If you have ever had a German Shepherd in your life, you realize they can be very gentle and kind. The family who had Shadow in their lives knew that she was also wonderfully kind but they had no idea how far her kindness would go. That is, of course, until a newborn pygmy goat came into their lives.
Pygmy goats are a type of miniature domestic goat so they are certain to be adorable. Shadow saw the little goat and it was love at first sight. Her motherly instincts kicked in and she began to protect the goat as if it was one of her own.
The good news is, the baby goat was just as happy to see Shadow. Perhaps it was her white coat that made the little goat think that the dog was her mother. She snuggled in quickly and let shadow lick and kiss her tenderly. Since that first meeting, Shadow is always with her little friend.
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.
