During a recent visit to a pet store in Massachusetts, customers were taken aback by the sight of a little boy interacting with what appeared to be a young cow. However, upon closer inspection, it was revealed that the toddler was actually befriending Kernel, a harlequin Great Dane. Both the boy and Kernel were just one year old, which possibly contributed to their connection. The stark contrast in size between the two was quite astonishing.
Kernel and the young boy took a moment to observe each other. The toddler was fascinated by the enormous size of the dog and his patchy fur, resulting in laughter as they acquainted themselves. Kernel, on the other hand, seemed more interested in the boy’s scent, perhaps hoping to find remnants of food from a previous meal in his hair.
It is understandable that the gentle giant exhibited such a calm demeanor, as his owner had assisted him in obtaining certification as an AKC Canine Good Citizen. Kernel was even on the path to becoming a service dog. Nonetheless, his Instagram account revealed his endearing and playful nature.
Witness the heartwarming first encounter between these two adorable beings in the accompanying video, and share it with fellow dog enthusiasts. It is hoped that these newfound friends would have the opportunity to reunite in the near future.
