All the baby animals are super cute, no doubt about that. However, there are times when a character that is too cute to handle shows up and steals the show. This is also the case with this little donkey, which not only thinks it is a puppy, but acts like one. Everyone, meet Walter!
When the adorable donkey was just a few days old, his mother rejected him. The unfortunate young soul, who was alone in this world, was saved in time by a caring couple. Kelly and Brad Blake of Oatman, Arizona, chose to adopt him and make him a part of their family.
“Walter’s mother turned him down because she was too young,” Brad told The Dodo. “They tried for 10 hours to get Walter’s mother to him. Nothing worked, so we were called in and asked if we wanted to adopt him. Of course we said yes! ”
The Blakes, who also have three dogs in their house, exhibited their compassion and love for Walter from the beginning, which greatly aided him. The rescued animal and its adopted family share a particular affinity, but Walter’s interactions with his father are unique. When he saw his father return to his hometown, the infant couldn’t suppress his joy.
Growing up with three dogs left an imprint on Walter’s behavior, so it’s easy to see why he thinks he’s actually a dog. Brad said: “We have three German Shepherds and they all accepted baby Walter from day one. “They helped us raise him and teach him good manners in the house.”
When he gets aroused, the beautiful donkey even wags his tail. That happens every time he discovers his human father. “Walter acts like a dog,” his father observed. “When we returned home, he wagged his tail and was really delighted.” He leaps and touches me in order for me to fall in love with him.”
“We never imagined how much Walter would change our lives for the better,” Brad concluded.
