Heroic Dog Saves Baby Girl From Angry Goat

Growing up with a dog is fun. You get a BFF who loves you no matter what, and you also get a protector who will do anything to keep you from getting hurt.

That is perfectly exemplified in a video that was captured on one family’s security camera and shared with ViralHog.

The video shows a little girl out back in the yard. She’s doing what most kids do while outside, exploring and playing. There is also a goat in the yard.

Now, goats are cute and can be playful when they want to be. But sometimes that playfulness can be a little rough seeing as they will often butt others with their heads. That’s probably fine for other goats or even grown adults, but for a child that is roughly a toddler, that can be a bit too rough.

You can see the little girl gently petting the goat, who seems to be okay at first, but then when she pulls away, the gThe oat starts to head-butt her. He’s clearly not head-butting her as hard as he could, but she’s too young to be steady on her feet with a few light hits. The goat doesn’t seem to want to stop the head butting, so that is when the family dog steps into the rescue.

Out of nowhere on the camera, you see a flash of brown dart across the yard and shoo away the goat. This good boy was going to make sure that the goat leaves the little girl alone. As her parents said to ViralHog, “Our dog saw our baby girl in trouble and acted quickly.”

For those wondering, the parents did note that they were not too far away watching from the porch, so it’s not like they left her alone with the goat unsupervised.
