fox and the Hound,” with Ernie being gentle and sweet with his foxy friend.
Pauline’s dedication to helping Marley was so profound that she gave up her dream job as a dog groomer to spend more time with the rescued fox. Thanks to her care and love, Marley thrived and transformed into a beautiful and healthy little fox.
The story of Marley and Ernie is a heartwarming example of how love and compassion can bridge the gaps between different species and create lasting friendships. It’s a reminder that animals are capable of forming deep connections with one another, breaking stereotypes and inspiring kindness in all of us.
