When children grow up with animals, they often grow up to be adults that love animals.
We’ve seen this many times in our lives, but there are also times when children go beyond simply loving animals and they have something special.
It seems as if that is the case with a little girl named Phoenix. According to The Dodo, ever since Phoenix was a baby, she had the ability to bond with animals and they absolutely loved her.
You can see it for yourself on the family’s sanctuary Instagram, as Phoenix is playing with all types of animals, from little pigs to chickens.
Regardless of which animals she happens to be around, there is always something special that seems to be between them.
That was seen in an even greater way when a tiny fox found its way into her home. She stays with her mom at the Greener Pasture Sanctuary in Perth, Australia. The sanctuary took in a fox pup in 2015.
Foxes are considered to be vermin in Australia, and they didn’t want this little one to die. They brought him in to take care of him but nobody was expecting Phoenix to have such a special bond with that fox, named Fergie.
As you watch the video below, you can’t help but notice just how much love is between these two. Phoenix and Fergie spend their days together, and it seems as if that is exactly what they should be doing.
