Watch: Baby plays with Komondor, but scene takes a surprising turn

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 which was originally used to guard flocks of sheep. Their unique coat enabled protection from harsh weather, harmful foliage, and of course – from wolf bites.

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.

Raising dogs with children

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, completely 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!

While this video is incredibly cute, please never leave a child and a dog alone. We do not recommend letting a child getting into a dog's personal space this much either. Dogs will give signs they are uncomfortable, but children may not be able to pick up on them. Better safe than sorry, always supervise interactions between them closely!

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!
