Animal kingdom offers the greatest, yet the most unusual friendships, but nothing beats this incredible bond between a Golden Retriever and a wild deer. Best friends for over a decade, these two very unlikely companions perfectly show what animal world is all about. Everyone meet G-Bro, the gentlest golden retriever, and his very best friend Buttons, a rescued deer!
11-year-ago, when G-Bro’s human, Lorrie learned a deer was hit by a car, she immediately offered to help, even though she had no idea how deal with it. However, she decided to foster the poor wild animal. But little did she know her noble gesture will eventually change the deer’s life and her dog’s too.
“When we first rescued Buttons, we had a friend that had raised a deer, and somebody called them and said a mama deer got injured,” Lorrie explained. “They called us and we gladly accepted…It took a lot of work, but our whole goal was to let her be wild, but also become a part of the family.”

After Buttons fully recovered, and the time came for her to be released back in the wild, Lorrie and her family were not too happy about it, since they all grew fond of the friendly deer, but they eventually accepted it.
Surprisingly, Buttons did not wanted to leave her adopting family, especially her great buddy G-Bro. So even after releasing her, the faithful deer kept visiting her dear friends. Year passed and the rescued deer still adored to hang out with her friend dog and the family’s cat. So everyone got used with Buttons’ unexpected visits.
“Buttons will just show up at the door, and that’s when you know she wants to see her buddy,” Lorrie said. “She’ll even paw at the door if you’re not answering in a timely manner.”
But the most surprising visit was when the deer showed up with her two babies next to her side. Although the two fawns were only a few day old, Buttons wanted to introduce them to her dearest friend and to the family that saved her life. Unsurprisingly, G-Bro immediately fell in love with Buttons little ones and he even helps her friend with the maternal duties.
