When newborn animals are abandoned by their mothers, they have little chance to survive, especially when it comes to herd animals, who have an excessive need for companionship.
Dale, a Takin (a goat-antelope animal) from Cincinnati Zoo, had a misfortune of this happening to him, but at the same time, he was very blessed to have found an incredible friend. Blakely, a gentle and thoughtful dog, took a calf in need under his wing and became his nanny. Dale refuses to go for a walk without his babysitter, so Blakely goes with him, just so that his protege could get an exercise he needs. They even drink from the same bottle! I can’t take this level of cuteness!
