A dog named Zoey surprised everyone when she decided to take care of a deer that appeared in the garden, because he was very sick.
Nashville city musician Pat Pollifrone decided to share a post on his social media where he shows his dog hugging a sick baby deer they found in his backyard.
The dog named Zoey, not only petted the little deer, but decided to take care of him and become his best friend. The incredible experience began on June 24, when the musician found the little fawn lying in the garden of his house.
At that time, the only thing Pat had in mind was to take him to the forest to return home, but the next day he had a surprise.
Dog cuddles rescued deer
Pat wrote on Instagram:
“I found this little animal yesterday in the garden, so we took it into the forest. I went out this morning and it was hanging out in the driveway. So, I guess now we have a deer.”
After noticing he had various health issues, the man decided to help the fawn he named Bambi and shared a video on Instagram. In the description, Pat clarified that the deer was free to return to the wild, but in the meantime, she was going to help him solve his problems.
“He drank goat’s milk and walked around the garden, the infection in his eye looks much better after removing the ticks and applying medicine.”
The charity work wouldn’t just be on Pat’s part, as Zoey decided to help her dad by taking care of the little deer.
The musician shared another post where Zoey can be seen cuddled next to the deer, ready to become his temporary adoptive mother.
“Words cannot describe such tenderness.”
According to Pat, she contacted several animal rescue centers in the city to find help, but none offered her an alternative. Apparently, they didn’t accept deer, nor could they offer her a long-term home, so she didn’t have much choice for Bambi.
Also, he tried to contact the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, but it’s nearly impossible to contact them, so he was unsuccessful.
“So, we will continue to look after the baby until mum comes back. She is doing MUCH BETTER! He is pooping, drinking goat’s milk…the eye infection is going away and the ticks have left him alone.”
In his quest to find a suitable place for Bambi, Pat discovered a goat farm called Gibson Hollow Goat Ranch. The man decided to visit the farm and saw for himself that it was the right home for Bambi, so he will be there soon.
The news of Bambi’s new house could not go unnoticed, so he decided to share it on his social networks to inform all his followers.
“I think we’ve found a place for Bambi to live!”
Thanks to this man and his dog Zoey, the little deer will have a second chance in life, and he will surely always be grateful to them.
