Meet Goliath, the Cow Who Thinks He's One of the Dogs | Fox News Insider
A rescued baby cow named Goliath is convinced he's a dog. Shaylee is convinced that Goliath believes he is a dog, too. The bull runs with. According to The Huffington Post, Goliath the cow was born on a California dairy farm. He was taken from his mother and was headed for. Life had not been kind to little Goliath, a weak and sickly calf who was born on a dairy farm and destined for slaughter. The future looked awfully grim until.
The little calf could only drink a small amount of milk at a time. The little fellow was still very weak and unable to stand unassisted. The little calf was so small that he could fit comfortably in my lap.
Meet Goliath, The Calf Who’s Convinced He’s A Dog!
Most newborn calves average about kg at birth — this calf weighed no more than 15kg. It would have been easy to give up and let the calf die but we were determined to give him the best chance at life that we could; his mother made it so much easier for us too allowing us to milk her with a minimum of fuss. Then, on the 3rd day a wonderful miracle happened.

The little calf stood on his own; not for very long and it was a wobbly old effort, but he did stand! We brought him over to his Mum and encouraged him to suck.
The little calf could stand up unassisted and attempt to have a feed on his own. Full credit to the mother who recognised that it was her calf; she was very patient with him while he found his land legs. When Goliath was born he reminded us of one of those Shar Pei dogs — the ones with all the wrinkles and excess skin.
Three days old and standing alone! Goliath looked like a wrinkly old man.
The poor little fellow really felt the heat. This was at 9am and already the temperature was over 40 degrees making the air hot and dry. We rigged up a shade area for Goliath and he spent most of the day resting.

His Mum would come and check on him regularly and give him a reassuring lick. The heatwave continued and we brought more heifers into the yards so that we could set up a shade shelter for them and their calves. Goliath now had some mates and once he became a little bit more confident on his wobbly legs he would try to play like they did once the sun had gone down and it was a bit cooler. Goliath is one-week old.

The other calf, born that afternoon, makes Goliath look like a dwarf. Even the heifer is curious about the funny little creature. Goliath continued to thrive and he continued to amaze us with his determination to live. Full credit also has to go to his young mother, Eversleigh Ember. She was incredibly patient and the most attentive heifer imaginable.
When the time came to let the heifers back out into the holding paddock to eat some green pick that had come up after a shower of rain little Goliath found it very hard to negotiate the rough ground.
