We can all agree that a puppy is pretty much the cutest thing ever, but when you throw in an animal pal, we’re sold! However, this German shepherd puppy and his baby duckling pal frolicking around a pool is unquestionably the newest and cutest pair we’re obsessing over now that warmer weather is here. We’ve seen dogs engage with new baby kittens and a golden retriever kiss his dolphin friend.
On the German shepherd puppy’s YouTube account, Rocky and his feathery duck companion were shown forging an unexpected connection. The video depicts the pair’s first meeting as the dog and ducks cool down from the summer heat by dipping into the pool.
Rocky looks bewildered at first as he takes a little time to completely inspect the darling duckling at a safe distance from outside of the pool. Rocky eventually decides to dive into the water with the small duckling for a closer look. After a few good sniffs, it’s obvious from the wagging tail that Rocky is completely smitten with his new feathery friend.
Since it was initially posted amid the dog days of heat in August 2020, the priceless video has received over 3 million views. Rocky’s obedience after being gently reprimanded by his owner for giving the duckling a playful puppy bite has been praised by many viewers, and many have also laughed at how adorable it is to see the young German shepherd attempt to cross the infant pool.
He is a wonderful youngster who listens to his parents, said one viewer. Another person remarked, “Rocky is so gregarious and curious, I couldn’t help but giggle when he had problems getting out of the water.” The walls of the pool are almost as tall as the little guy, so we can’t blame him.
The dog can be seen playing with several animals on Rocky’s YouTube account, including rabbits, kittens, and even a rooster! To find out who Rocky’s next new friend is, make sure to subscribe to his YouTube account.
