Cute Baby Goat Thinks German Shepherd Is His Mama, Dog Decides To Go Along With It

Dogs are very protective animals who enjoy looking after not only people but other animals as well. German Shepherds are a breed of dog who are known for being amazing guard dogs. 

This video shows a German Shepherd protecting a newborn pygmy goat. This is the perfect example. Shadow, the German Shepherd, loves this tiny cute goat. She even lets the goat sleep right beside her and cuddle.

The person who videotaped the video describes how it went introducing these animals:

Shadow let her maternal instincts come out with this baby goat. While she has had puppies before, she is currently spayed. Shadow’s owner thinks that maybe she took to the baby goat because she was missing her own puppies and cuddling with them.

It turns out, the feeling was mutual with the goat. The pygmy goat also had a strong connection with Shadow. The goat even thinks that Shadow is his mom and Shadow likes being around the goat.

Shadow will lick the little goat just like many dogs do to their own young puppies. They do this to show their affection. It also helps them learn the smell of their puppies. So when Shadow licks the goat, this shows that she really feels as though the tiny adorable goat is one of her own puppies!
