When a Pygmy goat was born, everyone likely thought it would take to its mother. Instead, it found a surrogate in Shadow, a white German Shepherd. While it’s unclear why the goat was drawn to the dog, what is clear is the bond they share. The miniature goat likes to cuddle up to Shadow, while the dog responds with sweet, motherly kisses (in other words, a lot of licking).
