When A Man Loses His Dog, He Discovers Him Rescuing A Newborn Deer

After a Goldendoodle named Harley saved the life of a newborn deer about to drown in the deep waters of Lake la town, residents of Culpeper, Virginia, in the United States, can attest that heroes appear in many forms.

The 62-year-old, who is originally from Virginia, wrote about the event on his Facebook page, saying:

“I’m not sure how the fawn turned out, but Harley didn’t seem to care; he simply did it.”

Ralph stated:

Harley was adamant about not abandoning the fawn. She simply continued to connect with him, licking and caring for him.

After a little while, the boy’s mother came on the lawn, keeping an eye on what was going on with her baby, and Ralph took Harley home when he spotted her. The doe waited for them to go before leaving with her baby.

Ralph expressed himself as follows:

“Harley became agitated as he ran from window to window. We could hear the fawn bleating as I opened the front door. Harley dashed towards the tree line, where he discovered the fawn. Harley quietly returned to the home with me once the young kid stopped bleating and wagging his tail. They touched noses and smelt each other.

The deer went away after that brief reunion, and the baby and his mother were no longer visible at the end of the day. Ralph believes the baby was just a few days old at the time of the event, and he has not seen the mother or her calf since. Harley’s reaction, on the other hand, is not surprising to the retired Marine Corps pilot.

Ralph explains:

“Even when he was a puppy, we could tell he had such a nice heart,” says the owner. That’s how it’s always been with kids and animals. He adores all of them.

Harley is a sweetheart who has worked as a trained therapy dog with the elderly in nursing homes and patiently sat with the children during story time at the local library. He also enjoys spending time with Ralph’s four grandchildren.
