Dogs are caring and loving creatures. They look after not just their owners and other canines, but also other animal creatures, particularly those who are in need. Harley, a Goldendoodle, proved this one day while down by the lake when she did something unusual.
Ralph Dorn, Harley’s owner, planned to take his pet down to the shore for some fun. Dorn let Harley play as much as he wished while he was there. That was until Harley vanished out of nowhere.
Dorn launched a desperate search for his missing family pet. He saw him out in the ocean at that point. Harley was also accompanied by another creature, its little head bobbing barely above the waterline. Dorn noticed it was a newborn deer as the two moved closer.
As Harley brought the little animal safely to shore, the deer seemed to be just a few days old. As the fawn approached the beach, it appeared that he would have difficulty getting out of the water since the bank was too high for his little body. Harley did something great at that point.
By pulling the newborn deer up the bank, Harley really assisted him in getting out of the water. To top it off, Harley began cleaning the deer as soon as he was securely on shore. According to Dorn, the affection he showed the tiny animal was incredible.
“Harley was determined not to leave the fawn. Dorn told People, “He simply continued connecting with it, kissing it, caring for it.”
Harley’s story of kindness has gone viral.
Dorn wrote on his Facebook account about Harley’s generosity. He went into further detail about his adoring pet’s lovely behaviors in the article. The post has 117,000 likes and has been shared over 261,000 times.
The fawn was reunited with his mom and resumed his normal routine. The fawn reappeared the next day, which was a pleasant surprise.
Harley and the deer are now best buds. Dorn isn’t surprised by his dog’s behavior. Harley has previously worked as a therapy dog and has always shown love and kindness to the children and animals he encounters.
Harley was merely doing what came naturally to him, since therapy dogs are chosen for their generosity. He must be a wonderful and compassionate dog because he opted to aid the fawn without being asked by his owner.
