A German Shepherd named Rex was rescued by an organization called the Puriton Horse and Animal Rescue in England, but his behavioral issues were so severe that he was almost put to sleep. However, Rex was introduced to a goose named Geraldine and he underwent an amazing transformation. Rex became much more mellow and he never leaves Geraldine’s side. Read more from The Scotsman:
Rex the German Shepherd was so vicious it would take two people to feed him - one to distract him and the other to throw a bowl of food into his enclosure.
He would bark and growl at anything that passed and would even try to poke his head through his run to eat wild rabbits which roamed past.
But when introduced to Geraldine the goose the dog immediately mellowed and the two became inseparable.
At first the owners feared Rex would literally bite his feathered friend’s head off for straying into his territory - but Geraldine took him under her wing.
The pair now like nothing more than going for a walk in the woods and snuggle down to sleep together in Rex’s bed every night.
Staff have been surprised by how close the pair have become and believe the once angry bird and growling dog bring out the softer side in each.
“It’s so comical to see them because they love each other to bits,” said Sheila Brislin, who runs the Puriton Horse and Animal Rescue, near Bridgwater, Somerset.
“She just runs around alongside him all day long and whenever we take him for a walk in the woods she has to come too.
“They are very affectionate and he’s always licking her head and kissing her. She snuggles into him and they sleep together every night.
