Gentle Giant Adopts Tiny Rescue Owl, His Protective Love Will Make Your Day.

belgian shepherd cuddles with tiny owl

Tanja Brandt is a German photographer who has dedicated her career to photographing animals and wildlife. In one of her most recent projects, Brandt shot photographs of a highly, unlikely pair of friends. Ingo, the Belgian shepherd; and Poldi -short for Napoleon- the one-year-old owlet who have formed the most incredible bond.

Brandt describes the relationship between Ingo and Poldi as somewhat of a ‘protector-protected’ relationship. Ingo is a guardian for Poldi, whom Brandt says “doesn’t know how to live free.”

1. Poldi didn’t hatch until two days after his six brothers and sisters.
