    • Anonymous says on  07/28/2014 at 3:53 am

      The deer was obviously raised with the dog since its adopted a lot of dog like behaviors. Unfortunately, as sweet as this looks, the deer can never go back to the wild and wont be able to reproduce unless its introduced to another tame deer. The deer is completely dependent on the humans for survival. I don’t know the circumstances of why the deer ended up there but not so sure they did it a favor by removing it form its natural habitat. If the people don’t decide to keep it they will have to ensure it gets adopted to some kind of animal refuge, that specializes in domesticated wildlife. Its kind of sad if that happens. That’s why sometimes its better to leave the animal where it belongs.

      • Barbara says on  07/28/2014 at 9:39 am

        I agree but what if the animal just showed up and they didn’t take it in but the dog behaved this way that would make it even more special. I agree with you that wild animals should be enjoyed in the wild. I also believe that we need to educate people on this subject.

        Theirs a documentary on net flix called “odd couples”. They did find the fawn but she came and goes as she pleased and still come back to visit the dog but she does live in the wild with other deer and has had twin fawns. The people made it were she had barely any human contact but the dog and her have a close bond and the deer comes to visit the dog but keeps her babies a distaned away. Its a really cool documentary.

      • shelterdude says on  07/28/2014 at 7:23 pm

        Been a shelter volunteer for years, this doesn’t surprise me. I understand the deer needs to live wild so it can sustain. Im glad the homewoners didn’t run off the deer or try to scare it. The relationship between them is great and I hope they have a long life of friendship.

        You might want to watch it again, another deer showed up during the video!

      • You are so wrong. Pip is a mom and grandma now with 8 fawns of her own. She is living in the same place as she was born, which was our farm and is as wild as they come. Being raised by our dog was the best thing for her as she was able to make the transition to being wild very easily. Funny how folks just think they know all about something when they don’t have the foggiest idea. Do some research next time. Thanks.

          its great the dog looked totally happy to spend time with her, and it makes me smile that there are people like you that instead of going out and shooting her let her live and show that they are not just for meat and game.

      • Animal Lover says on  11/03/2014 at 5:16 pm

        Hi – you need to watch the documentary on Netflix or similar, which these two animals are part of. The documentary is called “Animal Odd Couples” and yes, the deer does go on to have babies and brings them to the home for her dog friend to meet. The deer was found abandoned on the property as a baby and they took care of her but allowed her to come and go as she pleased. The documentary is amazing. Animals do have feelings and emotions, many of them similar to humans.

    Great video. I wonder though, now that they have tamed the deer, how do they keep this deer, who has is roaming wild, from being shot by hunters since it has no fear of humans.

        I also have raised a baby deer with my yellow lab. they also would sleep on the same bedding and play in the yard. Unfortunately I could not keep him when he got his first set of antlers. He got to playful. He is now in a 5 acre high fenced area where hunters can not shoot him. He is a axis deer and I am waiting for two does for him so he will be happy. He still gets his favorite treats each day.

  3. Carolyn says on  07/27/2014 at 3:45 pm

    Since we have taken away their food sources, I see no reason why we shouldn’t show
    at least a little kindness and generosity to animals who, knowing we are not their kind, still approach us for help. We owe it to them. Also, a little kindness and help
    never hurt anyone, that I know of – there should be a lot more of it.

      I think it’s wonderful that people can see that animals can be at peace with one another. The Bible says that the wolf will reside for a while with the lion. Isa. 11: 6. this will have a literal fulfillment as well as a figurative one when people with animal like characteristics will get along in peace with others. That is happening now among Jehovahs’s Witnesses.

    Within a year they will end up shooting the poor deer. It’s found a free and easy source of food and won’t go back to the wild now, it will soon grow to be a large nuisance deer. Nothing good comes from man messing around with wild animals that should be left peacefully by themselves in the wild.

    The title is misleading as the deer didn’t just wander into the yard and make friends with the dog. On Animal Planet they included this dog and deer on a documentary. The dog actually befriended a fawn without parents, and when the fawn grew up it stayed close friends with the dog.

    As cute and heartwarming as this video is, People have seem to have forgotten that taming a deer that is meant to be wild by nature, into something that is dependent on human handouts, that you are doing more harm than good. Not to mention that this deer will more than likely be shot by a hunter for being too trusting. In my state you cannot have deer as pets. The only way that you can have deer is to be a licensed wildlife rehabilitation center. Deer also carry Lyme disease, which is also fatal if it is not treated. Just a few reasons not to make deer as pets.

    Problem is the deer is now domesticated, and won’t be able to survive in the wild. So whoever owns the dog and owns the house there has broken the law and condemned the deer to living it’s life as a house pet. Sad really.

      I don’t know where you live, but here in British Columbia the wild deer spend much of their time in our back yards eating the flowers and vegetables and have no fear of humans. How is that any different from this deer’s life?

    • Bill says on  07/28/2014 at 3:44 am

      Not against the law in all states in the US or other countries. Against the law in a nanny state like Calif. Many deer in our rural yards that we don’t harm and they don’t harm us or our pets. We just don’t advertise it to Fish and Game wardens.

    The title is misleading; the deer has been with the family for years and is best pals with the dog. There are other videos of them on youtube.

    I guess what would concern me about this vid is the possibility of deer ticks and Lyme disease for all concerned, the dog, the cat and most of all the humans? It seems to that the deer was brought up with the animals from a fawn as it had a collar at one point. Maybe that wasn’t the best idea for the people involved but the vid has some heart warming moments but what does this deer do now that is grown and depends on these human nuances for it’s life.

    Eventually nature is going to call and things are going to change at some point, frankly I don’t think enough of that was considered before interfering with nature. This deer is now probably condemned to an early death unfortunately, if not by trusting the wrong hunter then by not being able to cope in the wild.

  35. Anonymous says on  07/28/2014 at 3:42 am

    I have seen this before. It ususally happens when a deer has been raised by people. Where I live it is common for doe to get hit by cars leaving the fawn to wander around, people pick them uop and raise them. A couple down the road from me raised one from a fawn and it roamed everywhere with their dog.

  36. Oh good grief… in the “natural order” that dog would hunt down that deer like a steak at a fourth of July picnic! What is it with worshipping nature these days? True, nature yields a lot of wonders, but in “true” natural order, that deer-dog relationship would be hunter – target… it’s cutsie, but not accurate…

    People are mistaken in their preconceived ideas and beliefs about animals. Most dogs would show some type of aggression towards the deep..prhpas, but it is not a hard a d fast rule. I have a 105 lb “big” lab…who has 4 cats a house mates and a 12 lb poodle! Not once did he ever show aggression towards any of them! He is very different form many other dogs/ Labs. If yur dog grows up and is surrounded with love and affection, and you show it for other things too…they catch on. Since my dogs are not “hungry” they do not hunt or chase to survive..but they love to “play” at it. The poodle chases the cats but always stops short of grabbing them(he is very fast) and 15 min later they are all laying around in the same room wit no problems at all, because it is allpart of the game…they have no need to hurt or defend…and they know it. Like people, many animals do not fit the stereotype…

  66. Years ago when I was living on the farm as a kid there were two small Blacktail Bucks grazing down in the lower field. As they grazed and we watched them, I noticed one of them had three legs. They both seemed to have the same antler and body size so I suspected twin bucks. The interesting thing here is that they could both handle grazing and standing alone, but when they wanted to move further, the four legged buck would go and let the three legged buck lean on him a bit to keep his balance. When they left the field they had to jump a fence, so the one leaned on the other until the last minute when they had enough speed up and then they were both able to jump the fence.

  67. I eat meat, I hunt animals but through all of this I have a deep seated respect for the lives taken to feed myself and my family, be they cows, sheep or wild game. Animals are capable of much more than any of us give them credit for.

    It’s not at all obvious that the deer was raised by humans. A friend in North Dakota had neighbors who had two dogs with a large outdoor doghouse. In the fall, a deer would show up and sleep in the doghouse with the dogs, all cuddled up. It happened for at least two years in a row.

  86. Seen this before, actually. It’s just a matter of exposure and adjustment. Dogs will warm up to anything if they’re used to it. Deer can get used to dogs, too. :)
