Little Rat Loves To Cuddle And Snuggle With His Giant Dog Friend

Nuka is a black German shepherd who lives in a house full of small animals such as kittens, rats, and rabbits. That’s the reason why he is obsessed with other animals, especially baby animals. Although he looks so big and strong, he has always been a gentle and sweet dog. Therefore, little animals are never scared of their big and perfect brother.

“Our vet said, when he was younger, that he was wise beyond his years … because he’s generally so placid and relaxed,” Nicole Yates, Nuka’s mom, told The Dodo.

In April, a local pet shop had to shut down due to the global spreading of COVID-19. Before closing the shop, they tried to look for emergency homes for their poor animals. In order to help the shop and the animals, Yates decided to add a rat into her busy house and named him Blue.

Blue was so happy to have a new home and a great brother. He loves Nuka so much that he follows his brother wherever he goes. He also loves to take a nap on Nuka’s thick fur because it makes the perfect spot for a cozy nap.

“There was this immediate clear connection between Blue and Nuka compared with my other rats,” Yates said. “It was more so Blue who seemed to adore Nuka! He loved snuggling into Nuka’s fur and if I put him down on the floor he would run to find Nuka.”

If Nuka sees that Blue is asleep, he won’t move to avoid waking up his little brother. The dog is happy to do that because he just wants his friends and brothers to be happy and healthy.

“Blue is a very placid rat so he’s really happy just being with Nuka and laying there with him, either snuggled into his mane or at his belly,” Yates said. “Nuka likes to bathe Blue with licks, which Blue doesn’t seem to mind either.”
