Man’s best friend come in different shapes and sizes. They can be small and cuddly or large and fierce. But no matter what their appearance, they are considered as one of the most loyal creatures on earth.
They stick closer than a brother and sometimes risk their lives for their human. We’ve heard a lot of these kinds of stories. And this one is no different. Don’t we just love reading stories like these?
One man tells the story about how his wife’s pit bull never liked him, causing him to be concerned for the moment they brought a new baby home. Would Zack treat the baby as he treated his human’s husband? Even the toughest dogs can surprise you.
10. Zack The Pit bull
Pit bulls are infamous for their aggressive behavior. After all, they were fighting dogs. But despite their reputation, there is also a growing number of pit bull lovers. They say pit bills are one of the sweetest dogs. But this man’s experience was different.
He shared, “My wife and I owned two dogs that we had owned before we met and brought into the marriage. Her dog was a pit bull/labrador cross named Zack, and he hated me.” Now we know why he was worried when they had a baby.
9. Worried Dad
When our daughter was born, I said to the wife,“If he so much as nips at the baby, he’s gone.” It’s only natural for this father to worry because Zack didn’t like him. He was scared that the dog would be aggressive on the baby. But things turned out differently.
8. Love At First Sight
“We brought our daughter home in a car seat, and both dogs sniffed and licked her, tails wagging. I had to pull Zack away from her because he wouldn’t stop licking her,” he shared. Surprisingly, what he feared didn’t happen. Instead, the dogs warmly welcomed the new addition to their family.
7. The Protector
“Zack immediately became my daughter’s protector, and when she was lying on a blanket on the floor, he always had to have one foot on the blanket. Zack loved my daughter immensely, and when she became a little older always walked her to bed, and then slept on the bed with her.”
6. Shadowed Her Everywhere
“He somehow knew whenever it was time to go upstairs, and he would wait at the foot of the stairs for her, and then follow her up to bed. ” The bond they formed was heartwarming and unexpected. But the father was thankful that he didn’t have to get rid of Zack.
Sadly, Zack was poisoned by some dirtbag neighbor kids. And the family had one of the worst days of their lives.
“At 8:00 that night, my daughter walked to the stairs to go to bed. At that moment, all three of us realized what was about to happen.”
4. Sad Moments
“After 5 years, she didn’t have Zack to accompany her upstairs. She looked at her mother and me with a look of horror and panic.” It became a routine for their daughter that Zack’s absence left an empty space. It was truly a sad moment.
3. The New Buddy
“But it was at that moment that my dog, who loved my daughter dearly but was not in Zack’s league, stood up, walked over to her, and nudged her with his head.” The father’ dog came to somehow fill in the loss for their daughter. Although it wasn’t the same as Zack’s, he dog did his best to somehow comfort their daughter.
2. Instant Connection
“He put his foot on the stairs and looked up at her. They walked up to bed, with my daughter holding tightly to his neck.” They both lost a friend and that experience bonded the two immediately. The dog also remembered their routine and tried to fill in for Zack.
1. Until The End
“For the next 6 years, until he died, Sam waited for her by the stairs each night.” Truly, dogs are a man’s best friend. Even a child can instantly bond with a dog. We see how loyal they are until their last breath.
Sometimes, our expectations don’t really happen in reality. Thankfully for this worried father, he didn’t have to get rid of Zack the pit bull. His daughter’s and Zack’s friendship is very touching and heart warming.
