Ted is a Pinscher who accompanied his owner’s pregnancy and lovingly welcomed the newborn, Alice: now he is inseparable from the little girl. The story of a little dog and a baby was told by Ana Kelly, who lives in Duque de Caxias, Rio de Janeiro: she is Alice’s mother and Ted’s owner. Images that highlight how the four-legged friend is absolutely not jealous of the child.
In an interview with a Brazilian newspaper Ana said that since she saw Ted she was sure that he would bring a lot of joy to the family. Her thoughts were confirmed day after day: Ted conquered everyone with his affectionate and meek character. He has proved to be very protective of her daughter: he always wants to be attached to her.
Her attachment has already been recorded since the baby was in the womb: she leaned her head to feel her “little sister”. Now that Alice is born, Ted accompanies her to every corner of the house. “I knew he would get along because he never growled at anyone, it wouldn’t have been any different with my eldest,” the woman said.
The Instagram profile @meupinscherfofo tells the bond between Ted and Alice, surpassing 4 million views and thousands of comments full of affection. Among them: “I don’t understand how there are people who give away their pets or hurt when a child is born, happy birthday to you”; “Speechless… a speck fell in my eye.”
