We love animal friends, but we especially love mismatched pairs of animal friends. Different species, different sizes — we love them all. Good news if you do too, because this video features possibly the cutest mismatched pair on the entire Internet.
The video starts with a German shepherd that towers over his bite-size kitten friend. He is clearly totally smitten with her, and is watching her struggle up stairs that are much taller than she is. At first, the shepherd does as instructed by his owner, and lets her try the stairs on her own.
But of course he can't take it anymore. She needs help! She's just an itty bitty thing, and those stairs are ginormous. So he does what any good friend would do.
Viewers might recoil at first as he takes her up in his giant mouth, which could swallow her whole. According to Dog Time, though, German shepherds are intelligent, devoted and skilled at basically anything you ask them to do. What a perfect companion!
Of course as soon as they make it to the top, he gently puts her down and nuzzles right up to her. We love it! If you want to see some more adorable unlikely animal friends, check out one of our favorite articles by National Geographic.
