Picture a heartwarming tale about a young orphan cow’s unexpected family in a pack of dogs. Buddy, a lovable calf, was taken in by Coral and Wayne Algie at only one day old. The Algiers’ dogs became Buddy’s caregivers and mentors, and as he grew up, he began to think of himself as a dog. Whenever he was happy, he wagged his tail just like his furry friends did. Sadly, Buddy’s mother died after getting trapped in a dam near the Algiers’ farm in New South Wales, Australia.
The Algie family added a new member to their furry family, Buddy, who joined them along with their other dogs. Buddy was taken in after his mother dog, Bada, had given birth to a whopping 11 puppies. At six weeks old, Buddy is already displaying typical dog-like tendencies such as playing catch with his siblings, wagging his tail joyfully, and cuddling up with his littermates during naptime.
According to Coral, Buddy was like a 12th puppy to Bada and considered him as one of her own. Despite being a cow, Buddy loved playing with humans and dogs alike, and even Coral thought he seemed more like a dog than a cow. Bada took such good care of the orphaned calf that she was often seen right by Buddy’s side.
While trying to save Buddy’s mother from the dam, Wayne and Coral unexpectedly came across Buddy. However, despite their best efforts, Buddy’s mother was too tired and sadly lost her life soon after they managed to rescue her.
Ever since the Algier family adopted him, Buddy has wasted no time settling into farm life. He’s become quite the companion to Bella and Lawson, their children. Coral shared that Buddy is a friendly cow who enjoys spending time with the kids – he’s often seen chasing and even riding bicycles with them.
Buddy may belong to the dog family, but he’s quite unique – he’s a cow! As he grows bigger and bigger, he’s had to start sleeping on the porch. Despite his size, Buddy drinks an impressive 10.5 liters of fresh milk every day, and he’ll eventually weigh up to 600kg. Nonetheless, his owners, the Algie couple, have promised to treat him with the love and care that he deserves, no matter how big he gets.
