Adorable dog takes care of an orphaned foal

Despite being orphaned at just nine days old, this adorable foal has been supported and kept company by this sweet pup.

The farm owner didn’t think Tye would make it but he did. Zip, the farm’s Australian cattle dog, has been keeping Tye company since the death of its mother.

The adorable pup has become more of an adoptive father to the orphaned foal since the two are always together. If they’re not playing, you’ll find the dog laying his head on the baby horse.

Zip, a five-year-old rescue dog, previously only peeked through the door at the horses. All that changed when Tye was orphaned at nine days. Zip seemed to understand Tye’s loneliness.

Whenever Tye isn’t spending time with Zip, you’ll find him hanging out with his elder sister learning the ways of the horses. Dogs are loyal friends to humans but the bond between Zip and Tye shows that they can be good to their fellow animals.

Even though Tye is now an independent horse, he still has a special bond with Zip. This video has been viewed over fifty thousand times, which tells us that many people enjoyed it.
