Goliath and his three siblings are remarkably similar in many aspects. They’re all cuddly and fluffy, and the rest of their family adores them.
But there is one thing that distinguishes Goliath from his brothers: they are all dogs, while Goliath is a calf!
Goliath was born on a dairy farm and was about to be slaughtered until Shaylee Hubbs and her family intervened and rеscuеd him, bringing him home to their ranch in Danville, California.
Goliath quickly made friends with the family’s three friendly dogs. In fact, he became so close to his new brethren that he began to believe he, too, was just a huge puppy.
Shaylee told ABC News that she believes Goliath thinks he’s a dog:
“He was raised with our three dogs and is constantly surrounded by them.” They chase and play together, he watches and mimics how they eat their dog food and drink water from their bowls, and he even sleeps in their dog beds. He even enjoys having scratches behind his ear on his neck.”
And Goliath has learned a few tricks from his canine brethren.
Though Goliath is supposed to stay outside, the family returned home one day to find Goliath happily hanging around inside.
Shaylee shаrеd a photo on Twitter of Goliath curled up on the family’s couch. Goliath, having observed his big brother and best friend, the Great Dane Leonidas, snoozing on the couch, reasoned that he, too, should be able to do so.
“We left the door open for five minutes,” Shaylee said.
Nobody can resist Goliath’s cute face, and his break-ins are treated with fun and compassion: “If he comes inside we let him chill for a couple of minutes lmfao,” Shaylee said to a comment on her post.
Goliath is having the nice life right now. He was so tiny and weak when he first arrived at the ranch that he couldn’t walk and the family had to lift him, but now he’s thriving and enjoying life on the ranch with not only his three brothers, but also all the other animals on the property, such as horses, alpacas, and goats, and he couldn’t be happier.
