Interspecies friendships are probably one of the most adorable things on the planet. When an animal of one species steps up to adopt a baby animal of another, our hearts melt. Make one of those animals a baby pygmy goat, and we are a puddle of emotion!

When this family brought home a baby pygmy goat, their beautiful, white German shepherd, Shadow, stepped right up into the role of “mommy.” According to her family, Shadow treated the baby goat like it was one of her puppies. This baby goat doesn’t know any better. After all, they are both fuzzy, so why wouldn’t Shadow be her mommy?

These two spend their days cuddling, and Shadow is a fan of giving her adorable goat-child lots of baths. When the camera comes out, Shadow grins ear to ear, proud of her adorable baby.

Yes, we’ve melted into that aforementioned emotional puddle!
