Heartwarming photos of a young shepherd girl and her dog carrying a baby goat and its mother in their backpacks have gone viral on social media. The photos were reportedly shot in Turkey’s Black Sea province of Rize.
According to the Hurriyet Daily News, the photos were posted on a local animal friendly website and showed the young girl walking through the snow carrying the mother goat in her backpack along with her dog carrying the newborn kid in his backpack supposedly headed to a barn on the mountainside. Especially touching is the mother goat seemingly contented and pleased as she gazes at her baby’s safety while being carried by the young girl and the dog.
