A German shepherd welcomes a newborn pygmy goat and doesn’t let it go out on its side
If you have ever had a German shepherd in your life, you realize that he can be very sweet and kind. The family that had Shadow in her life knew she was also wonderfully kind, but they had no idea how far her kindness would go. This is, of course, until a newborn pygmy goat enters their lives.
Pygmy goats are a kind of miniature domestic goat, so they are certainly adorable. Shadow saw the little goat and it was love at first sight. Her maternal instincts manifested themselves and she began to protect the goat as if it were one of her own.
The good news is that the baby goat was just as happy to see Shadow. Maybe it was her white coat that made the little goat think the dog was her mother. She quickly snuggled up to her and let Shadow lick her and kiss her tenderly. Since that first meeting, Shadow is still with her boyfriend.
The little goat continues to grow larger under the watchful eye of her adopted mother. Shadow helps to protect her and keeps her groomed. The entire family is also in on the act, realizing that Shadow is a compassionate and loving available. They love the fact that their beloved dog is happy to be a mother to an animal of a different species.
