The ten-year-old pooch is the resident pet at Mountfitchet Castle near Stansted, Essex, in the UK, where a member of staff found the lost siblings toddling around the battlements. The Staff at the popular tourist attractivenes said they were very worried about the ducklings, but Fred instantly took to them and has been babysitting ever since.
