      like these photographs are interesting, but then mid-2020’s internet venacular seeminly requires “so I was having a bad day then I saw this on my way to work”

      Yeah OP just grabbed a passing baby deer and set it on the dog. Definitely a more believable story.

        Deer farms are a thing, that’s likely exactly what happened. Unless you think a baby deer wandered onto this dogs legs, it was placed there.

    If you had a Great Pyrenees (Dog pictured) - you absolutely would not be wondering. They are livestock guardian dogs and some of the most stubborn dogs you will even interact with.

      I had a Border Collie/Corgi mix who lived up to the shepherd skills of both breeds. He once found a baby rabbit about a week old in our yard and brought it in to my wife carrying it without hurting it. She took it out to where she thought it came from and put it back. A few hours later, he brought it back in. So we set up an old guinea pig habitat for it. A little while later, he brought in another. We ended up taking care of them until they were old enough to release. But he would check on them multiple times a day. I’m pretty sure the only way he would ever intentionally hurt something is if it was threatening my wife or daughter.

        We had a mongrel from a shelter who clearly had some border collie in him. He showed it in his behaviour too, he’d try and herd me and my brother if we went too far away on walks. If we wandered off while he was on a lead, he’d get really agitated because he couldn’t herd us. It was annoying and cute in equal measure.

          I saw a video once of what was supposed to be a race between about 8 corgis. Instead of running toward the finish line, they all just started trying to herd each other.

    Yeah it’s getting pretty uncivil in these comments. Sorry, op, comments are getting locked.

    Cute photo though, it’s an old school meme.
