ATLANTA (NBC) -- A "meow" outside the door of an Atlanta home has turned into a labor of love for a dog.
Camille and Mari Ryan Heschmeyer say their dog, Ellie, has taken "ownership" of a little kitten they found abandoned outside their home last week.
Although she has never had puppies, Ellie has become very much a mother to this baby feline.
"It's been a very interesting situation." says Mari Ryan Heschmeyer, one of Ellie's owners. "We didn't expect more than a little curiosity and scooping up. [She said] thank you very much, it's mine now."
