A 9-year-old German Shepherd named Sarge became an adoptive and caring mom for many orphaned fawns

The object of people’s admiration will always remain the unique ability of dogs being so friendly, caring and faithful.

Their big hearts are open to those who need comfort, care, and defense.

It refers not only to people, but to other living creatures.

A 9-year-old German Shepherd named Sarge became an adoptive and caring mom for many orphaned fawns

German Shepherd Sarge is a kind dog, who feels compassion for orphaned little fawns.

Her Owner Cheryl Stephan, a big-hearted lady, adopted many orphaned animals during the years, including some little fawns.

Sarge was very friendly and kind with all the adopted animals, but he had a special compassion with Buckheat, who was the first orphaned fawn adopted by Cheryl.

When Sarge met this little creature the first time, some warm feelings appeared in his heart. He instantly took to this fawn and soon became his guardian.

The kind dog was involved in all the aspects of Buckwheat’s care. He immediately took on the important role of being the fawn’s “mom”.

Wherever fawn went, the dog followed him, just being sure that everything was ok with Buckheat.

When the fawn grew and became independent, venturing out alone, sarge had to go and find him and bring him again back.

When Buckheat grew and become strong, Cheryl had to release him in the wild.

That made kind dog very sad. His owner even thought he would never be so friendly with the other animals like he was with this one.

But luckily she was wrong. As soon as Cheryl brought other fawns for rehabilitation, Sarge again showed his compassion.

He quickly became a baby-sit for these wonderful creatures.

    So heartwarming. I once had a dog that acted like that. But he passed away and he was a rat terrier Chihuahua. He thought that all kittens were his children. It was adorable. Sarge’s story kinda reminds me of him.

    ….. I just love 💕 reading stories, like this, about helping out all kinds of animals by other animals – please keep sharing them w/us, OK!!!!!

  63. Beth Rowe

    Love fawns. My family raised one when I was growing up. She was paper trained and slept with the cats on our sofa❤ Her name was Dafadil. She lived in the house for 9 months until we set her free. She readapted to the wild and saw her a few more times and even became pregnant. Beautiful childhood memory. We lived way out in the country.

  64. Steva

    The caring and love that Sarge has shown these fawns is heartwarming. My life would not be complete without animals in my life. Our adopted dog has given our lives such warmth and joy and she and our adopted cat adore each other.

  65. Lillian

    Interesting! If an animal can show compassion, how much more human beings? I think those who mistreat kids (orphans) should watch this. I’m touched.

  66. Joyce Wilkinson

    Sarge melts my heart. ❤

    We underestimate many animals but they show us how caring they can be to other animals, orphaned, or injured. A lesson human beings could learn from them.

    I have also rescued several fawns from our back yard. The mother would jump our fence have her baby but could not get them back out of our yard . We would put the baby on the outside of the gate and the baby usually made a shrieking sound and mama showed up to take the baby away
