A spoilt Bulldog turned into a responsible leader of the pack after the arrival of his human siblings. And now this adorable pooch couldn't imagine life without them!

Gunnar the Bulldog loved being the centre of attention. As an only child, he got all the strokes he wanted and never had to compete for his dog-parents' love.
Could Gunnar share the love?
So when Gunnar's mum and dad decided it was time to make a human baby, they had a few concerns. Would Gunnar get jealous?
But they soon found out that there was nothing to worry about!
Because when Gunnar realised his mum was pregnant, the adorable pooch would lay on the bump and let out a few gentle whimpers. It was like he was saying, "I know my brother or sister is in there, and I'll always keep them safe."
And he certainly lived up to his role as the big brother. Because when little Wyatt came into the world, Gunnar never left his side.
And he was just as protective when his second brother, Lachlan, arrived a few years later.
Gunnar loves being the big brother
Speaking to The Dodo, Gunnar's dog mum said:
"The first time Wyatt came home, and then the day we brought Lachlan home, Gunnar was like 'Oh, yeah, they're my people too."
Gunnar now how has three baby siblings to look after. And while it's not always easy, this former only child is loving life as the big brother of the pack!
