This little foal sadly lost his mom days after birth. The helpless foal finds all the comfort he needed in a friendly and caring dog. Everyone at the farm got surprised since this affectionate dog had never acted like that. It is incredible how animals have this sense of caring and protection for those in need.
Zip was rescued as a puppy and is now 5 years old. He is an Australian cattle dog and always lived at his parents’ house farm. Zip had never been the friendliest dog, even for the rogue foals. But surprisingly a few months ago, everything changed and Zip proved that he is an actual kind-hearted soul.
After Tye, the foal born, everything was normal for both him and his mother but unfortunately, everything changed into the worst and the little one’s mom died just after nine days of his birth. That incident put Tye in some real danger as life is nearly impossible for an orphan newborn calf. But fortunately, Zip was there for him.
Karla Swindle, the owner says that they raise foals every year, and Zip would kind of look in the door and just look at them. But that night, he has stayed with her in the alley of the barn all night. The foal has laying in the alley and he just lay there beside the foal. It has seemed that Zip knew something was wrong that night.
And then Karla and her family have seen that Zip is spending every night since then alongside his helpless new friend. Surprisingly Tye was so relaxed and comfortable with the caring dog. Zip kept staying beside Tye for several weeks until he is ready to deal with it all by himself.
Every time Karla take off to the barn, Zip would run to the stall. Then he stands in front of the stall and waits until Karla gets there.
It seemed to her that the foal knew that the dog was trying to help him. If Tye was laying down, Zip would go over there and lay his head on him.
Now Tye looks stronger, and he is almost a grown-up horse. He would never make it if it wasn’t there for this kind-hearted friendly dog. Though he grew up and runs a lot through his barn, Zip still keeps an eye on him.
The foal seems a little rough now. So Zip stays away from him now. Whenever the foal needed Zip, Zip was there for him. and now he also knows that Tye has grown up and okay to be live alone. So they can go their separate ways.
