Owner Catches Adorable Footage Of Labrador Playing Chase With Deer Friend

A dog in the distance runs alongside a fence in a backyard. On the other side of the fence is a deer who is running just a pace or so behind the dog.

Some of the best friendships are the ones that you least expect. This applies to humans, of course, but it can also apply to our animal friends. On social media, there’s no shortage of adorable videos that showcase some of the most unexpected friendships between two different kinds of animals. One social media user recently experienced this kind of friendship first-hand between her sweet dog and a lone deer — best of all, they caught the adorable moment on camera for us to enjoy, too!

In the video, we see this person’s Labrador, who is perfectly named Bear. He’s having fun while running around his fenced-in backyard, but he’s not alone. Just on the other side of the fence is a curious deer. The two of them playfully run back and forth, perfectly keeping pace with each other. It’s like a cute game of chase! See for yourself in the viral video below.

How precious are these two besties? If you’re thinking that it’d be unlikely for a deer and a dog to get along, I have great news: This isn’t the first time a friendship like this has occurred! Not long ago, a deer named Buttons and a her dog best friend, G-bro, went viral for their years-long friendship.

Adorable Dog and Curious Deer Form an Unexpectedly Precious Friendship

Needless to say, people from all over can’t stop gushing over how cute these two are together! Because, seriously, what’s better than two adorable animals playing together!?

“Goldens and labradors making friends with every creature they find,” one person writes in the comments.

“What in the Disney movie is happening,” someone else says, with another person adding, “Dogs are just pure joy aren’t they?”
