This Nanny Pit Bull Enjoys Watching Over Her New Baby Sister All Day Long

Have you ever seen a dog watching over a newborn baby when she is sleeping and awake? When you need someone to keep an eye on your baby for a while, your affectionate and smart dog is an excellent choice. They are dedicated babysitters. They simply love this new friend and feel happy to take care of her. This also what Ellie, an adorable and responsible pit bull babysitter does with her baby sister. She always checks on her little sister to make sure she is ok.

“You can’t take Peytyn anywhere without Ellie following her” ❤️️

The first days when Kevin Smith and his wife rescued Ellie, she was too scared to move.

This pit bull seemed particularly frightened of people, especially men when adopted. But Smith refused to give up on her. He gradually earned her trust and showed her lots of love and comfort. Of course, he didn’t try in vain.

“At first, I was worried because she was terrified to even leave the ground. She was frozen to the ground, and you could tell she’d had it rough,” Smith told The Dodo. “Now she wants everyone to love her and pet her. She begs for attention.”

This pit bull received all the love and care for an only child in the family for years. But when Smith’s wife got pregnant, they weren’t sure how Ellie would react to their growing family.

Few months later, Ellie seemed to be ready to become a big sister. “When my wife was pretty close to her due date, Ellie used to lay her head on her belly and listen to her,” Smith said. “It was pretty much a nightly occurrence.”

When the pit bull was introduced to Peyton for the first time, she immediately fell in love with her baby sister.

“We had Peytyn in the bedroom, and usually Ellie is happy to see us, but she just bypassed us and went straight in to see Peytyn,” Smith said.

Ellie seems to get hooked into her new role in the family now. She acts as a full-time babysitter and security guard of 5-month-old Peytyn. Wherever Peytyn goes, Ellie isn’t far behind — which was a little annoying at first.

“You can’t take Peytyn anywhere without Ellie following her,” Smith said. “You take Peytyn to the changing table and Ellie’s there making sure her baby’s OK … She just sits right there and stares at you. You pick her up to move her and she’s following you.”

Ellie always checks on Peytyn to make sure that she is ok when her parents are not in here for while. Whether they’re eating dinner or taking a shower while watching the baby monitor, Ellie will pop into Peytyn’s room to say hi.

“Ellie keeps a constant eye on Peytyn,” Smith said. “She just sticks her head right above the crib — she never goes into the crib but stays above it and makes sure she’s OK.”

Baby Peytyn gets used to seeing Ellie beside her, and has learned how to pet her dog gently. “Ellie’s always sitting next to her and puts her head on her leg, and Peytyn puts her hand on her head,” Smith said. “Peytyn’s learned to pet and be gentle with her.”

Smith and his wife have always loved the pit bulls but he is astonished by Ellie’s unexpected devotion to his baby. “The breed isn’t bad,” Smith said. “They’re actually very gentle and caring.”
