Animals have special instincts when it comes to little ones. Meet Shadow, an incredible white German Shepherd who met a little goat and decided to do something outstanding.
Although Shadow was spayed, she still had motherly instincts since she is a mother herself. The compassionate doggo must have thought that the baby goat needed a mother’s warmth, and so, she decided to adopt him.
The loving mom took him under her wings as if he were her own. She keeps him close, licks his fur every now and then to show some love and keep him clean. They love to cuddle and snuggle with each other.
While the German Shepherd’s owner reckons that Shadow keeps him close to her for she misses her puppies, others believe that she felt like the little goat needed to be taken care of.
The description of the video tells how their first encounter went:
“Introducing two animals of different kingdoms can present itself to be quite the challenge, but if performed properly and carefully, it can be a very rewarding experience. Most of the times, people think of how are they going to introduce their adult cat to a puppy, or vice versa. But this family had a very unique opportunity – they introduced their pet white Shepherd dog to a baby goat! The aftermath is worth the effort!”
The baby goat sees Shadow as his mom. The owner says in the video: “For some reason the goat thinks Shadow is his mommy, and Shadow likes the goat.”
Shadow has a better social life than most of us.
