Little man's best friend: Adorable photographs of big dogs treating little kids as though they were their own pups


Dogs are often known as 'man's best friend' and in this adorable collection of photographs of dogs and small children; they could also be considered 'little man's best protector.'

Even though large dogs may seem intimidating when first meets the eye, some breeds of dogs are great caretakers and often look after young children as if it were their own pups.

Boredpanda.com writes that raising kids with dogs teaches them compassion, confidence, and responsibility and can even keep them in good physical health.

Even though in some of the photographs the babies are almost as small as the dog's paw, the love between child and canine is momentous.

Whether it's sleeping together, kissing nose to nuzzle, or taking a little stroll, when kids and dogs are side by side, they're never bored and always cute.



Doggone cute: This large dog sleeps right next to this baby to make sure she's safe during her slumber





All mine: This sweet dog is holding this baby as though it were its own kin





This way: Dogs can be great teachers, especially when they show kids how to open their mouths during meal time





Santa's little helper: They may seem like an unlikely pair but this small baby and this large dog are perfectly happy to celebrate Christmas together




Love at first sight: The deep connection between human beings and dogs is one of life's beautiful mysteries




All bundled up: this dog and child walk side by side on a chilly autumn evening and while one needs a hood, the other has plenty of fur to stay warm


He 'nose' the way: taking a walk in the forest is best done by inviting a dog with a nose for direction





Nap time: Nothing makes a nap more perfect than having a big fluffy fur ball as a pillow

I LOVE these photos!!! I love big dogs--all our dogs have been great with kids. Our boxer Sabo weighs 90 lbs, not nearly as much as the Great Danes or St. Bernard shown, but he's pretty tall. Our granddaughter will lay on top of him when he's sleeping on the floor. I need to get a photo of that before she stops doing it!

Thanks Swanky!

This reminds me of my childhood. Whenever I was at my grams house, her german sheperds were my babysitters. :smile:

Patient beasts. Always stuck close by. Never let me ride horsey (go figure) but didnt mind me swinging their tails or sticking flowers in their ears. I miss them.
