It’s natural to worry a little when you’re thinking of bringing a second pet into your home, especially when it’s a bird and you’re not sure how your dog will react.
In fact, being worried is actually a good thing because it’s important to plan ahead to prepare for the dog and the bird to carefully meet and get to know each other.
Alecia Owens was in this situation. She already had her beloved dog Lucy, a 2-year-old Cavoodle and just wasn’t sure if this was going to work out. Although her dog was very gentle and sweet, she knew that dogs were natural predators to birds.
Alecia decided to try it out, and she knew she would have to watch them very closely. So she introduced them to each other and stayed with them, waiting to see their reaction and ready to spring into action if needed.
Luckily, there was nothing to fear. From the moment they first met, the dog and parakeet quickly became best friends. They have quickly become inseparable and like to snuggle.
Despite the size differences, the love and care the dog and parakeet show each other is amazing. It’s so cute to watch the two together.
The dog seems to have no aggression whatsoever. It’s obvious this little parakeet stole her heart. Who would have thought?
Watch the dog and parakeet interact in the video. And be sure to watch to the end to see the surprising thing the bird did to the dog!
