Nuka, a black German shepherd, lives in a house full of other animals such as rats, kittens, and rabbits. So he has definitely interacted with other animals, and it is safe to say that he is obsessed with baby animals.Despite her size, Nuka has a gentle soul and is very sweet.As a result, the small creatures are never afraid of their canine sibling.
According to Nuka’s human owner, Nicole Yates, “when he was younger, our vet said he was wise beyond his years… because he’s generally so placid and relaxed.”The local pet store had to close due to the COVID-19 pandemic.Before closing their doors, the shop looked for homes for the stray animals.
Kindhearted Nicole decided to adopt a rat, which she named Blue.The tiny creature was overjoyed to have found a new home as well as a caring older brother.Blue adores Nuka to the point where he follows him everywhere.Blue also enjoys napping on Nuka’s soft fur because it is a great place for a good nap.
“When compared to my other rats, there was this immediate clear connection between Blue and Nuka.” Blue, on the other hand, seemed to adore Nuka!He loved snuggling into Nuka’s fur and would run to find Nuka if I put him down on the floor,” Nicole explained. Blue appears to be a calm rat.If Blue is sleeping, Nuka makes sure not to move in order to avoid waking him up.That is how concerned Nuka is about Blue’s happiness.
Blue enjoys being with the dog and often lays next to him.The rat even rubs against Nuka’s mane and belly.Nuka occasionally licks Blue, and the rat doesn’t seem to mind.What a lovely friendship this dog and rat have.
