English Bull Terrier Befriends Fawn She Finds In Backyard

Apollo Frankie from Acworth, Georgia shared this adorable video of her English Bull terrier, Frankie, sweetly befriending a newborn fawn in her backyard.

She writes:

“Last night Frankie found a newborn fawn in our yard. We think it was probably born in the backyard. It is apparently very common for mother deer to leave their babies in a safe location after they are born. The babies wait for the mother to come back for feedings.”

“Frankie found her out back and babysat her for a few hours until mom was ready to return. We left our back gate open overnight and saw the mom come back a few times to check on her baby after we took Frankie inside.”

“Frankie cried all night for the little one. We think some of her motherly instincts kicked in. She wanted to go outside and check on her so badly! Both mom and baby were gone in the morning, probably moved to a safer location.”
