Chasing cats, wagging his tail: calf who was raised by dogs thinks he is a dog

What is the difference that you have hooves and horns cut. I love dogs and want to live the same way — why not consider yourself a dog?

“We took a calf, abandoned by their mother, and he thinks he’s a dog.” The owners of the farm, Happy Hens and Highlands Farm in the U.S. city of Asheville, North Carolina, have a 4 month old calf James. Funny baby feels fine, and the account of farmers in Instagram, where they often post photos of a calf, has already signed up 37.5 thousand users.

All our cows are special but Misty is probably our favorite (shhhh… don't tell Baby James). She was our first baby girl on the farm and can be a spoiled brat, but she's also the sweetest ever! She's given us 3 amazing babies and also adopted Hope after her mother died. Milly is her first baby girl. ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: #scottishhighland #cow #dailycute #babyanimals #babyanimalsofinstagram #furbaby #animallover #dailyfluff #cutenessoverload #animalsofinstagram #asheville #ashevillenc #northcarolina #nc #Scottish #highlandcow #farmlife #farmer #farmanimals #buzzfeedanimals #appalachianmountains #blueridgemountains #blueridgeparkway #blueridge #appalachian #thedodo

According to the owners of the farm, a 33-year-old Adam Hopson and his 32-year-old wife Emily, after birth, the calf was very large. Probably in childbirth there have been difficulties – some time in the baby’s brain had not received oxygen, because of which he was damaged. The kid didn’t know how to approach the mother, so farmers had to nurse it home.

Due to artificial feeding James did not quite understand where does the milk, so willing to lick everything, including people and dogs.

“James grew up, and it turned out that he was all right. He is very kind, sociable and active. The calf was able to make friends with the dogs, but with his flock – no,” said Emily Jamal hopson.

James update… This morning he seemed fine (not as hungry as normal but finally ate) Got home this evening and he wasn't feeling well. He refused to eat and didn't have much energy and would just take a few steps and lay down again. Not sure what's going on. Waiting to hear back from the vet. Winston the #chorkie knew he wasn't feeling good and gave him lots of kisses ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: #scottishhighland #dailycute #babyanimals #babyanimalsofinstagram #furbaby #animallover #dailyfluff #cutenessoverload #animalsofinstagram #asheville #ashevillenc #northcarolina #nc #Scottish #highlandcow #farmlife #farmer #farmanimals #buzzfeedanimals #appalachianmountains #blueridgemountains #blueridgeparkway #blueridge #appalachian

The calf lived in the same room with a couple of several weeks. During this time, the owners allowed him to play with dogs. When James was a toddler, he spent a lot of time with their four-legged friends, and adopted many of their habits. He is grown now, and it is not so simple.

“It becomes very large, therefore, if before, when he fought with our dogs, it was cute, now for them it is harsh and they don’t want to play with him as before,” explained Emily Jamal hopson.

Recently, the calf had to be moved into the pen with the hens, where he sometimes chases the cats. The bull settled two orphaned calves, which lifts the other cattle.

When instagram Emily and Adam became popular, they started to contact people who requested them to sell cows as Pets. But the pair refused all animals they are like family.
