We see this all the time when a dog will take a kitten as its own offspring, or a cat will take a puppy for feeding and call him her own. This ability to show love regardless of species is one of the things that makes animals so special. But in the video below, we have an even crazier scenario.
Shadow, a white German shepherd, plays the role of the mother of a newborn pygmy goat! The baby approached the dog and Shadow’s maternal instinct kicked in. Its owners say that he cares for the little goat as if he were one of his young. Watch the German Shepherd wag its tail and smile when a kid curls up next to it!
