The faithful German shepherd becomes the protector of the orphaned deer cubs

It’s amazing how loyal and protective dogs can be. They are always ready to step up and help someone in need, from people to other dogs.

It’s even more inspiring to see them protect another animal. We love seeing different species form unlikely bonds, like this dog who became best friends with an injured deer.

Sarge is a 9-year-old German Shepherd who got a very unexpected new baby brother when his owner Cheryl Stephen brought home an orphaned fawn she had found on the street.

To Cheryl’s surprise, the dog immediately stepped forward to take care of the poor deer, which she named Buckwheat.

“Something clicked in Sarge and he took Buckwheat right away,” Cheryl told The Dodo. “He wanted to be involved in every aspect of Buckwheat’s care…he took on the role of caretaker for Buckwheat.”

As the deer grew to his feet, Sarge was happy to lead him around, and Buckwheat followed close behind as if he were his big brother.

“When we carried the buckwheat outdoors, Sarge walked beside it and stopped it from wandering,” Cheryl said.

Over time, buckwheat has grown. It got to the point where she no longer needed Sarge’s help and was outgrowing the house.

It was finally ready to return to the wild.

But while Buckwheat is now on his own, Sarge still has plenty of deer to tend to.

Cheryl has continued to take in and rehabilitate injured and orphaned deer, and Sarge is always ready to help. While some of the deer don’t make it, they give them all the love and care they can.

“When I walk in the door carrying a fawn, Sarge springs into action,” Cheryl told The Dodo. “He Wants to check on them and will frantically sniff and sniff to determine their condition.”

“The fawns are attracted to Sarge and feel safe in his presence. The sergeant will not leave their side.

Thank you, Sergeant, for always taking such good care of these baby deer when they need help! Show how smart and loving dogs can be.
