Meet Goliath, the adorable baby cow raised with three dogs who believes he is a dog as well

Goliath and his three brothers are very similar in many ways. 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 when Shaylee Hubbs and her family intervened and rescued 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 brothers that he began to believe he, too, was just a big puppy.

Shaylee told ABC News that she believes Goliath thinks he’s a dog:

“He was raised with our three dogs, and he’s around them every day. They chase and play together, he watches how they eat their dog food and drink water from their bowls and copies them and he even lays in their dog beds. He even loves scratches on his neck around his ear.”

And Goliath has learned a few tricks from his canine brothers.

Though Goliath is supposed to stay outside, the family returned home one day to find Goliath happily hanging out inside.

Shaylee shared 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 met with humor and compassion: “If he comes inside we let him chill for a couple of minutes lmfao” Shaylee said in response to a comment on her post.

Goliath is living the good 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.
