In the video, you see that the puppy has its butt in the air, wagging his tail —clearly ready to play. Then, the parrot starts play-biting his fluffy sibling's nose! Soon, the Shetland Sheepdog is swatting gently at the parrot while the latter is hopping right around him, continuing to play.
It's quite a remarkable sight — the highly intelligent parrot definitely understands the dog is a puppy and plays so gently with him. It's as if the parrot is welcoming the puppy into the home, making him feel comfortable there.
While it's not shown in the video, we're sure it was absolutely a relief for the family to see their parrot accept their new family member.
This is a video you have to see for yourself, so be sure to check out the adorable friendship blossoming in the video below!
