The poor squirrel is freezing to death so Nick and his wife tried their very best to warm the baby squirrel up. They created a nest in their bathroom sink and even gave the squirrel a heating pad to be warm and keep him that way.

The couple exerted effort to nurse the little squirrel back to its healthy shape again. Nick fed him like a little infant using a medicine dropper filled with medicine.

Nick and his wife's efforts were paid off as the squirrel gradually brought back to its good health. And this kind-hearted couple adopted and treated the rescued squirrel as their own, and he was given the name Apple “Thomas “ Moonbeam.

Radford family is naturally has a heart for animals. Aside from Apple, they too have another two baby doggies named as Maverick and Scout. These two were very eager to meet the new baby in the house. And to Apple's fortune, the two dogs accepted him like their own sibling.

The three get along so well and even played together. The dogs even let the baby squirrel climb on top of of them as they play. Such an adorable act of kindness from the three. And more to it, the two dogs were so protective to the squirrel by being watchful to whatever their baby squirrel do, like an older brother with a watchful and protective trait to his younger kid.

Apple Moonbeam seems to enjoy all the attention given to him from Nick and his wife, as well as from Maverick and Scout.

Nick Radford's happiness couldn't be contained and shared his story and pictures on Imgur. Since then, his story with his rescued squirrel went viral and has gained positive comments from the netizens.

Naturally, squirrels and dogs play together. They tease and chase after each other because it is fun. It depends on the species of dog of course. Some dogs will slow down if they get too close to the squirrel (so the game can continue).
