Fear isn’t an emotion only reserved for humans. It can come in all shapes and sizes and affect even the bravest of people…or dogs.
There’s a reason dogs are known as a man’s best friend. Usually, it’s our pets who are there to make us feel better when we’re scared, to serve as our cuddle buddy when we’re lonely, to be our jogging companion when we need that extra motivation to exercise or just be the friend we can always rely on. In other words, dogs are always there when we need them. I mean, everyone’s watched Lassie, right?
German Shepherds, one of the top registered dogs in the United States, not only serve as family pets but are often put to use as police, guard, military, show and performance dogs. Known for their intelligence, courage, and devotion, there isn’t much these four-legged friends can’t do.
But for one German shepherd, their weakness came in the form of a common household device: a sprinkler. Sensing their pet’s hesitation, one brave toddler took it upon themselves to show their fuzzy friend he had nothing to fear and the adorable moment was caught on camera.
In the video, the toddler is seen going towards the sprinkler while looking towards their furry friend. The toddler then touches the jet of water to show the canine they have nothing to fear.
The German shepherd gives the toddler an approving lick, while somehow managing not to bowl over the infant, before heading towards the water sprinkler himself and attempting to take a bite out of it.
After realizing it’s safe, the dog takes a couple more goes at it before backing away. Is there anything cuter than the bond between a child and their pet?
