Despite the saying, “A dog is a man’s best friend,” every dog could become best friends with other animals, even their mortal enemy, the felines. So if you doubt the idea of your dog getting along well with other pets, then fear not.

Golden Retrievers are one of the friendliest dog breeds. They are perfect for families because of their loyal and easy-going personalities. These pups typically love everyone and everything, and a Golden Retriever named Loryn is no exception. Loryn’s love is not limited to humans — she welcomes every animal on her farm with open paws.

Loryn’s love for her friends from the farm is just exquisite.

Her human mom, Andrea Holley, brings all sorts of baby animals on their family farm. When each one arrives in their home, Loryn never fails to make them feel safe and comfortable.

She helps Andrea raise and takes care of these animals around the farm, and she does a really good job handling her duties.

When Andrea brought home four baby goats, Loryn immediately welcomed them.

Loryn never hesitated to bring herself to them as they were being introduced to their new environment. Andrea found no problems with Loryn’s behavior toward the goats since she already knew that Loryn got used to all sorts of animals on their farm.

Loryn adopted the goats as her own and took her maternal instincts to a higher level.

“She is truly a mother hen and takes in every baby we have here as her own,” Andrea told The Dodo.

The goats, Mia, Henry, Delilah, and Daisy Mae, accepted Loryn’s love right away.

They just instantly became inseparable from each other. The goats would follow their new mother as Loryn took them around the farm. They even take naps and cuddle together.

When they played by chasing each other around, Loryn would stand guard and keep watch so that she could make sure of the goats’ safety. Even when the goats grew up, their bond remained as close as before.

If Daenerys from Game of Thrones is the mother of dragons, Loryn is the mother of all other animals.

It is not only farm animals that Loryn mothers. She also assists Andrea in taking care of kittens, other puppies, and birds. With Loryn’s unbiased and never-ending compassion that she gives to these farm animals, she could just be considered as the ultimate mother dog.

“Loryn is my right-hand man and always helps corral the babies when we’re outside or round them up while playing inside,” Andrea shared.

Loryn never fails to impress Andrea with the love and kindness she gives as a mother. In one of Andrea’s interview with Care, she told them that Loryn was spayed, so she never had pups. She believes that she could have been an awesome mother to her pups if she had any. Loryn might just be the sweetest Golden Retriever that you could ever see on the internet.

It is just wonderful that animals like these four goats were given a chance to live in a loving home. If you want to see more of Loryn and her farm animal friends, check out her Instagram page.
