Child starts playing with Komondor: Dog's reaction to new playmate stuns everyone

The beauty of filming something is that you never know what you’ll capture on camera. And sometimes, like on this special occasion, you record something incredible.

The Komondor is an ancient breed of dog originally used to guard flocks of sheep. Its unique coat enabled protection from harsh weather, harmful foliage, and, of course, wolf bites.

Raising dogs with children

Today, the Komondor is mostly a family companion, though it’s not a breed for everyone. They have a strong protective instinct and aren’t always the most patient of dogs.

But, when trained and socialised properly, they can become man’s (and child’s) best friends! And there’s no better proof of that than this sweet video.

Whoever filmed this video was probably just expecting to see a baby excited to pet a dog. But the interaction is much more than that! The baby is smitten with the large white dog, and vice-versa!

An incredible bond

The dog rolls over on its back, trusting the baby to get up close and personal with him. The trust goes both ways, as the baby places her fingers in the dog’s mouth without a worry in the world!

The incredible patience and gentleness this dog shows towards this child is admirable. What a well-rounded pooch!

We urge Wamiz readers to always be cautious when letting a pet play with a child. No matter how sweet pets can be, they may sometimes feel uncomfortable with a child's rough play and children can’t always pick up on that. Better safe than sorry, always supervise interactions between a child and an animal!
