A tiny orphaned kitten was taken into a cat sanctuary for a second chance at life. That's where she met a dog, who was mourning the loss of her puppies.

She walked up to the canine and started to snuggle.

Mohammad Alaa Jaleel who founded Il Gattaro d'Aleppo (The Cat Man of Aleppo), provides a refuge for cats that have been left behind because of war in Syria.

He came across a street dog named Amira, and began to care for her the best he could. When they discovered that she was pregnant, Alaa gave up his room so she could have a comfortable place to rest.

Since they have 80 feline residents, to keep every animal comfortable, Alaa built a little house for the dog next to the sanctuary.

A couple weeks ago, Amira went into labor, but sadly, all three puppies were stillborn. It left her broken hearted. "We were sad and shocked... We gave her a stuffed teddy bear and tried to cuddle with her because she was very sad," Alessandra Abidin, volunteer of the rescue group, told Love Meow.

That's when Junior, a kitten they took in from the streets, noticed the teddy bear, and decided to approach it and the dog.

She slowly walked up to Amira and eventually made her way to her paws. Then she proceeded to rub her face on her. It was then things began to change.

A few days later, Amira was no longer holding her teddy bear.

Instead, she was playing with a tiny kitten on her back and tending to her like a mother would her puppies.

"We found them playing together, and the kitten climbed on her back, and (Amira) was completely fine and even seemed to be smiling," Alessandra told Love Meow.

The bond between the two is beautiful to watch.

They do everything together.

Amira will share her food with her kitten, watching over her every step of the way.

She's a very protective surrogate mom.

"I think Amira needs to stay with Junior because her heart was sad after losing her puppies," Alessandra said.

Now they have each other to cuddle.

The sweet canine needs the kitten just as much as the kitty needs her.

They both had a rough beginning to life, and now they have each other and their hearts are full.
